I decided to join as Iím building a new computer. My current computer is 7 years and ití time for replacement. I know very little about my home computer so I figured the best way to learn is build one. As one of my pet peeves is paying somebody to work on some ting I could fix or build. I do a lot my own car repairs and have built my own boat. I have purchased the parts over the past five months. And have purchase higher end parts then I probably need but will be nice for the future. I have assembly the computer but did not have much luck. Iím currently searching the forum for clues to the error of my ways. My system is;
- P6X58D-E - Motherboard
- Intel i7-930
- OCZ 3G1333LV6G DDR3
- Radeon HD 5670 1GB
- Sound Blaster X-FI Titanium Fatal1ty
- Western Digital 2TB Caviar Green
- Corsair TX 750 W
- Thermaltake V9 Blacx
So far I have found out I should be sticking to building boats and fixing cars. I tried to take my time and assemble it correctly and neatly. When I assembled everything I started it up and got to the BIOS and checked the settings. Then I made my first mistake as I set it to read the hard disc first. Then after a long struggle I found that I should set the DVD first. Then I tried to load windows 7 on the hard drive. This crashed after 10%. I figured this was because the hard drive was not formatted. After stumbling around in BIOS I thought I found a way to format the drive and did format c; /q. and I thought that did it. So I loaded on windows 7 again and got to over 90%, when it went CHKDSK/F. I think I hit enter and it came up BOOTMGR hit CTRL/ALT/DEL. I have not been able to get past this and even if I put the disc in it comes up as an error. It says:
- A problem has been detected and Windows has been shut down to prevent damage to your computer.
- If this is the first time youíve seen this stop error screen restart your computer. If this appears again, follow these steps.
- Disable or uninstall any Anti virus (none installed), disk defragmentation (did not get that far) or back up utilities. Check your hard drive configuration and check for dated drivers. Run CHKDSK /F to check for hard drive corruption and then restart your computer.

That was 4 days ago when I decided it would be best to start reading before I take another step. My feeling was I did not format the hard drive correctly and it has screwed it up! But that is just a wild guess. Any body have an idea what direction I should take?
The name Knottythots is the name of my boat!
