Hmm, I haven't screwed around with computers for a while. Is the Sempron the new budget processor? I told myself I'd just keep it cheap to get this running, and If I was gonna upgrade I'd probably wanna just take it up to 939.
Its one of. I bought one of those combos not too long ago as all I needed for a 2nd pc was a cpu/board. Its socket 754 and agp but the 3100 sempron runs stock at 1.8ghz and on that board I was able to get it to 2.25 ghz using a stock hsf from amd.
If you just need something to hold you over till you can afford a 939 board, pci express vid card it might work.
What speed ram do you have? They also have a 1gb corsair value ram pc3200 for $69.

This is really strange. Looks like I might not need anything to fix it after all. I took the drive out and formatted it in my external enclosure and XP setup seemed to like that alot because It's installing now.
