Built an Athlon 64 3000, Gigabyte GA-K8VT800M Mobo, 120Gb Maxtor IDE HDD. 1024MB DDR400.
Loading XP home and after it loads & reboots you get this message during the Installing Windows bit.

" The software you are installing
BATTERY has not passed logo testing etc

Normally I would ignore it and get on with the install. but, I have never seen this type of message during XP installation, only with drivers and programs.

Any Advice, the message is stuck on my screen as I speak.

I don't think it matters whether you say yes or no. I would say yes.

By the way, I seem to remember your last upgrade was the XP 2500+ (and an Asus mobo) which was quite recent. Or is this a completely new computer?

Or have I mixed you up with somebody else?

That is the message and yes this is a totally different machine I am making up with a mate.

Selected yes and got a BSOD with a memory dump.

Have swapped round the RAM and am reloading XP

will post back as to sussess

Changed the RAm and still the blue screen of death

Am putting a 256 mb stick of top quality ddr400 and will see if this works
also have used a different xp disk in case it was faulty, and a different CD reader No change.

Its beginning to look like the Mobo. CPU or Hard drive

It was the RAM

Obviously very RAM sensitive
