I should note that before this system was set up I was running a DDR2 system with an AMD dual core CPU socket AM2.
So my problem is that when the system boots my mobo sometimes gives errors. After a bit of time (about 1 min) it reboots and will give a different device error or no error. When trying to install windows 8 (7 seems broken after swapping the CPU, Mobo and ram) it freezes during install. Was looking around in bios and the system froze in there as well. I've tried using my friends 470GTX (we traded cards). Still had the same problem (he had none with my card). Tried with only one stick of RAM, still froze. Tried with other stick and got the same problem. Have not tried with my friends RAM yet. Will do so later. Any input you guys could give would be greatly appreciated as I just want my computer back.
