My desktop crashed....Windows 2000 Pro....Intel D850GB motherboard, Intel P4 1.4GHZ Processor. The Processor took a permanant vacation. I have placed my HDD's into another PC...Intel D845GVSR motherboard, Intel Celeron 2.40GHZ processor. According to Intels website and my motherboard utility disk, my Bios and drivers are up to most current. It booted once without error. Every boot attempted since has stopped with a ram r/w error or random error and can only boot to safemode. I have tested the ram with memx86 with multiple passes without error. I performed a repair with the 2K pro disk and was able to get it to boot normally once again. I attempted to start an application and it rebooted and now am back to square one with the same thing. The only errors in eventviewer that may pertain is a page file error. The ram is Corsair Value Select - VS256MB400 X 2 = 512MB. According to Corsair's website the ram is compatible with this motherboard. I have performed disk diagnostics and both HDD's are healthy. The bios is set to defaults. Wiping the HDD's is not an option at the moment. (And yes I do have backups)I am now in the process of polishing my 2 iron for some minor PC adjustments.
Thanks in advance for any help!
