My task is to put together parts that a friend bought after his many failed attempts: Intel D845WN mobo p4 1.7ghz 128mb ram generic ati all in wonder 9700 pro 128mb 70gb Maxtor Ricoh DVD/CDR drive Sony cd\rw All the parts went together fine. Tried to install Win XP home and keeps giving me error about files not being able to be copied to hd from cd. CD works fine in other systems. Checked out CD drives and someone pushed some of the pins on the connector in. So i had to resolder those. Tried again and still same problem. Anyone think the mobo might have gotten screwed up? This is the second mobo this guy has gotten. the first one was messed up when he first got it.
