hey guys, i have been trying to fix this computer and here are the specs AMD Athlon 64 3500+ (replaced once) PC Chips A135G+ (replaced once) 1 gig DDR2 RAM Onboard VGA Video Card Onboard Realtek Audio PATA IDE Maxtor HDD 120gig (swapped with WD PATA Caviar once) basically, my girlfriend was on this cpu one night and restarted it. after restart it would not turn back on. I've purchased a video card for the this board (PCI-E) but that was not the problem. I erased all the data and formatted the disk, but XP will not install on this computer. I used the HDD as master on my own computer to install XP PRO SP2. The problem occurs when i turn the computer on. during post it seems to boot normally but says (CPU FREQUENCY PLEASE RESETTING CPU FREQUENCY) good grammar right? Option of F1 to continue or DEL to get forward. either way, i have reset the settings and set to optimized settings and cleared CMOS manually. the computer completes post and asks me how i want to boot. no booting options work because IMMEDIATELY after i select an option, i see a flicker of BSOD (blue screen of death) and the system restarts.
