It might take a couple of days to troubleshoot, so hang in there

Thank you for replying

I reset the cmos, checked JP3, Set the system to startup on the AG
and not PCI first, and set the boot sequence to start with the cdrom
then a hard drive

I'm booting from the xp cd and I'm doing a fresh install every time

Yes, it is a maxtor and it's a SATA drive natively, I'm not using tha
weird adapter thing

One thing that I forgot to mention. When I had my old 30g ide driv
connected, I did manage to install iwndows xp on it and it didn'
lock up. I assumed all my problems were over and decided to ad
another 512M of memory (512M pc2700 by ultra) and the 160g Maxto
SATA drive. That's when I started getting the lockups

I keep thinking that it's a power supply problem, but why would tha
be the case, I'm only running one drive at a time, not both of the
and even then, it should be able to handle two hds and a dvd burne
with no problems, shouldn't it?

My power supply is a 425W

I'm going to disconnect the SATA and reconnect the 30g and see if i
locks up, but if it doesn't lockup, those that mean that the SATA i
just bad? It's easy enough to exchange for another one or
different brand
