Question about EliteGroup MB ECS A770M-A 770 SB600 AM2+ RTL Motherboard

1 Answer

My secondary hard disk shuts off randomly and the computer freezes.

I'm using Windows Xp SP3. I've plugged in my new hard disk the day before yesterday and it worked without any problems until last night when I found it to be frozen. I turned off the monitor and the speakers and left the PC on to keep downloading some files from Steam. I turned on the monitor, however it kept prompting "No signal" message. Today similar happend only my monitor was on so there was still something to display. The computer works fine and I can use the other hard disk as I wish. However after a random amount of time I hear the sound that is usually made by a HDD when it turns off and the computer froze, the picture and everything that was displayed just remained the same. I've waited, but nothing happened. I've been checking on the site for any support for my motherboard which is Elitegroup a770m-a motherboard ECS Here is the link to it http://www.ecs.com.tw/ECSWebSite/Product/Product_Detail.aspx?CategoryID=1&DetailID=844&DetailName=Feature&MenuID=1&LanID=0 Its the same version. My primary hard disk is Maxtor and my secondary is Western Digital. I've checked the temperature and its around 40 degrees for both (celsius), so its not the temperature. Any help would be really appriciated. Any extra information I can PROBABLY provide you with.

    The problem occurs mostly when I have something to do with the hard drive. For example when I download files on that drive, when I move files on that drive and when I try to install any program on that drive. Thank you in advance.

    The problem hasn't occured for a while now. I think it was just losing connection at random since I was moving around the PC.

  • Marko Stanarevic Jan 20, 2013

    The problem occurs when the PC does something related to this drive. For example: downloading files on that drive, installing programs on that drive and copying or moving files to that drive.

How to setup a new xp windows


Restart your computer during the boot process you will see on the screen to press a certain key to enter setup usually the delete or F2 key


Press and hold that key during the boot up process to enter BIOS then using the arrow keys scroll down to advanced bios features press enter change your first boot device to cd press escape then press f10 to save to cmos to restart


note this will erase you operating system you will have to have an operating system disk to load it onto you hard drive or create a partition to load another operating system


note after you have loaded the operating system you should go back and change the first boot device to failsafe or optimised defaults

after windows has loaded


your computer will automatically restart it might restart 2 times one to finish the installation

the next will be because the operating system is loaded and will boot from your cd


if your installation disk is only a service pack 1 or 2 you might need to create an xp sp3 disk

http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/windows/help/learn-how-to-install-windows-xp-service-pack-3-sp3

if you have a copy of windows service pack there is a program that allows you add service pack 3 to it so you have a copy of xp sp3

Pharaoh and cleopatra freezes constantly


Probably a bit late, but here are the best fixes I found:

First off, you want to:
*** Change compatibility to Windows XP (SP3)
*** Disable Visual Themes
*** Run as admin

Next you want to:

Download the pharaoh exe files (these are for modifying the resolution - this is what worked for me - I used the lowest res available, so I cannot comment on higher ones)

http://www.wsgf.org/dr/cleopatra-queen-nile/en

Or you can try this fix:
https://web.archive.org/web/20080721084339/http://www16.brinkster.com/salvage/thief/imagecfg.zip


"Download ImageCFG
Extract the .zip and place imagecfg.exe in your game's folder.
Create a batch file. First, open up notepad and paste the following.

@echo off
if not exist Pharaoh.exe goto end
if exist Pharaoh.exe.bak goto end
copy Pharaoh.exe Pharaoh.exe.bak
imagecfg -u Pharaoh.exe
imagecfg -a 0x1 Pharaoh.exe
pause
:end

Save as a .bat file and place it in your Pharaoh installation folder.
Run the batch file.

This will change the CPU affinity of Pharaoh so it will run on one CPU core."

I am returning a computer I've used for aboput a month. How do I erase the hard drive first?


If you mean wiping out all the data and operating system then -
This is generally howyour format the hard disk and install Windows.
First you need a Windows XP or Windows Vista installation CD and the productinstallation code, which is printed on the Windows label on the bottom of yourlaptop.
Boot up with the Windows installation CD start and follow the instructions toinstall Windows.
Next Delete the existing Windows partition.
Next Create a new partition.
Next format this new partition - Format the partition in NTFS not a quickformat. This will prepare the Windows for a clean install.
If you do not wish to continue installing Windows then Exit and shut down the computer.

NOT ABLE TO INSTALL WINDOW XP


Hi meetabdullah,

Have a nice day.

If you're running Windows XP and your computer software crashes or becomes unusable, you may have to run Windows XP recovery to reestablish your software and make your computer usable once again. When purchased, many computers don't come with a Windows XP recovery disk, but you can download one for free. The Windows XP recovery disk holds almost all of the computer software and files that came loaded with your PC and can assist you in rebuilding your hard drive.

Here are some instructions that somehow could help you:

1.Place a formatted disk in your disk drive. Click on the "Download a Windows XP recovery disk from Microsoft" link in Resources below. Click "Download." Then click "Save." Find your disk drive on the menu and click "OK."

2. Remove the disk when the Windows XP recovery disk download is complete, and place it in the computer on which you need to use it.

3.Shut down your computer; then turn your computer back on. Your computer will automatically start up running on the Windows XP recovery disk, which will allow you to install Windows XP once again.

Toshiba Laptop A55-S306 shuts down with error messages


It sounds to me like a virus. Boot up from a recover cd or windows cd and reinstall freashly.

If you don't have a recovery cd, contact Toshiba for one. They go around for $40 to $50. If you can't get one, buy Windows Vista and boot up from that and reinstall.
