Is there anybody who knows anything about problems having the Athlon 1800+ processor to work with a Soltek SL-75MRN-L motherboard ?

If I try to install Windows 2k or XP it all starts OK by reading a lot of drivers to the memory. After reading the NTFS-driver and starting windows the sreen gets black, the curser is blinking in the upper left corner, but after a shjort moment the CD-drive stops running and nothing more happens ??

I have upgraded bios to the newest - without any success....

Does anybody know something that can help me ?

The setup is
Soltek SL-75MRN-L motherboard
AMD Athlon 1800? processor
DDR266 pc3200 512 Mb ram
80 GB Harddisk

Thanks in advance

Possibilities:

1) faulty IDE cable corrupting data transfer from CDROM or to hard drive
2) faulty ram module ( you can use http://www.memtest.org/' ">http://www.memtest.org/ to check)

you may like to check how hot the CPU is running, in the bios.

I once had a broken IDE cable, and everything worked perfectly except one CD
