I have a Aopen AX77-8XN mobo and I upgraded my cpu from an XP1800 to an X220. Now my computer won't boot past the windows set up screen? I know I have the latest bios... does anybody have any solutions?
Hello Roger, I was running Vista I've done a clean install and gone back to XP (good excuse to finally get it done.
System Specs: 1 gig of ram running at 333mhz ATI Saphire X1550 Sound Blaster Audigy Platinum 2 Hard drives one is 160 gig the other 80 Lastest Bios
I reset the bios by removing the battery, I also tried shorting the jumper which also didn't work.
When I had vista installed, my computer kept going to the screen where I had the option of choosing safe mode or start windows normally. I also restarted my computer making my DVD drive the first boot device I couldn't get the repair option screen. Once I put my old CPU back in everything worked fine.
With my old CPU in, I formatted my drive... (with my XP disc) once again making the DVD rom the first boot device. Once I got the windows is starting screen, my computer would just freeze.
Once again I installed my old CPU and my computer booted and windows XP wants to install fine.

Having a 32-bit or 64-bit operating system mainly depends upon the operating system that is loaded on your primary hard drive (generally drive C:). However, your motherboard's components, i.e., processor and amount of system RAM, will be a major factor in determining whether you can only run a 32-bit operating system, or upgrade to a 64-bit system.
I have upgraded cpu in the past, its a solution that is limited as you prob cant upgrade it again, newer motherboards support newer cpu, Maybe look for a cpu mobo combo to buy them both, Depends how much you can afford.dont forget if its an older mobo, it prob takes the slower memory, todays is faster. will your old mobo support newer graphics cards if you play games ??
don't upgrade the bios unless it is necessary. as you have just installed that board... recheck all the connections to the board. when you say it doesn't boot up... do you mean the computer doesn't power up or it does not get past the boot screen... if it does get to the boot screen what error do you get after that ?
what socket is the Pentium 3? Socket A. The sockets have to be compatible for example you can't upgrade a Dual Core for a Core 2 Duo because although the chipsets look the same the motherboard may not support the new instruction set. I had this problem recently as i wanted to upgrade my Intel Celeron D 3.02ghz to the Pentium Dual Core 1.8ghz and although the chips were identical and fitted perfectly in my mobo, the actual mobo i was using (foxconn) wouldnt work with it forcing me to buy an ASRock mobo and replace the entire system.
have you checked your video (built-in or card) or your monitor sir?...does your mobo sir supports 2800 processors?i guess your mobo failed after doing so (upgrading from 1900-2800)...try to check it sir...hope this will help...
hi dale, itsnot a good thing when you see the blue screen of death, cause recent changes hardware normaly maybeif you have changed from intel to amd using mobo and all parts are amd now , maybe if you reinstalled your operating system the new hardware that is installed will accept you software cheers steve good luck
