I have just finished building my new computer .I put the windows 2000 disc in it loads and when it says starting up windows it crashes.

I am using a ASUS A7V8X-X mobo and a Duron 1.8

I am at my wits end and considering upgrading to a Athlon XP 2700

Please help.

To me that sounds like a memory issue - possibly faulty memory.
If you've got some other that you could try, I'd give that a bash.

It's unlikely to be a problem with Win 2000 (IMHO) if it's falling over at that stage.

bad memory as shadow said or an overheating componet are all i can think of.

Well my CPU is running well over 50 centigrade
is that a hazard and if it is how do I solve it

if it is not a hazard would 128 RAM do the job
