Just put together what I thought was a simple PC. Matsonic mobo with onboard\ngraphics/ sound. Plumbed in an Athlon 1400 XP, fan, old CD Rom drive, HDD\nand FDD and 256 of ram.\n\nFired up no probs. Installed XP no probs.\n\nJob done or so I thought. I have tried to install Norton AV and before the\ninstall has finished obtained all manner of Norton Error messages re missing\ndlls etc. Tried to install Word from Ofice XP and whilst eventually I got a\ncomplete and succesful install, eveytime I open Word I get the old 'error -\nsend report to MS. Both these progs have also resulted in a BSOD when\ninstalling.\n\nI have succesfully installed Norton Systemworks 02 - just to see if this\ncould find errors. This installed ok but hasn't cured the problem. NTL\nBroadband also installed ok.\n\nI can't see how windows can be corrupted, but thought maybe the BIOS may\nneed an update.\n\nTheres not much hardware to go wrong and the system generally is stable\napart from these 2 programmes. Any ideas where to start looking?
