MSI 880 GMA-45 Windows installation issues
« on: 02-June-11, 18:21:56 »

Just built a system around the aforementioned motherboard.Other components include :

CPU : Phenom II X4 955
RAM : Corsair XMS3  , 2X2GB , 1333 ( Corsair's site states they're compatible with all Amd and Intel  platforms)
VGA : Twintech  GTX 550 Ti
PSU : Corsair  Gaming GS 600

The issue : While the system seems to boot up fine, i couldn't install any operating system , from XP up to 7 .As soon as it would boot up from the installation cd, it'd either throw a blue screen with  the irq less or equal error message, or a black screen with the letter "H" in a straight  column (weird as it may sound, that's what i got).Moreover , it wouldn't boot up  to the previous window installation.

After trying this and that, i swapped out the 550Ti  with my older 8400 GS ; same issues.Tried the same without any gfx card on, it would boot from the previous installation, and proceed to windows install .

Is there a setting in my  BIOS i am unaware of, or do i have  to  RMA the board ?

Thanks in advance :)

Indeed  it was a faulty memory stick, ran  memtest which came up with errors, swapped one stick out and everything went back to normal.Thanks for your aid :)
