Question about Pioneer ECS P4VMM2 V3.2A P4(478)/FSB 533/VIA/SDRM+DDR/A&V&L/MATX Motherboard (MBEP4VMM22)
I recently reinstalled my computer and it worked perfectly well except that it took too long to copy thing to it extremely long file transfers from my external hard disk and removeable drives took hours where it took minutes so i got the usb 2 drivers of the ECS website and installed them the comp hung up during the install so i hard booted the computer and then it showed a black screen after that whenever i tried to boot
i took out my hard disk to see if there was some life in it and it showed the post bios screen and said that it did something sucessful and showed that there was no boot device phew some progress then i connected my hard disk back again and now it stuck on the pre bios screen it just hangs there even if i try to enter the bios quickly it hangs on the bios screen now i donno what to do? it is definetly due to the driver i installed how do i solve this
Disconnect the external drive from the PC. (It's possible windows registry is messed up).
It sound like your windows system is a bit confused as well. First try resetting the bios. See page 9 in your manual. (Don't forget to set it back to normal). This should allow you to get back into the bios. Go over each setting & adjust as needed.
Make sure your primary hard disk drive is listed in the boot order. Advanced Setup Page 30, in manual. If your windows operating system seem is a bit off (OS not installed correctly or driver software not installed correctly). The over-all function of the system can & will run slow. If your primary drive seem to also run slow, the FAT or MBR can be slightly corrupt which will also slow the drive down including file transfer & eventually the drive will cease to function. (The drive can be repaired by doing a full format through windows).
Do a fresh install of windows, including the full format, (Not a Quick format) on the primary drive. Even though ECS does include the USB 2.0 driver so does windows update service. If your windows was all ready updated & you re-installed ECS's (2003) USB driver, that may have been enough to screw up windows. If you have data on your current drive & need to get that data off & if you have access to another system you can pull your drive & slave it into another system & remove the data. There is no quick fix. Play it safe. Start from scratch. After windows has been installed & you install the ECS driver software, update windows until there are no updates left. I'm sure your system will regain its speed.
