Hi,

Appreciate the direct "Ask Me".

Whenever Microsoft Windows XP is installed on a system, the OS is binded to the motherboard, specifically to the chipsets. I am assuming that when you replaced the motherboard, the OS was not reinstalled and it was still binded to the original Dell Dimension board, most likely an Intel 925X Express chipset. When the OS started to load, it could not find the original 925X chipset and instead finds itself confronted with Biostar VIA P4M900/VT8237A chipsets which is an unknown, hence the BSOD.

You could try:

  • boot from CD drive with an XP installer and use the second repair option;
  • boot into Safe Mode (F8) and try to uninstall the Intel devices entries (except the CPU) and allow the system to auto detect (if it will) the new hardware;
  • backup your files and perform a fresh/clean install on the new motherboard.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

    Hi again,

    Glad to be of assistance and appreciate the rating.

    To your "F1" concern, pls go to the CMOS/BIOS setup and configure accordingly.

    If for some reason, you would rather not, a temporary/quick workaround is set the STOP/HALT on ERRORS to "No Errors" again inside the CMOS/BIOS.

    Cheers.

Dell dimension 3000 keyboard freezes up on bios options


I would try this, unplug the computer from the wall, reopen the case and you should see a small "watch" battery on the motherboard. This allows the computer to save the bois when there is no power. Pull the battery out, now before doing anything else; hold the power button in on the front of the computer for about 30 seconds. Let the computer set for a couple of hours (the bois at this point should be cleared, by I have seen were you have to leave the computer sit, so I added this). Put the battery back in the computer, turn it on and try to get into your bois setting. It accually should come up with an error to enter the bois because the date and time are way wrong.

Hope this works for you

I have no audio device on my optiplex 360 windows vista ive tried to download but everything fails


First check the BIOS. Look on integrated devices. Audio. make sure its enabled.

if BIOS is enabled and still no audio device from device manager.

Replace MOBO..

if audio goes to a Audio Card/ Expansion then replace card alone.

hope this helps.

The first thing that I would do is check the MoBo's website and find a RAM compatibilty chart. Make sure that you Mobo doesnt have any know issues with your particular RAM. You may also check the RAM's website and look for compatible RAM for your MOBO. Rule this out first. The Sata F6 thing depends on the MOBO I think that most of the time you do have to f6 the drivers however on my ASUS this was not necsessay. My cut at this would be to take everything out of your system except for the few components that it requires to boot up and load the OS. RAM, Video Card, CD ROM, maybe the Floppy. Reformat your HD so that you can start over clean. Make sure that you have each cable plugged into the mobo correctly as well as the component. Reformat, then reload the OS. Start to load the system drivers one at the time rebooting after each is loaded. Pay attention to what you did last if the problem shows up again. This will probably point you to the issue. If every thing installs correctly without any problems then start putting the other hardware in one piece at the time loading the drivers andsoftware for each component then rebooting and ruung some stress test before moving to the next component.

No video display


hello mr,carrera :) ...

i think u have only two choices u have to do :

1: you disconnect the power cable from you PSU , then reset the BIOS using the jumper pre-installed on your board , check the manual for this " Clear CMOS " ,,

then try again , if not then

2: u will have to replace your bios with an updated one of the exact motherboard model , you can do this easily cause Biostar have the socket of Bios ,not mounted in the motherboard ,,,

so, i am pretty sure that its a bios issue , like 95% ,,,,
the 5% u don't wanna know it ,,,,( Bad PSU might affected the power ct. of your Board :( ,,,, but try Bios 1st....

No Sound After Reinstall


Have you Reset you BIOS,because after you build a machine up,the Bios has to be set to Default,and were you grounded with a arm band when you put the parts together?,During the assembly it is paramount that you wear a grounded arm band so that your body electrical discharge does not interfere with the components,you probably have a hardware/software conflict.some thing in the BIOS is most likely left on.or set to hardware.

Will not POST with 2g of kingston hyperX ram inside


If you are going to call. The question I would ask (Very important), will the board run with CL2 = 2.5v & or CL3 = 2.6 to 2.65volt memory.
This site is Kingston memory setter. Type in the board & it show's the type of memory the board can use. (Click on this link). As you look at the link this is for you're P4M80-M4 board.
http://www.ec.kingston.com/ecom/configurator_new/modelsinfo.asp?SysID=33018&mfr=Biostar&model=P4M80&root=&LinkBack=&Sys=33018-Biostar-P4M80-M4+Motherboard&distributor=0&submit1=Search
This should help. I did not see a bios upgrade for this board that had anything to do with memory. The USA Biostar link is lacking opposed to the global link. The global manual give far more information (In depth), for bios instructions.
Global link: http://www.biostar.com.tw/app/en-us/mb/driver.php?S_ID=246

I'm sure the Kingston link will more than help you the_OCer.
Good luck!

Windows loads on every other boot.


Let's try running a memory test program. http://memtest.org/
Scroll down till you see the three screen shots. Just under them pick you're choice of bootable media to test you're memory.
Download - Pre-Compiled Bootable ISO (.zip)
or
Download - Pre-Compiled package for Floppy (DOS - Win)

Luck!

Sound card wont play root media files


Hi Hughdog
well, Biostar mobos are know for a lot issues, but depending too, on the OS, windows XP I presume, go on safe mode, and uninstall all audio drivers, and disable on the BIOS audio. then start the PC, and install the audio card. or if is a internal audio reenable again, redetec the drivers, and install them according to the CD and drivers. you should see the play device now and play music correctly.
good luck
