Question about MSI K8N Neo3 Motherboard

1 Answer

Vista Home Premium locks up on a load

I have an MSI K8N Neo3 MB with a sempron 3300+ and 2 gig of PC3200 Memory and a PNY 6600 PCI card. I was running XP Pro and wanted to upgrade to Vista Home Prem. The load starts, then locks on a reboot on the windows green bar screen. I have the latest BIOS 1.7 on the board. Am I still missing something?

Let me know if I need to give more details.

    New install. I have waited upwards of 20 mins. Also, I have the AGP, not the PCI express.

How long do you wait before you determine it is locked up? Vista uses minimum graphics to facilitate a faster install. It may seem like nothing is going on when Vista is loading in the background. If it is locking up try a reinstall. Are you upgrading or going a new install?

Asuming the fan itself has failed, buy an aftermarket fan. They are usually self-adhesive.

XP to vista and install sata drive


Yes vista will format & install on the new drive. Just make sure if there is an o/s on the old drive that you set up windows vista as a dual boot if you wish to keep using the o/s on the old drive. Hope this helps.
