Pull all but abt 1 gig of ram. If the dvd is from a download you may need to download it again and reburn it onto dvd.
Let us know how it turns out.
Thanks for the quick reply,
I only have 2 sticks of ram, 2 GB each, I've tried with just one in there and still the same result.
The DVD is a download but I know the dvd is fine because after the second error, i used it to install windows 7 on my laptop and it worked like a charm.
I had also disabled floppy support and had 1st boot from cd/dvd, 2nd boot from HDD and 3rd boot disabled.
i have also cleared my CMOS (there is a push switch on the motherboard itself) then reset the boot sequence and tried it all again.
I should also mention that i don't have any on-board video card so i have to use the 5750.
I believe this particular error is usually the case if you have an extra hardware connected to the computer but i have nothing extra connected. i even unplugged the front usb wires and the power and reset switches (again the motherboard has built in power, reset and clr CMOS switches that i use)
Although I could always give up and get a new computer from a big box store. I really really wanna figure out this issue just for the peace of my mind.
