it shows the win xp loading screen for a second then a blue screen appears and the computer reboots. what is going on??

i just put my new rig together:

amd 3000+
1gig coraisr value select ram
MSI x800 video card

could it possibly be all the fans and lights that i plugged in from the case?? i dont think that would cause a blue screen though would it?? i tried moving the ram around and even tried using just one stick, still that blue screen. i unplugged everything except for my one hard drive, still nothing.

edit: neo 4 platinum board... must i install any drivers for my hard drives?? but icant get to the desktop!

Sir, assemble your system back to the way you had it the first time. Turn it on and see if it starts to P.O.S.T If it does go into the Setup (BIOUS). Make sure that the BIOUS sees your drives, Continue to the Boot Sequence, Besure the first device is your CD and the second your hard drive.

Then start your installation. If you get a clear blue screen, give the system some time, it might take five or six minutes or more.

If it's a new build fresh out of the boxes and if you have 2 sticks of ram you should use only one for the initial startup. That was a good choice.

Make sure you installed the processor correctly. One cd or dvd rom, floppy drive if you have one and make sure the power supply can handle the video card and all the other peripherals you have installed.
BTW - What power supply and hard drive are you using?
