I just put together my first computer, and here are the specs:
-MSI K8T W/ an AMD Sempron64 2800+. Bought at CompUSA for 150 w/ replacement gurantee.
-NVidia GeForce 5500 O.C. 256mb graphics card. Bought New at Wal-Mart for 89.99.
-Unknown case, but it's new with some smudges and whatnot.
-PNY 1024mb (1GB) DDR333/PC2700 Ram. Bought at Circuit City for 105.99.
-LG DVD/CD-RW combo. Came with our old computer. works good, still very quiet.
-Unknown media card reader. Comes with 2 USB 2.0 slots.
-Mitsuni 3 1/2 Floppy drive, very old, but functional.
-Western Digital 40GB HDD, works great, and no dead partitions.
-mouse and keyboard, both used, but functional
-HP pavilion 17" CRT monitor, used, but functional
-300watt ATX PSU. Bought new at CompUSA for 40
Here's the problem, when I boot up the comp, it posts, goes to the logo screen, then this message comes up:
FXO 093 Media Test Failed, Check cable
FXO 065 Now Exiting ROM
Insert Bootable disk, or go into bios to select desired boot drive.
Then sometimes it says this:
PS2 Keyboard not found (even with the keyboard plugged in)
CMOS checksum BAD.
Press F1 to enter Setup
Press F2 to boot with Optimized Setup
With the XP OS disk loaded, it proceeds to install windows, as normal, and when it restarts, it displays one of the 2 error messages above, and restarts and does the same.
I'm not sure what the hell is up with my comp, or if I did something bad, but some help would be appreciated.
