Default New Build not working crashing?

Hey,

Just build a new pc for a mate...specs below...and upon first boot, has turned on fine, had a little problem with the ROM drive connections,but thats fixed....now ive put the XP Disc in, and when it starts loading the files....at random times, can be even before it loads the disc, can be during the loading files or can even get to the screen before you start installing....I have reseated the RAM, checked all connections...could be bad RAM? Ill post a pic in a second...

Athlon 64 X2 3800+
ASUS M2N-MX Mobo (using the intergrated graphics)
2X512 Corsair DDR667 Value RAM
80GB Seagate SATA2 Harddisk

Any suggestions?

Thanks,

Matt

so when you say starts randomly loading the files, do you mean the files on the disk?

lol yea its ok its been doing that a ton lately, and i have no idea what the problem is, you may want to take some ram from a buddies pc and put it in there to test it, and try a dedicated gfx card to check, other than that i would think that something somewhere is seriously messed up...
