Hold onto your butts. Yesterday my old computer's hard disk died. Finally fed up with dell, figured I'd worked with computers long enough to just build my own. Went to Fry's, got these for a new computer- 8gb DDR3 1600 DUAL ANTEC EA 650 Green 650w ATX PSU ASUS PCE-N15 PCI-E wireless network adapter Gigabyte GTX 660 2 GB GPU Corsair 300R case MSI FM2-A75MA-E35 Mother Board AMD FM2 A8-6600K quad core FM2 socket @ 3.9 ghz Window's 7 Home Edition 64 bit Now, bear in mind that I've never installed Window's 7 on a clean system, let alone mucked around with the BIOS much. This is all being done on a clean system. Assembled everything, tried installing Window's. Immediately hit with an error message about memory_management. Look around, figure out that I need to put the DVD drive as the boot priority. Do that, try again. Windows installs fine up till it gets to the "Update" phase, at which point it crashes again, can't even catch the error code. Try to reinstall again, this sort of cycle goes on and on till eventually it tells me "unexpected error, verify that the installation sources are accessible and restart installation: Error Code 0xC0000005" After which I restart the computer and suddenly the installation acts like everything is A-OK and carries on the installation. It'd be a lie if I said it went well after that. Half the time it'd crash for any number of reasons till finally it was so bad that the keyboard wouldn't work at the login screen. Any pearls of wisdom on where to go from here? I'm at wit's end.
