Question about EliteGroup P4M800PRO-M Motherboard
I recently bought an elitegroup P4M800 motherboard, I've got 1024mg of ddr333 memory. When I turn it on it'll get as far as recognizing the hard drive and cd-roms, and it would hang for a few seconds and then shut down. It wouldn't start up again unless I cleared c-mos, and then it would do the same thing. I tried it with an ATI Radeon 9800 video card, and also with the onboard video with the same results. Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks, Dave.
It could be a memory incompatabilty problem, especially if you only get one beep from the board when booting. You say 1024MB of memory, if this is in the form of 2 x 512MB try one on it's own and make sur that you have purchased single channel memory. Also go to the bios (F2 or Del) on start up and in the standard cmos settings you may need to let the motherboard auto identify your HDD, normally by pressing F12 or similair, look in the menu. Another thing to check while in the std cmos settings is a line normally underneath all the identified drives saying 'Halt on all errors', see if this can be dissabled as it will continue to boot if there are problems without stopping it. If you have a floppy disc fitted it may be looking for that also and havibg trouble, again you can tell the bios not to look for a floop disc. As well a clearing the cmos leave out the battery for 10 minutes or so. Sorry theres a lot to check, but it is difficult to diagnose when it's not in front of you.
