A couple of possibilities/things to try:
1. After reset & remove battery, go to the CMOS/BIOS setup and load default configurations;
2. "...loading windows ... screen goes black..." are you installing a fresh clean Windows or are you using an image/recovery of your old Windows. If it's an image/recovery, it is possible and very likely that the OS is no longer recognizing the motherboard as the old motherboard because of the BIOS update. Perhaps you should try a clean fresh install.
3. try booting in to a simple bootable diskette/CD of FreeDos or Dos 6.2 or variants, just to check if the motherboard will finish POST and BOOT.
Post back that we can figure out other possibilities or should you need further information. Hope this be of some idea/help to you.
Good luck and kind regards.
Disconnect all devices except keyboard and mouse and master cd or DVD. unplug then hit power button. Plug back in. Hit power and hopefully you get to BIOS. If you do make sure you save the BIOS before you leave to start OS. Keep me informed and I'll keep checking your listing to see if its working or not.
looks like a windows-related problem. try if your keyboard works at all by entering bios but do not change anything. just quit saving no changes. does it work? if yes, possibly a windows error. to check : - try booting from a windows-cd(XP), not from harddisk, without going through install process, execute the repair process instead. - reboot from your harddisk in safe mode. everything o.k.?
if still the problem, and don't have any personal data you might loose on harddisk(hdd) reinstall windows xp anew, but this time let it format the hdd fully, then go on installing a clean, new copy of win XP. when still facing the problem, plse come again
Hi, Plug the USB keyboard into another port (preferably one at the back) restart the PC and enter the BIOS again, this time go through the BIOS and set all the USB controllers to enabled, hit F10 save the changes and exit the bios. The computer will restart and you should now be able to use the USB keyboard to install the OS. Please post back if you need anymore advice.
Restore your PC before the BIOS update. BIOS updates are not required until & unless you face problems while running a software and it will prompt you for BIOS update. Do this update if its vital othewise do not intergere in the BIOS. I faced the same problem and after unistalling all drivers and again reload the original driver from MB VD slved it. Another thing in BIOS is USB setting at high-spped & full-speed. Try changing those settings and retry. Mine worked!...sodeep
hi im josh in cebu phils. Friend if some files wont transfer during the installation. the problems are centered to your cd installer or your optical disk drive. try change the cd installer if it is too scratchy or if your cd is good.try to change your optical disk.try use the faster one sothat you may done easily. good luck hope i helped you.pls.vote me if it helps you so that i will know.thnks.
hehe I prolly could, depending on where you are, but it would cost a fortune ;o)
The problem you've got is that it's a USB keyboard (the system will recognize it for the BIOS, but not for anything else until drivers are loaded, which aren't done prior to the OS loading). You'll need to obtain a PS2 keyboard for this.
ok, for what I understand you changed your motherboard, tried to boot your old windows and it went bananas on you. Wich is really not uncommon. Then you tried installing windows and your keyboard would not do anything. As far as the keyboard issue goes, I am guessing that you use a USB keyboard. Windows is such a wonderful piece of software that it's no surprise it acts up like that. Try enabling USB Keyboard support in the BIOS, or better yet, try connecting a PS2 keyboard (the round plug). Chances are everything is gonna be just fine after that.
