300 watt power supply

I am building a computer and having problems trying to get the computer to boot up.  I have tried disconnecting everything but the essentials and am still having the same error.  The board has dual bios.  To even get into bios I need to clear CMOS and then restart the computer.  It will then start the install of Windows XP but I get an error blue screen that talks about dissabling shadowing or a compatibility issue.  All items are recognized and I've tried a different video card and still get the same error.  I tried specifying that it is an 8x graphics card.  Not sure what the problem is.  Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Seems to me like you're power supply isn't doing the trick. Only 300 watt is cutting it close, especially with the really new stuff you're using. I'd get at least a 400 watt. If that doesn't work I'd have to guess it was a MoBo problem because of your BIOS problems.

Good luck.

I think I found the problem.  I upgraded to a beta version of bios I found on the web which solved some of the problems and then found the advanced chipset features in bios which is hidden and changed the speed to 4x and dissabled HT.  It appears to me the 3400 processor isn't supported by this board.  I bought it as a bundle from Newegg and from other post I saw in tech rooms this seems to be the problem.  AMD doesn't even give the specs for the 939 socket 3400 on there site.  I would stay away from it.  Thanks for the reply
