Question about MSI K9MM-V Motherboard
I have an MSI K9MM-V Class motherboard. Recently, the pc would freeze on startup. I'm trying to reinstal windows but it keeps freezing before setup even starts. I've tried other hard drives and get the same problem. The motherboard is only a few months old, but I've always had some sort of intermittent freezing problem. The latest trouble started after I slaved a SATA Drive, and it crashed totally..
(IDE Hard Drives are what I'm trying to instal windows on)
AMD Sempron 2ghtz Processor
1gb Kingston DDR2 Ram
80gb Samsung HDD (IDE)
No Graphics or sound cards
I think this problem is related to motherboard. Try upgading the bios. If that does'nt solve the problem then replace the motherboard

Freezing of computers occur mostly due to shortage of RAM. But in ur case, 1GB is quite enough for XP. Since ur computer is freezing b4 even starting up, thus it could be a problem of disk drives.check if more than 1 drive have been alloted MASTER (Primary) or otherwise same priority. If u have more than 1 HDD, then the one in which the Opering System is installed should be given the Master Primary and the other as Cable select/slave. Likewise do it for the CD/DVD ROM or RAM (the CD/DVD RAM should be alloted the master and ROM as the slave). It can be done by the JUMPERs on the back of the Drives. See the exact setup on the drive surface.
