    BSOD on anything

    My buddy had a no-power on condition with his comp not long ago, and it looked like the psu was dead. So i changed that, and came to discover no power was making it though the mobo, and he replaced it with a ECS 848P-A (he needed cheap).

    Now it loads but when you go into windows or try and boot from a windows CD to install a new copy, its BSOD. All the time, right after it says loading IDE (hdd) or loading from cdrom.

    Any ideas? I thought an IDE cable when i first saw it bsod after loading the hdd, but both ides gone bad?

    It's a P4 2.4GHZ/512MB DDR ram/Winxp

    He doesnt know what caused the original problem so im at a loss. Ideas?

    Sounds like bad ram, what does the stop message say?
    PHP and XML
    Let's talk about SAX
