To get into the Windows 2000 / XP Safe mode, as the computer is booting press and hold your "F8 Key" which should bring up the "Windows Advanced Options Menu" as shown below. Use your arrow keys to move to "Safe Mode" and press your Enter key.
Note: With some computers if you press and hold a key as the computer is booting you will get a stuck key message. If this occurs, instead of pressing and holding the "F8 key", tap the "F8 key" continuously until you get the startup menu.
Trouble Getting into Windows 2000 or Windows XP Safe mode - If after several attempts you are unable to get into Windows 2000 or Windows XP Safe Mode as the computer is booting into Windows, turn off your computer. When the computer is turned on the next time Windows should notice that the computer did not successfully boot and give you the Safe Mode screen.

I would suggest that you run only one stick of Ram at a time to determine if they are the problem.. Also these CPU's had heat problems that damaged the cpu. This also causes freezing. I would consider resetting the CPU and the heat sink, and case fans are clean and working.

Hi,

I see you are having issues with drivers for your Audio on your BIOSTAR motherboard.

See this link for the Drivers, make sure you select the one specific to the windows installed on your system.

If you already tried that try VINYL Audio Driver - Link

DRIVER possible

LINK1 - Alternative

I hope this will help.

I recently bought a used Asus a7n8x mobo so I can rebuild my dead xp Pro 462 A Socket system. I am upgrading the mobo to the "delux = A7V8X-E" board and replacing my 2400 athlonxp cpu with a used 3200...


You dont need the drivers untill after windows has been installed....However... If windows does not pick your network adapter up, you will need to load these before you can get online.
Download all the drivers for the motherboard and just Burn them onto a cd as a data disc, so you have them ready

I recently bought a used Asus a7n8x mobo so I can rebuild my dead XP Pro 462 A Socket system. I am upgrading the mobo to the "Delux = A7V8X-E" board and replacing my 2400 AthlonXP CPU with a used 3200...


Excellent motherboard. I've owned two of them, best socket A motherboard ever. Nvidia nforce chipset, soundstorm audio. You can definitely burn the drivers to a disk or pen drive for installation after you've reinstalled windows. Windows xp may even have drivers that will work for the network card. So you may just be able to go to asus's website with that system and install directly to the system. You will know if the network card is working when xp asks to activate, try to activate and it will tell you if you have a network connection or not. I would burn all the drivers and software to a disk though just in case. Downloading the drivers and saving them on a CD is easy. Just download and save the drivers/software to your "my documents folder" when downloading from asus. Then open my computer double click on the cdrw drive or dvdrw drive whichever one you have and drag the files from your documents to the cdrw//dvdrw window. Once you've done this you will see at the top of the window "files ready to be written to cd". At the top in the left column in window you will see "write files to cd". Insert a blank cd-r or cd-rw and click write files to cd. That's it once its finished you can use the cd to install the software. If you have any trouble or questions reply to this and I will be glad to help you. I miss my A7N8X-E I sold mine to my friend 5 years ago and its still running strong and I used it for 2 years before him.

M7vig 400 pro verison 1.0 what kind of audio & video drives can i use?


You can download drivers from Biostar here. (This is the page for M7VIG 400. The page for M7VIG PRO lists the same drivers.) They list which operating systems are supported for each device.

I see your question asks "what kind of ... drives". If you didn't mean "drivers" and I've misunderstood your question, please post a follow-up with more information and I'll try to help further.

Problem installation on Windows XP


Three things
1) Do you have enough memory at lest 1Gb
2) Is it a full genuine Windows disk. Some disks out there are a mixture of different things and some cannot find hard drive
3) Try another setup disc and see if it works
Sometimes the disk has a read fault
One last thing to try is Reset BIOS to default
