Question about MSI 915P Combo-FR Motherboard
Hi There, I know there was a similar problem to this one posted just the other day, but this does seem stranger. When I put my system together (it's a P4 3.2ghz, Video card is a Nvidia 7600GT, memory is 1gb PC3200 DDR, 260gb SATA HDD). It booted fine to the boot options screen asking me to go into safe mode etc. Probably because it was not a fresh XP installation for the new machine. Anyway I went into the BIOS and the only option I changed was to select the fail-safe settings. Now when I goto boot the machine it hangs just after the memory test and I cannot access the BIOS, my hardware seems to be fine as I have a display, it shows my CPU as correct and the memory as ok, I have tried resetting the CMOS with and without the battery in and changed the jumper even for over three hours but to no avail, I have tried MSI Tech support they were no help. So I was wondering if anyone can shed any light on this for me Thanks very much John
Unplug the harddrive data cable,take out any cards that are plugged in, (ie., sound card, tv card, modem, etc..) and turn on the pc and see if you can get into the BIOS. If you can, go through your BIOS settings one by one and save settings. Plug the HDD back in and turn on the PC. Don,t insert the cards just yet. If it boots to windows your on your way.
