Computer Upgrade Problem

I have been using an Asus P4C800-E for many years and recently wanted to upgrade the motherboard, memory, and video card. I just put in an Asus P5Q SE motherboard. I have the 8 Gig of RAM, video, and connected my hard drive that I have been using. It seems that the Windows XP won't boot up. I will see the Windows logo for a moment, and then a blue screen with errors and then it reboots. It sees the hard drive. The error message I really can't read. It displays it for about a half second with a blue screen and then it reboots. The blue screen comes up for a half a second, so I had an idea to take a small video of the screen with my camera and freeze frame it to see what it says. This is what it says: 'A problem has been detected and windows has been shut down to prevent damage to your computer. If this is the first time you've seen this stop error screen,restart your computer. If this screen appears again,follow these steps: Check for viruses on your computer. Remove any newly installed hard drive or drive controllers. Check your hard drive to make sure it is properly configured and terminated. Run chkdsk /F to check for hard drive corruption, and then restart your computer. Technical information *** STOP: 0x0000007B (0xDACCB524.0xC0000034.0.00000000.0x00000000)' It even does this in a constant loop with the backup drive. When I connect the hard drive back to my old motherboard, everything works find. I simply just want to be able to boot my new SATA drive that was cloned from my old one. Both drives work on the old motherboard, but not the new Asus P5Q SE board.

    I will do a clean install of Windows XP and see what happens. Your probably right. It maybe a driver conflict loaded from the old drive info to the hardware on the new motherboard.

    Since I now have a 64-bit processor, would it be better to purchase the Windows XP x64? Would there much difference in performance for applications to the 32-bit version of XP?

  • Dennis Carey Jan 05, 2009

    I have 8 Gig of RAM, so that's not a problem. Would the performance really run much better with the Windows 64 version or is it just better to stay with the Windows 32 version?

Here is the problem, you have to re-install windows, the reason is because the older drivers for the motherboard are installed, the pci bridge, and the system devices, apci drivers etc. That's why it runs fine in the other motherboard, all you have to do is reboot with the windows cd, and reinstall windows, you can also maybe repair the system with the windows boot cd and the motherboard drivers that came with the new board. If you need more help, just drop me a e-mail address and I will give you step by step directions on how to do it.

Have a nice day!

    P.S. Also Windows XP will only show 3.5GB of RAM unless you use 64Bit Windows.

Check your bios settings if they are ok move on to cables on the new motherboard. If worse comes to worse try booting off the xp disc and repairing windows.

    EKSE is correct in stating that winxp 32 bit does not support more than 3gb of ram. Try dropping your memory down to 2 or 3 if that solves it windows xp 64 bit is your next option.

Note that you need a 64bit version of windows for more than 3GB of ram, also when moving to new hardware a fresh installation of windows is recommended.

Well if you cloned your drive that would include all the drivers from your old PC (all the hardware). You need to do a fresh windows install on the new drive while its hooked to your new PC so that it can install all the correct drivers and files so that windows will run properly.

You may not need to upgrade your computer to play PC games.
I recommend before you purchase a PC game, have a look at the PC requirements on the packaging on the box for that game you wish to buy and it will state the minimum PC requirements for that PC game.

Can MSI K9MM-V Motherboard Support the XFX RADEON 6790 Graphics Card ?


No! you need an AGP x8 card. Your motherboard doesn't support PCI-E. If you want to run a card as fast and new as this you will need to upgrade your motherboard. There are Socket AM2 motherboards available so that the only thig you will need to replace is the motherboard, but you will need to be quick as those with DDR2 memory sockets are becoming rare.(ie expensive)

Sir/Maam, i have intel celeron D331 processor 775 lga socket . i want to upgrade Motherboard, can i use ecs G31T-M7 (775 lga socket)? if not, what board brand/model do i have to use?i want latest ddr2...


As long as the socket is the right type for the processor, you can use the motherboard. Just be aware that changing the motherboard won't make the processor any faster, so you might not see a big performance improvement unless you upgrade the processor along with the motherboard and RAM. Many vendors offer package pricing on motherboard/CPU combinations, so you may want to look into that.

Where is the expansion slot for the RAM for ASUS Notebook A2400H?


The manual is incorrect. Memory is under keyboard. There is a small hole to the left of the right speaker. insert a paperclip vertically into the hole and apply a slight amount of pressure at the same time sliding the plastic section to the left. It should be obvious at this stage. then fold back keyboard. 2 memory slots are located under the plate near the middle of the unit. Specs say max of 2 x 512MB modules. they are PC2100 DDR266 200 pin SODIMM. If there is someone else reading this maybe they can tell me what the slot is for under the smaller plate to the right of the memory compartment.

Cheers.

Your laptop can have up to 1 GB of memory. You should have two slots and you can install 512 MB per slot. Your laptop is using 200 Pin DDR PC2100 266 MHz CL 2.5 SODIMM. You can also install PC3200, but your laptop will clock it down to 266 MHz.
