    Hi sberg569, I gather from the header you posted "Trying to upgrade 440lx", into a computer system. The PC keeps shutting down & you can not complete the installation of win XP?

    The word upgrade means you had a working system. I need more information about your problem. The model number of the motherboard. EX: Asus, Abit, Gigabyte, ECT?

    Or the name of the system, EX: Dell, HP, e-Machine ECT. Did your system function correctly before you attempted the software upgrade?

Check your other post's regarding this issue sberg. I provided a link for you to download Darik's Boot And Nuke software. This software will completely wipe your drive & allow XP to install.

Hard disk gb maximum


Hello here is the homepage:

http://www.gigabyte.com/products/product-page.aspx?pid=3505#dl

The mainboard does not have a limit for the harddrive size.
But the windows system sometimes have a limit especially windows xp.
A new sata driver or a bios upgrade is sometimes needed when you add a big harddrive.
Note: take care not to flash the bios with a wrong one if needed.
And also the new drive must be formatted ( in NTFS format ) before you can use it.
If you still run windows xp, try to make more partitions, so windows can see the new drives.
Other system like windows 7, does not have this limit.

Good luck

M4A785TD-M EVO Motherboard will not boot.


Hi

From what you are descrbing it sounds like a PSU issue

Please try the following

1) Remove all the wires from the PC
2) Press and hold the power button in for about 10 seconds (yes i know there is no power :) )
3) Plug everything back in and retry, if it still fails the Power supply will need to be changed

The Power supply can be swapped out at any decent PC repair shop and is quite cheap to do

I hope this helps

Cannot upgrade pc to xp


Hi again sberg569, I see more post from you on this subject. If ME was installed by a manufacture (Not by you). There is most likely a small hidden partition at the top of the drive. Too small to allow windows to install. Suggest you download & run Darik's Boot And Nuke software. http://www.dban.org/download Choose your bootable software. Floppy disk or CD-ROM software. Darik's software will completely wipe the drive including any hidden partitions. Once completed window should install normally.

Do I really need a floppy disk to do an upgrade bios?


Of course floppy is the easiest but if you configure a flash drive with flash drive utilities to be bootable, and the BIOS will support it you can flash from the USB flash drive.

hi

is this your motherboard? http://shop.pcmag.com/shop/product_specs/Intel+D915GAG+BLKD915GAGL10+Motherboard/22673983.aspx

if so, it is ok for you to upgrade your memory up to 2gb. btw, just be sure to properly install the rams to the slots.

since youve purchased 2 x 1Gb ddr400 , put on color blue slots.

hope this helps
