When you see the splash screen or BIOS menu (and before Windows
starts to load), hit the Delete key.
This will typically either get you into a boot device menu or the
BIOS settings where you should be able to select the device you want to
boot from to adjust the boot order. In other words, your computer may
normally try to boot first from the hard drive
drive.But now you have to select to boot from the dvd drive. Save the changes, and then boot
your computer again, this time without hitting any button and lay the windows disk in the dvd drive. If all goes according to plan, you should soon see a "Windows
loading" message on your screen and press any key to install windows.You can follow the on-screen
instructions to install Windows on your computer. You also need to make a full format of the harddrive, and reboot again.
Yes, that board is only a 1.1 USB port. USB 2.0 can easily be added to a computer using a USB 2.0 PCI card. These cards are relatively cheap and they can be found in almost any computer store. You can even find USB 2.0 PCI cards at Walmart. The cards will typically have 3 - 5 ports on them. These ports are setup so that you will have to plug your USB devices into the back of the computer.
This error comes when your motherbord not read properly harddrive. for that first reconnect both connection to harddisk.Power cable and ide or sata cable. Change SATA or IDE cable then check. Pull cmos cell from motherbord for 10 minutes so all settings are factory defaults. Then when you power up the computer press F1 or F2 or "del" key then you can see bios screen. Make sure hardddrive detect in bios. Set first boot device as harddrive. Then check. Let me know if you need further assistance. Thanks.
It could be any number of things. Yes, it could be motherboard but it could be any piece of hardware connected to it. Detach everything except CPU, memory, cpu fan, and video (if it doesn't have onboard video). And reboot. If it does the same thing then we've narrowed it down. If it gets past the screen and says can't find bootable device (or something simillar), then start adding on one device at a time until you find the culprit that locks it up at the splash screen. Experience tells me possibly CD drive or hard drive. Good luck!
Try choosing the 'Exit Without Saving' option in the BIOS menu. If this kicks you to the boot media search, then 99.99% the BIOS is corupt. If not, try to replace the CPU cooler (don't forget to apply the thermal grease).
Try removing your AGP card and enabling the onboard graphics again. It is possible your Radeon is a 3.3v, but this board only supports 1.5v cards. Take a look at the manual at ftp://download.intel.com/support/motherboards/desktop/D845GERG2/BV2RG2_English.pdf
the mainboard has onboard graphic adapter (S3 bla bla bla)
try using it. unplug your nvidia FX5500
how is it? does it work?
if it still not working, then STOP here. something is wrong with your mainboard
if it is working, then goto BIOS configuration
change the PROCESSOR frequency to 100 MHz (MANUAL) and the RAM frequency to 400MHz
save the configuration, and shut it down immediatelly
plug the nvidia FX5500 back, and turn your pc on...
it should be working fine now
but if you still have problem, then i'm sorry... couldn't help you any further... :)
