PC goes black on screen when installing windows xp with SP2 included . Takes windows xp without a problem but, when I install the SP2 cd it goes black.
conclusion SP2 has some sort of conflict with the pc.
gigabyte board ,pen. 4 3ghz, 128 nvidia videocard.

MIght be a video driver conflict. Or it could be BIOS related. Check your manufacturer for both items for updates.
Did you try booting into safemode with SP2 installed?
