    Hi,

    I have quite a bit of knowledge with computers, building them loading xp etc etc but I have never seen this before, this is the error I am getting.

    TRAP 0000000E ================PAGE FAULT=====================

    ** At linear address 00000000

    Then a lot of text, let me know if you want me to type it all out...

    This happens even with the extra memory removed, tried swapping the H/D for a brand new one, the error occurs as soon as the H/D or CD try to boot XP / XP Setup

    Any clues chaps I'm at the point where I'm thinking the M/B is stuffed although I can get in to BIOS to set defaults???

    Cheers for any help :)

    im guessing you have the bios set to boot from cd ? doubt a bad cable could cause this but you never know, if neither the hdd or cd drive are acting up in leaning towards a cable or board fault, maybe the ide port on the board is acting up
