Hello,i'd got a problem with my pc. Every time i try to install windows i'd got a BSOD. In windows xp i got atapi.sys error even when i boot from windows xp live cd, i'd got a BSOD too. In windows 7 i got MACHINE_CHECK_EXCEPTION BSOD, but some times diffrent. When tried to installed ubuntu, i got CPU failed report. Using win 98 live cd it's running well. Then i try to install win xp from another pc, when back to my pc...i'd got BSOD too. But i can enter to windows using safe mode. FYI, every time i unplug and plug again any hardware from mobo, there is "CMOS checksum error" report shown when booting. It is normal? Any one can help my problem?

Check memory using memtest86. Almost certainly a bad stick of RAM.

I too agree on it being a RAM related error in most probability.. If You've got multiple RAM sticks then remove and/or try placing them in different slots and try installing windows again..

I'd tested it using memtest86 and no error found. Replaced memory, vga card with a new/good one but it still the same...

I already placed the memory in other DIMM slots too but nothing change
