Question about Intel Motherboard
28th May 2008
Dear Mr. Mellomania,
Thanks for a prompt reply and nice interactions.
As recommended by you I have reformated the C drive of hard disc and started loading Window Xp professional service pack-2. After copying all files when window installation was in progress following message appeared and Comp shut down :
"A problem has been detected & window has been shutdown to prevent damage to your computer.
If this is the first time you have seen this stop error screen, restart your computer, if this screen appears again follow these steps
Check to make sure any new hardware or software is properly installed. If this is a new installation ask your hardware or software wanufacturer for any windows update you might need.
If the problem continue disable or remove any new install hardware or software disable BIOS memory options such as caching or shadowing. If you need to use safe mode to remove or disable component restart your computer, press F-8 to select advanced startup option and then select safe mode.
*** stop: 0X0000000A (0X408CE160, 0X00000002, 0X00000000, 0X80818652)"
Following are the difference in the message on monitor on 26th and 27th May 2008
On 26th May before formate :
and after reformate on 27th May 2008 the message displayed was :
Kindly give me further advise

Usually when installation of windows fails is from more than one reason and lets hope that ur hard drive is not damaged (contains bad sectors).
try these steps :
1- use a different windows cd and a different cd rom if u can find one.
2- change the sequense of drives by changing their jumper positions and data cables ( master, slave)
3- try to clear cmos with the jumper located usually near the mainboards battery (short it for 3 seconds)
4- try ( low-level format) to ur hard drive and reinstall windows.
if the message is still seen then your hard drive could be seriously damaged.
