Processor: AMD Athlon Model 1700 RAM: 256MB SyncDRAM (Originally, but I am not sure if my stepdad has upgraded it) HDD: 40GB UltraDMA (Again, this is the original but I am unsure if it's been upgraded Graphics Card: nVidia NV11 MX200 OS: Originally Windows XP Home, Microsoft Works 5.0, however there are complications, to be elaborated. My problem: I cannot remember how the computer failed, but I know it was a couple of years ago. Now, when the PC is turned on, I get this: (in order of what happens on screen) Compaq Logo: Boot Order: Compaq Logo (Again): Boot Order (Also again): Compaq Logo (A third time): Error: This is what happens when I boot the computer with Compaq Quickrestore (Disc 1) inserted: Compaq Logo: No Idea What Any of this Means: Compaq Quickrestore: And it Proceeds With This Error: I also have fresh hardware at my disposal: Two 40GB HDD's (Western Digital: ) (Hitachi: ). Eight RAM Boards (Four of which are 512MB, the other four are 256MB) And 3 RS components, unfortunately I haven't a clue what each of them are Any suggestions and help is appreciated, thank you in advance!!!
