    This is the start-up screen directly after a fresh install of windows 7 . . .

    Anybody seen this screen before . . . Looks like a virus, but how could it be ?

    I'm thinking this computer is just too old (5 years) . . . I'm loading XP back on it right now !

    Actually, it makes perfect sense. If you read the code, it is telling you that your computer is too old for Windows 7 and you should put XP back on before it explodes!! :ROFLMAO:

    Check your cable to your monitor and make sure the connection isn't loose.

    Picture was fine during the entire install . . . Putting XP back on it, it's the kids computer.

    I'll save the 7 disc for another computer !

    It looks a whole lot like what you'd get on the television screen when you pulled a Nintendo cartridge out before you turned the machine off.

    Before you try again on a different computer, I'm pretty sure you can go to Microsoft's website (while you're in XP), and download a little app that will check your computer to see if it is able to install Windows 7. Another FYI... after you install Windows 7, if your hardware is compatible, you can download a free app that let's you run a virtual Windows XP on Windows 7 if you were having issues running any older XP apps on 7. :thumb:

    It was indeed not compatible with Windows 7 . . . It was just too damn old and cheap *** !

    A Compaq Presario 1650 or some crap like that . . . it has XP back on it and all is right with the planet once again.

    The kid will be happy . . . !

    that's a driver related error. Or a motherboard hardware error.

    Since it started with 7 I would think that there is a driver error for your chipset or another motherboard based firmware.
