Question about Foxconn 661FX7MI-RS (661FX7MIS) Motherboard

1 Answer

Failing to install Xp

Two symptoms. 1.)The package loads and then gets to the restart and then just sits there or hangs with the little blue line stopping and then sometimes you can access via Safe Mode but nothing seems wrong. 2.)The installation gets to 35% (Installing devices) and then just hangs. Any ideas anyone. Have two machines doing the same. Reverted one to 2000 and then upgraded it and it sort of works but you cannot save anything as it says the file names are invalid. POssibly somethig to do with Hard drive controller ???

I have seen this happen for 2 reasons, bad cpu and bad or memory error, and possibly a bad motherboard. Rare possibilty is bad CD rom or bad file on CD.

When you do an install of Windows XP to 8 the system restarts automatically to run some of the programs in resident memory. I would suggest that you try a new install of your OS, If you are running a clocked CPU you should unclock it to remove that from the list of possible causes. The problem may also be a symptom of some upgrades to Windows not having been installed. The most common faults with this type of symptom is the lack of the Dot.Net upgrades from Microsoft the minimum needed is version 2 but the version level is currently at Version4. If you are still having the Kernel power problems you mat have a failed motherboard or more likely a dodgy psu. When you spend that sort of money on a MOBO and CPU/Graphics package you need to get a good (named ) PSU preferably at least a "Bronze" certified item.

My Compaq Presario X1000 restarts itself when using WIFI

old compaq. LAPTOP,, 14 years old now, Im amazed it even glows at all with CCFL lamps not dead, wow.. its like a musiem piece.
(sorry , grin) (back ground lamps CCFL)
NO OS stated by you , XP, ????? why must helpers beg?

and wifi , (difficult that)
it's not wifi, its just that you use wifi most the time ,SEE? right?
in fact we could remove the wifi module. and prove that.
disabling wifi is airplane mode, (todays jargon) but means the wifi transmitter is now OFF (airplane safe is THAT)

the blue screens tell a lot, and no posted photo of one by you.
BSODs we call those blue screens of *****
XP love to do that. (even with Bill Gates on stage) LOL
BSOD are hard. Im sure it says 2 words, HALT and DUMP !
here is a list of causes.... for sure 14year old relics (legacy junk)

  1. the main battery inside is bad or shorted, remove it run AC , does it, wow, it does, problem solved in minutes flat.
  2. the Inverter is shorted (CCFL card) and bom, BSOD
  3. bad RAM, BSOD XP fast , try 1 stick at a time.
  4. Bad HDD< can corrupte files and XP BSODS in a blink !
  5. any thing shorted, remove all usb devices yet?
  6. remove extra ram. , unplug CD drive?

all techs know rule 1,
is it hardware or software, (this is alway first after #1 above done)
to do that we open the CD tray, insert our free LIVE LINUX CD
and boot to linux
wow it runs for hours ok, proving what, HARDWARE IS BAD
if Linux fails its bad hardware (running period correct disk)
if linux runs i next do a full HDD test, using the great linux program there to do that.

or take that handy dandy, Compac (now HP) 3 disk install disks
set and load disk one, does that run? ok
even full restore. or does it show HDD errors.? oops HDD is bad.

the BSODs are really what.
it means the PC attempted to run and ******* instruction.
in simple terms, it means a program is corrupted.
or tried to do ******* things with memory.
that is why test test the PC with a boot CD to see if the PC is ok.

mr wifi real.
sure this can short, but if it is removed and it still BSODs
its not this card, its other cards, shorted. or not at all. cards.
we call this mini-PCI slot card.

Having Problem formating a hard drive with P4M900-M7 FE board

It sounds like the hard drive is bad, it should not take anywhere near that long to format it. The blue screen that you are getting trying to load xp can also be caused by the hard drive being bad, because it cannot read the information to complete the boot up.

If you have another hard drive sitting around, throw it in and try to install windows on it.

Hope this helps

Problem loading XP Serve Pack 2 in Gigabyte 8I845GVM-RZ

I know this may sound mundane, but did you load the correct set of windows drivers for the Intel 845 chipset? I mistakenly loaded the Home drivers onto a unit I tried to install Pro on and I got all sorts of errors.
