Windowx xp pro will not boot after seeing window logo. It shows a black sceen with the mouse cursor. I took out the battery from the A7V-ML motherboard for 2 hours

Test your PSU or replace it if your power supply units fan is not working your PSU is faulty

One bad lead can cause a computer to continue on a cycle or to shutdown or fail to detect/ boot up a computer hard drive

Test all leads that attach to your hard drive including electrical extensions,IDE,SATA

the leads from your ((motherboard to your hard drive)) make sure they have a secure connection and are not faulty or just replace them there probably old and faulty
make sure all leads that are attached to your drives dvd\cd 3 1/2 inch floppy have secure connections and are not faulty even the electrical extensions or just replace them they are probably old and faulty a computer needs its connections to have an end so any faulty leads will end up with a computer error

hope this helps

Mother board is ak77 pro 133 vt8233 will not run xp proI

The BSOD (blue screen of death) usually means that a computer component has failed. This could be a hard disc drive, a memory module, the cpu, or the motherboard. I would start by checking out the hard drive first. See if it is spinning and not making any clicking sounds. Try replacing it if you have another one. Then check memory and cpu. Some people actually like having an old computer hanging around. They install Windows 98 in it so they can play old dos games and games that don't require a blazing fast processor! Good luck...Hank

Will not run xp pro i'm stuck in 2000 mode mother board is ak77 pro 133 vt8233 will not run xp pro i've been told im pretty much sol. Is this true?

If you have a valid Win XP Pro CD and want to install the operating system you'll need to format your hard disk drive. If you have allot of data on you're hard disk drive, (In Win 2000) Suggest you create a second partition within the free space of you're hdd and install windows XP Pro. Boot you're system with the XP CD. Pay close attention to the display screens. Follow the instructions for creating a second partition.
Format the new partition. (Quick). Install windows XP on the new partition. Once completed you can copy your personal data to win XP.
If you choose to keep the win 2000 partition and you do not wish to have a dual boot system than remove/delete the root files from the 2000 partition. These files; Autoexec.bat and Boot.ini. You're new XP Boot.ini should read like this;
[boot loader]
[operating systems]
multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINDOWS="Microsoft Windows XP Professional" /noexecute=optin /fastdetect /usepmtimer
Once you're satisfied an no longer need win 2000 use windows diskmgmt.msc from the run command to delete the win 2000 partition.
Win 2000 uses a FAT16 where Win XP uses the FAT NTFS.

Windows will not turn computer off. I have unpluged every thing and all fans but the hard drive. I get 0.01 dcv when the computer is running and the same when I try to have windows turn the computer off....


This usually happens if Windows is having trouble closing a program. The easiest way to avoid the problem is to close all programs before you close Windows.

If that does not help, you need to track down which program is causing the problem.

If you are running Windows 95, remove all shortcuts from your StartUp folder.

If you are working with 98/ME/XP, uncheck all the programs listed in StartUp in the System Configuration Utility (you get to the utility by opening Start/Run and typing "msconfig" without the quotes in the Run box and then clicking on OK).

Shut down the PC. Reboot. Shut down again.

Then add one program back, shut down, reboot and shut down again.

If Windows shuts down as it should, add a program back to StartUp and repeat the shutdown, reboot, shutdown routine. Do that until you have pinpointed the errant program and reinstall it. If you are running a screen saver, consider it also to be a prime suspect.

Your Advanced Power Management, or APM, utility has decided to take leave of its senses.

Disable it, both in your BIOS file and in Windows.

That little sound riff that accompanies the shutdown is hitting a sour note.

Go to Control Panel and click on the Sounds icon to open the Property dialog box.

Scroll down in the Events box until you see Exit Windows. Change the sound settings to None.

Your TEMP folders are bulging at the seams.

If the C:\Windows\TEMP folder gets overloaded, all sorts of bizarre events can ensue. Clean it out. While you are at it, clean out your Temporary Internet Files folder as well.

Updating XP with the latest Service Pack may also cure the shutdown failure.

However, it is also possible that Advanced Power Management, or APM, is getting in the way of the shutdown routine.

APM may not be enabled in your XP configurations, but it may be turned on in your BIOS, a memory-resident program that controls how your PC sets itself up.

Microsoft recommends that you go to the Control Panel, click on “Performance and Maintenance,” and choose Power Options.

Click on the APM tab and click on Enable Advanced Power Management Support.

Personally, I don’t like automatic power management on desktops because it can cause all sorts of bizarre behavior. I would leave Advanced Power Management disabled in Windows and turn it off in the BIOS.

Consult your PCs manual to determine how to enter BIOS’ Setup file. Sometimes, as the PC boots, you can see a message on the screen that tells you which key to press to enter Setup. Press it before the screen welcoming you to Windows appears.

Once in Setup, look through the various sections until you find the option for controlling power management. Choose to turn it off.

For guidance on other XP shutdown problems, consult article 308029 in the Microsoft Knowledge Base. Use the article number as a search term at the support site below. Good information is also available at the site.

I can't install Windows XP

Motherboards are designed for an operating system, so after time they are not designed to run new versions. If you check the website of the mfg of your motherboard you will see what is the newest version of windows can run on it. It mostly due to the mfg and the drivers designed for the OS.

Take the sound hardware, if the mfg does not make a driver for xp,then even if windows does install
some of the hardware might not have a driver.

With the prices being at there lowest, look at a new or rebuilt system.

Hi john,
The issue what operating system are you running? Not your board).
Windows 98 can see a max of 64GB & windows 98SE, 137GB. Win XP can see a max of 2 exobytes.
(What is 1exobyte, EB. In decimal terms, an exabyte is a billion gigabytes).

Your 160BG drive is safe with XP.
