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

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
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
hope this helps
