I am having some problems with my pc (again!)
yesterday i bought a new 1TB HDD and 2GB more ram to total 4GB RAMwhen i first installed it i had a few problems but they worked out fine, i then checked in the Bios and it picked up the RAM to total 4096MB. i then tried to install Windows 7 onto the 1TB and format the 250GB HDD. but windwos refused to install onto it, it would get to %16 and then just stop. so i burnt a new DVD, tried again, still not working so i burnt another at 4X burning speed, still didnt work
. so i tried a known windows Vista disc, still didnt work. So i tried installing with one of my burnt wondws 7 discs onto my 250GB and it worked perfexctly! Does anyone know of any reasons why it wouldn't work?
once i got the OS installed i went back into the bios to try and re-overclock the CPU, when i went back into there i noticed that the Bios was only now saying that i had 4096 installed RAM and 3584 usable...
does anybody know why this may be happening?
Ever since i installed they new RAM and HDD the computer would only boot 50% of the time, as in i would turn it off and then turn it on again and i would get a beep code that goes like this --- PAUSE -----
(-'s are beeps)
i would then restart it and it would POST BUT! it would fail to overclock. i Would get a message and a beep after POST saying "OverClock Failed!)
thank you for reading and your patience and hoep you can help me.
