|Computer turns off during windows boot, and install.|
I've swapped out RAM, i've done some tests on the HD, there was some bad sectors so I decided to swap drives with a BRAND new one same results. When I go to the windows install, it will format with the quick format, if you do the long format at around 10-20% the computer restarts. With quick format, you finally get the the install, the computer instantly turns off after about 1-2minutes.
I have checked the CPU, reseated the heatsink. It's running all bare bone MB,CDROM Drive, HD, no attached gfx cards. PS/2 keyboard
I've tried a lot of new parts I have around swapping them out testing them same results...even tried to go PATA see if it would do anything with that nothing...
I have a feeling it's the motherboard.
Mother board is a GIGABYTE MA74GM-S2
With an AMD Athlon II
RAM that is in it is a SUPER TALENT DDR2-800 PC6400 2GB
WINDOWS XP SORRY FORGOT TO CHANGE IT
