PLEASE SUPPLY RELEVANT INFORMATION:
Operating System Version:Win98
Problem Application Name & Version: EVERYTHING!
Problem Hardware Make & Model:Maxtor Diamond Plus 9 and Sempron 2300
Error Messages: None



Hi,

I have recently purchased a Maxtor 120gb HD and a Sempron 2300 CPU.  After installing this lot in my case i started up and installed windows with no problem.  The first time it loads Win98, no problem, but as soon as i try to install ANYTHING the pc locks up and gives me a black screen with spaced green lines running across the top of the screen.  Sometimes the PC turns itself off after a few seconds.

I have formatted and reinstalled a squillion times but i still get the same problem.

Anyone seen this before?

I doubt very much that all you have is a harddrive and a CPU, so why not give the rest of the specs as well, being motherboard brand & model, videocard brand & model, brand and strength of the PSU and what kind and amount of RAM you used?

What is it with this board? If you don't give pin point specifications you get a spanking.  Well, i have a Potato for a 3d card:P, my motherboard is made out of cheese:D and my RAM is several pieces of celery rammed into the memory modules???

Oh and by the way, it was a RAM problem...faulty chip Cool

Ta ta!
