Screen dies while booting up

I have a P3 800mhz 256 MB RAM, 80 gb hdd, no g card...

after installing windows XP or 2000 the screen dies.. but t does not happen with windows 98!!

If it were a hardware problem then how everything works in 98 environment?

I was using Windows XP on this desktop foe past 4 years, this problem was not there!!
After fresh install(format also) the problem persists..

You are not using enough ram for XP or 2000 in my opinion. I would up the RAM to at least 1 Gig and then try the install again. XP uses more resources than 98.

Thanks for using FixYa, I hope this helps.

I have a computer with an intel al440lx motherboard, pentium 2 processor w/mmx, ATI rage 3d graphics card ,creative sound blaster pci sound card, 7GB quantum HDD and 40GB seagate HDD and 1.024 GB SDRAM...


Hi,
This is not a software problem. The problem lies in the motherboard.

The motherboard which you are using is an AL440LX motherboard which supports a maximum of 384MB of RAM. The computer will not recognize any more RAM. In order to use 384MB, you will have to add a 128MB RAM along with the 256MB already present and not any more !!
This is the solution !!

PC does not boots / does not start


Since your system reboots even if you stay in the Bios setup the problem with your system might be because of heating up of the proceesor, which might be caused if the fan CPU fan is rotating slowly or is not rotating at all. If the fan is rotating slowly change the cpu fan and try to reinstall XP

PC does not boots


Change the SMPS, preferably with 450 & above wattage. Also you must be using an UPS(uninterrupted power supply or battery back-up so there are no chances of voltage fluctuation. At the time of changing the SMPS also remove the RAM and clean the contact points with a piece of normal white paper..............sodeep

Hi there

I think it may be a graphics problem. May be the XP drivers are not compatible with your machine graphics card.
You could try this to solve it ...

From the web, possibly on another PC that's got the internet, download the graphics driver for your machine and save it to a USB disk.

Once the set up is complete, try booting into safe mode (press F8 on boot, then select boot into Safe Mode)

Now try running the driver from the USB disk (or copy it to C: drive first then run it).

I had the same problem with an Intellistation 6868 for years. It just wouldn't load XP but ran fine on Windows 2000 SP4. I tried 3 different XP Installation CD's with no luck. After several attempts at installing XP I bought a clean XP Upgrade from ebay.

It took me 3 goes to install it but eventually I got it in there. If you can get XP to start on the 6868 press F8 and start it in safe mode first then when it's booted fully, shut it down and and then start it clean again. It worked for me. I've been running it for 5 months now and it's fine.

I couldn't get it to work at all on the 6868's onboard IDE so I installed a PCI Raid Card and it boots fine on that.

System:
IBM 6868 52A M-Pro Intellistation
2 x Intel P3 866 CPU's 256 mb cache
2 GB ECC RD Ram
2 x Seagate 320 GB 8MB Cache HDD on a Sunix ATA133 PCI Raid Card
2 x Seagate 10000 rpm SCSI HDD on Adaptec Raid Card
ATI 9520 AGP 128mb Graphics
