I have built a new computer and can not get XP to load, it hangs every time with 34 minutes left to complete the installation. I have tried every Bios combo I can think of and still no go. I can load 98 just fine. Any ideas?

Computer:

Soyo SY-K7VTA Pro AMD w/onboard sound
AMD 133 Processor
256 Meg 133 Ram
Pine Nvidia TNT2 M64/Vanta PCI VGA
Soyo case w/300W PS

Try setting your BIOS to fail-safe or safe mode and disabling onboard sound. You might also try moving your PCI card to a different slot on the motherboard.

If you manage to install, enable your BIOS settings just a few at a time to try and isolate the hardware conflict. Im guessing here, but I would bet it's a video or sound driver conflict.

I GOT IT! Tried everything, finally powered down, pulled APG vedio card, powered up, powered down, reinstalled card, powered up and XP finished install. XP works perfectly!

Thanks

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
