Question about ASUS P4S800-MX Motherboard

Pause at bios/ XP welcome screen P4S800-MX

I recently installed a 1GB stick of RAM and a new WD HDD into a friends old computer (with the p4s800-mx). At my house everything worked out great. Got it all going right away, but when i gave it to him and he took it home he said the next morning it was not working right. I took a look at it and I'm not too sure where to start.

Problem: When I press the power button the system turns on and shows bios screen, as usual, but it pauses for about 45 sec. - 5 min. before finally going through the PnP detection and showing the usual: Primary master HDD : xxxx , etc, etc.. it then promptly shows the XP logo where it loads a few seconds. Instead of showing the welcome screen it sits for another 30 seconds- 2 minutes of black screen before starting. To add to this it takes an exceptionally long time to load to the desktop once a user is selected. Yet after all this it runs perfectly through his kids games, streaming video, and even under stress tests and benchmarks such as OCCT, Prime95, and 3DMark06.

Any help would be appreciated.

If you want to upgrade you're CPU here is the Asus link for supported CPU's P4S800-MX motherboard.

To the right of the list is the bios file that must be used to support the CPU.

No booting


The problem is Operating systems are co-dependent on hardware.
If the motherboards, processors, ram, video adapters, etc don't match you would not be able to swap hard drives and expect to boot.

You could try pressing F8 on boot and try to access safemode.

If it does boot into safemode immediately it will want to reactivate windows.(because of all the hardware changes.

If it still can't boot, you may want to put the 80 gig in as slave to the 40gig and ghost the 40 gg hard drive over to the 80.

If you don't want to lose your data on the 80 gig then reboot with an xppro cd and reinstall windows in the same partition overlaying the installation on top of existing windows directory.

the new windows will have to be activated but all data will still be there.

Bios update


make sure your bios is an eprom. people download bios upgrades only to find their bios is not a flash bios. that is it doesn't have the infrared source to physically "flash" the chip.
