    at the current time there are no pci cards in computer, and is running on built in video, problem is with motherboard or cpu.! Question is Why would a computer run win98, but no longer run win xp ?

  • Stephen Hall Dec 31, 2008

    As to the computer over heating, if that were true the computer would stop, but it will run windows 98 with out a problem, and it was never overclocked.

What does it say when yu attempt to install it should boot from cd/dvd drive are you getting the menu that asks you what you want to do repair, install or quit, if you aren't getting to that point then it's a hardware issue, or the disk is flawed. you should clear the cmos as mentioned ans pop out the battery to make sure the old settings aren't fouling up your install, and you should enable booting from the dvd drive not the floppy or hard drive, but that's it really.

Please restore the BIOS to factory settings and run the recovery console from your xp cd when the text based part of the setup starts press R. Select the xp installation that you want to access from the Recovery Console. When you are prompted, type the Administrator password if you have not set one by default it is blank. Then type chkdsk in the command prompt /(windows xp drive letter), do not type a drive letter if you want to check the current disk. Please let me know the results once you have done this.

Hello. I recently bought a new motherboard, fmb-0703; and windows will not load. It starts, but does not fully load. I'm running windows 7 pro 32 bit. Bios boots, every works except windows


I could be a couple of things. If it is not loading correctly More than likely something to do with memory either motherboard ram or video ram. try a live boot cd and see if it loads like hirams boot cd with live windows. it is free. also you can the motherboard and ram and hard drive the the live cd to pinpoint hardware problems. just a thought. good luck.

PC HANGS ON BOOT


Try running the Check Disk Utility.

To run the check disk utility you will need a repair disc ora operating system disc. Put the disc in the cd drive and boot fromit. You want to get to the Dos Command Prompt (Black screen with whiteletters) and type the following command: chkdsk /r
Check disk will run well over an hour or two and you will notice thepercentages going from high to low, this is normal. Let it run tocompletion. Then reboot machine.

If check disk fails to solve your problem you might have to reinstall windows.Try doing a Repair Install that way you don't loose your data, documents,music, pictures, videos or programs.

In windows xp you get to the dos command prompt by selecting R for repair whenthe options appear.

In Vista and Windows 7 you want to get to the recoveryconsole and look down at the bottom of the window for the Dos Command.

Continuous restarting with winxp


On computers that contain Windows 98 and Windows XP: ? Windows 98 must be installed on a basic disk on a partition formatted with FAT or FAT32. If Windows 98 or Windows Me is not installed on the system partition, which is almost always the first partition on the disk, the system partition must also be formatted with FAT or FAT32. ? Compressed DriveSpace or DoubleSpace volumes won't be available while you are running Windows XP. It is not necessary to uncompress DriveSpace or DoubleSpace volumes that you will access only with Windows 98. ? Windows XP must be installed last. Otherwise important files needed for starting Windows XP could be overwritten
