Re: cant install os

50c is too high. Anyway, either you have a problem with your memory, cd drive, or hdd.

    Windows loads on every other boot.

    Let's try running a memory test program.
    Scroll down till you see the three screen shots. Just under them pick you're choice of bootable media to test you're memory.
    Download - Pre-Compiled Bootable ISO (.zip)
    Download - Pre-Compiled package for Floppy (DOS - Win)

    Problem with DDR

    If the memory is good (test it on another comp. ) it may be possible that the motherboard does not support that type of memory (happens !! ), or it supports that quantity of memory only on one slot . U must get the motherboard;s manual and read there if they are any particularities..... (sometimes , very rarely, there are BIOS settings ...that may interfere ... )

    How to turn off on board graphics card

    get into the bios of your computer. (look it up on the internet if you don't know how) search around, there should be a setting in there for onboard graphics. most likely in a "devices" or "advanced devices". this is just off memory but keep searching and don't play around with other settings. ^^

    Upgrading power supply

    The next time you get a PSU. Tell them what you have. Apparently you got one that is not compatible with your compaq.The power (500 wattage) will work with your MB.
    Get an OEM PSU from Compaq(HP).
