Question about Foxconn G31MX-K socket LGA775 motherboard

1 Answer

System does not boot on 1st attempt

My machine does not boot on 1st attempt when I hit the power switch the computer starts and gets stuck on the initial Foxconn screen. After a few moments of switching off the computer & restarting then the system boots without an issue. But now I have to repeat this process about 3 times in order to get the system running.

I am using a XFX Nvidia Geforce 8600GT graphics card. When I switch to onboard VGA this problem does not arrise.

Awaiting your swift reply.

    Power outlets are working fine. This power supply unit I am using now is a new 1 which i bought very recently. The computer starts & then hangs in the "Foxconn" logo stage, even before the RAM & IDE devices are configured.

Sounds like you are trying to boot from a lan or someplace other than your hard drive. Turn the computer off then turn it back on and watch the screen for which key it says to hit to Change the Boot Order or Boot Sequence then hit that key. You have to hit the key when you see the message or it will not work and you'll have to reboot to restart the process. Select the Hard Drive as your boot source and then see if it boots up all the way. If it does, you will have to do this each time you start the computer unless you make a permanent change to the boot order or boot sequence.

To make the change permanent, turn the computer off and restart it. Look at the screen for which key it says to hit to get into the Bios or System Setup then hit that key. You have to hit the key when you see the message or it will not work and you'll have to restart. Once you get into the Bios or System Setup look for the Boot Sequence Tab or Settings and go change the boot sequence or Boot Order. Make the cd drive 1st, and the hard drive 2nd. This is the normal boot order or boot sequence. Just make sure when you boot the computer you don't have a music cd or movie dvd in the drive or you'll get an error because the system will try to boot from the cd/dvd drive 1st.

Selected boot device is not available

What are you trying to boot from? It sounds like you selected something other than your hard drive.

When you power on the computer take note of which key it says to hit to Change the Boot Order or Boot Sequence and hit that key. This is a one time change that will get you booted up. You should select your Hard Drive to boot from.

To make the change permanent you will have to get into you Bios or System Setup. Reboot the computer and notice what key it says to hit to get into the Bios or System Setup then hit that key. When it opens up, hit the tab that lets you change the boot sequence or boot order then save it and exit out. Normally you want the DvD/CD drive 1st and the Hard Drive 2nd. This way if your system has problems you can insert a repair disk or operating system disk to fix it in the drive. The only drawback is that you need to make sure nothing is in the CD/DvD drive when you boot up (such as a music cd or movie dvd) or you will get a message telling you that it can't boot from the device.

If you like, you could just make the Hard Drive as your first boot device.

Imedia system32 error

okay this is a confusing post/question. you can always start a machine from bio regardless of what operating system you're running. if you're attempting to boot from the disc, tap f12 @ boot until you get a one time boot menu and choose the dvd/cd drive. that should load the setup file. the windows disc does not load setup onto the hard drive. if you're running xp when you have the option hit 'r' to repair the computer, when you get into command prompt type sfc /scannow. this will search and fix all system files. you can also try chkdsk c: /r this will fix any errors in the file structure. good luck

My Px 7 do not start, get stuck and the screen reads searching for OS


First of all, let's make sure that the computer is booting up from the Hard Disk Drive. To do so, follow these steps:
>Turn computer ON.
>After pressing the power button to turn the computer ON, keep tapping "F12" until Advanced Boot Configuration" comes up.
>Look for an option that has HDD. Select that option using either with the "UP" or "DOWN" arrow and hit "ENTER".
>If your computer boots up, then it means that the computer is not booting up to the Hard Drive but from somewhere else. If it still does not boot up then it means that the Operating System is corrupted and needs to be reinstalled using a Recovery Disc or a Retail version of Windows Operating System.

Hello mycomet,
The problem with your laptop may be a virus infection that is slowing down the start-up process and intercepting the operating systems' RPCs(remote procedure calls) to the ACPI(Advanced Configuration and Controller Interface),halting system shutdown. To disinfect your PC, I recommend that you use the Kaspersky Live Recovery CD from using a working PC.Record the resulting ISO disk image file on a CD.Follow instructions from for more details.
However, if you have a Windows installation CD/DVD and the appropriate drivers for your system,you can re-install your operating system afresh and that will solve your problem.

My 6400 did up-grade and closed down. It re-booted and is now stuck on WINDOWS VISTA HOME PREMIUM screen. If I switch off and switch on, it just freezes at same place

Start the laptop and insert the Vista installation disc in the dvd tray. Now reboot the laptop with the disc in. When you see the Dell name tap the F12 key to get to the multiboot menu. When you see the menu come up, scroll down to DVD or cd player. The machine will then look at the dvd player to boot from, the disc will be read and you will see this "Hit any key to boot from CD", I usually just hit the space bar, this will start windows files loading. When windows has finished loading its files, it will ask you want to do. Scroll down and choose repair. Windows will search for all the Windows installations on the disc, there should be only one and it will be listed. Click on that and highlight it and click next. Vista will attempt to repair the and the boot.ini files. When it is finished it will either tell you it fixed some errors or it will tell you that it cannot fix the repairs automatically. In most cases, the repair will completed and you just have to remove the disc and reboot when it tells you to. If it is unable to repair, it will give you other options, choose restore computer to an earlier time, choose a restore point before the update and click next....I usually go back a couple of days just to make sure, the computer will go through a system restore and back itself up a couple of days before the trouble. Reboot the laptop.

Computer is not booting properly

Unplug power from the device for 2-5 minutes, with the machine in the On position if possible, or holding the power button in for at least 20 seconds.

Once this time has elapsed, attempt to boot the system pressing F8 repeatedly while it is powering on.

If you can get to a boot menu, select Safe Mode.

Simply allow it to Boot and then select Shut Down

Boot it back, and your issues, if minor, should be resolved. Please let us know if you are still having any issues.

Sporadic Booting

Depending on whether the issue is powering on, or booting to the OS, will determine the failure in the system. If the system powers on but will not boot to the hard drive, then the answer may be the HDD is slow to spin up to operating speed. If this is the case, then multiple attempts to start the computer will spin up the drive but it will not stop spining before the next attempt. After several tries, the HDD gets to operating speed fast enough and boots.

If the system is not powering on at all, then I suspect a problem in the switch itself/motherboard.
