Re: can't get past the post

Have you set the boot sequence in the bios to cdrom first. You are installing from a winxp cd right? Also, when it past the post and starts reading the cd it will ask you to press any key to boot from cd, if you do not press any key in a matter of seconds it will search for another boot device. Since you don't have any other operable boot device, it will not boot up. If you still have problems, please let me know

My msi 845 MAX board don't work .the power supply is good .all components seem normal , the system don't boot. I can't hear any beep sound from motherboard. I think the BIOS can I reset my...

Clear ram should be on the bord right by the pins. I doubt your bios crashed ,just plug in the monitor ,the hard drive and the board and see what happens . Make sure evrything is plugged in right ,very important. Did the board work before and when did it stop working ,what did you do to last just before it stpped working? Is your cpu seated correctly? No bent pins I hope check the foil on back of the board to see if all traces look good. Computers are pretty rugged your probably doing somesomething wrong

Can't boot, stops right after mem test but before access to setup suspect BIOS chip It's in PLCC socket, need replacement for test thanks

does the post give a audio code before the boot stops..? the plcc chip can be purchased from the manufacturer if they are still available. Does the post stop after the mem test or during..? if during, try replacing or refitting the ram sticks. You could even remove the ram sticks and see if the post continues or if you receive a beep code.if you get a beep code, go to manufacturers website for beep code info. Have you tried to reset the bios. most boards can recover from a bios failure, the boards manual will tell you how to do this if the board supports it. If the plcc has failed, replacing the board may be cheaper and free of hassles. Replacing the plcc is a pain as you must get the correct bios installed. Are you getting the video bios details on the screen ? if no, try another video card. If you are using an on board video chip, try a video expansion card, either AGP or PCIE type, whichever the board supports. If the board only has PCI or AGP, replace the board as it will not have the features for modern software and you will probably not be able to replace the plcc.

Hello. I'm portuguese and i have an abit fatality an8 soket 939 and i have a problem with the motherbord. She stop in the error "9.0" " AWARD BIOS TAKE OVER BOOTING JOB". What i have to do? What are my...

This seems to be a common problem with this board. That error could mean any number of things from a loose cable to a fried chip. Flashing bios will not get rid of the problem.

Take a look at this article.

Good luck,

Can't get past bios post

If you can't even pass the POST your only option is attempt to flash the BIOS. Go to your motherboard manufacturer's website to find updated BIOS and instructions for your particular board.

Proper jumper & BIOS settings for XFX 750aSLI nForce motherboard

You will have to access the BIOS and disable the onboard graphics from there. Before you install your new card, boot the computer. As it is performing the POST, enter the BIOS (usually delete or F2 gets you in.) Once you have disabled the on board graphics, save your settings and exit. Then install your new card and attempt to boot the computer. If it will not boot, locate the CMOS jumper and activate it to reset back to default settings.

Cannot access the BIOS

welcome to fixya

when you first turn on the computer hold down F2 for a few secounds this should take you to bios screen and as for the new video card i hope you got a new power supply to no lower then 500w power supply with that video card if not bigger

i do not think the ps2 keyboard should be a problem....

hope this helps you out have a good day :)

Freeze after post

intel boards wont start the os after they finish post if the memory or cpu are running at the wrong speed or voltage. SInce most boards nowadays are auto sensing you may have the wrong memory/cpu combo. Also you may have zapped any of the components if they were not installed in an ESD (electro static discharge) environment.
