Reboots every 30 seconds or so

Don't understand this. BIOS set to fault. Even with a freshly formatted HD and Windows XP CD in place the board reboots after about 30 seconds. Help!

    Turned out that replacing the power unit made the problem go away!

Hi, there is your CPU a 1400mhz athlon (NOT athlon xp) or lower?, it just so happens that i have the same motherboard, and i tried an AMD athlon 1200mhz on it and when you go to install windows xp, or try to boot windows up it just reboots, like it doesn't like you!, well if you are in the same boat, which i think you are then you need to immediately remove the cpu and stop playing with it, because the 1200mhz i had on it fried itself after about 20 tries!, But There is a solution, an amd athlon xp 1800+ works just peachy so anything above or maybe slightly lower will work!, currently on Trademe there is a number of amd athlon 1800+ cpus for sale, follow this link, # http://www.trademe.co.nz/Computers/Components/CPUs/AMD/auction-182065118.htm# excluding the hashes, i hope this helps.

ASUS EeePc 1015PEM reboots at windows startup. even with new hdd and fresh install. ok when in bios screen or if i boot into linyx


Which windows OS are you using? windows xp, 7 or 8?
Anyway the problem might be corrupted installation CD. If you install windows on other computer using this CD, so if CD is OK, then
start your laptop and press F8 repeatedly until Windows Advanced Boot Options appears. Then choose automatic restart on system failure. This option will allow you to see Blue Screen Of Death and to understand what causes a problem.

All you've got to do is:

1) Insert the new hard drive.
2) Press the F8 key as the laptop boots. This will take you into the BIOS.
3) Locate the disk drive priority setting in the bios.
4) Set Priority 1 to your CD/DVD drive and priority 2 to the 320GB hard drive.
5) Save settings and exit the BIOS. This should reboot your laptop.
6) Insert the Windows XP CD.
7) It should not start the setup as it recognises the CD.
8) I will recommend that you format the drive before you install, go along with the format (make sure it does a full format).
9) After the format it will reboot your system.
10) You will be prompted with a message like "Press any key to boot form CD", DON'T press anything otherwise it will start all over again.
11) Now it should start the install. Follow the on-screen instructions.

How do i erase windows 95 and replace it with windows 98?


you get a copy of windows 98, pop in the disc, click upgrade (or fresh install if you don't wanna keep anything), and let her install. About 45 minutes after it reboots you should check on it because it has a dialog box for you then.

The windows XP pro cd has the tools you need
DO NOT FLASH THE BIOS
DO NOT ERASE THE HARD DRIVE
sometimes when the hard drives are erased and they are SATA the bios won't recognize a RAW SATA drive.
  1. enter the setup utility and configure the BIOS Boot order to boot from CD/DVD
  2. insert Win XPPRO CD
  3. apply settings and save and exit
  4. reboots automatically
  5. press any key when prompted
  6. select the install
  7. select the primary partition you want and delete that partition.
  8. confirm you want to delete it,
  9. quick format to ntfs.
  10. once formated the loading of the OS is auto
