Question about EPoX EP-8K9A Motherboard

1 Answer

HURRAH! Used a PS2 keyboard, booted from disk and installed XP... however... we have a 120GB harddrive in there but on c:\ it's only showing 57gb.... I thought it was weird when it was doing the partioning thing when it was setting up xp... it did say that but it did recognise a total of 120gb... how can I make the rest available? Also, I can't get on the internet... I thought it was only a matter of pluggin in the rj45 and then thats it... but perhaps not... the cable modem is connected to the netgear router and the computers are connected via cable.... thought it'd be simple... but apparently not... please can you help?

With regards to the space issue, check what is showing in Computer Management > Storage > Disk Management. This is available via the Administrator tools (either in the control panel, or if you've enabled it, on the start menu). In DM, you should see "Disk 0", this is your primary drive. Aslong as the drive shows the full 120GB, there's not a problem. If however, it's only showing part of it, you can expand it to the full size from the disk manager. With regards to the internet issue, is the machine detecting the network card? If so, is it being assigned an IP address? If it's not showing the card under "Network Connections" (Control Panel), then you'll need to obtain the drivers for the card before you can use it. If the drivers are there, you'll need to ensure it's being assigned an IP address, or has one statically assigned.

Asus a8n-e m/b gets power, will not post


Hello from here you can download a manual and drivers:

http://www.asus.com/Motherboards/AMD_Socket_939/A8NE/#download

My guees is that the windows disk is damaged or burned to fast.

Since you not get any picture on screen now the graphic card. maybe malfunctioning try to change that and see what happens.

A ps2 keyboard and mouse must be used.
Because the usb function will not work until the system is fully installed.

A restore disk does not contains a full windows its only for repair
purpose.

Good luck

Problem booting into xp home edition on laptop!


Hi Andrew,

Before you install XP check the memory, harddrive, cddrive is getting detected in CMOS or not. What about the data in your harddrive?
connect the harddrive to another PC and copy the Data from the drive. If not you will lose all the data on the harddisk if you install the XP on the same disk.

If you had mentioned the system configuration, i would have told whether you can install XP or Not. Since its a laptop and just 5 years old i guess you can install XP on that.

  2. Start your computer from the Windows XP CD. To do this, insert the Windows XP CD into your CD drive or DVD drive, and then restart your computer.

    Note To boot from your Windows XP CD, the BIOS settings on your computer must be configured to do this.

System recovery disk used and not key board does not work


For that matter, when reinstalling your windows xp, you have to Delete the partition and format it. Sometimes when your system has viruses and if you just recover or repairing it using your OS installer won't work out because it cannot delete the virus. So you really have to delete the partition and reformat it again. When done, install updated full version antiviruses like avg 8 or avast. They really protect your computer. 

Best regards

Swaping hdd


You have half a dozen reasons why this will not work. The Operating system (XP) does not recognise the different hardware, the Bios doesn't recognise the MBR (the file structure of the harddrive) and you have all the wrong hardware drivers installed.
There is a way to do this if you have the original XP installation disk, install the harddrive, put the XP installation disk in the CD/DVD drive and set the machine to boot from the CD/DVD first. When the machine boots up and goes to install XP follow the instructions as if you are doing a fresh install, when SetUp attempts to format the harddrive it will discover you already have a version of XP installed and will give you the option to repair it, go ahead with the repair and MAYBE SetUp will be able to see and install the correct hardware drivers. If not you are looking at Slaving the harddrive, saving your personal files and then formatting the harddrive and reinstalling XP fresh.
