This is tech crazy

The main reason for this problem may be due to the detection problem in your system. This can be dealt with by reconnecting the SATA cable inside the CPU. it worked out well for me .Please do try out.

Hope this solution helps you

Please do rate me on the above said solution

Shut it down and un plug it, then re try it, if it still doesnt recognise it pop out the battery in the motherboard so it drops the settings. You probablly don't have to do that, but in case you do, you won't have to go looking for me, good luck,if you need me it's gymowner, peace

MSI P965 Pt Continually re-boots on start-up

You don't say exactly at what point in the boot sequence the system crashed and restarts. Many things could be at work here. You say you are using the HDD from the previous system. Did you swap this drive straight out and are still using the OS load from the previous system? Windows loads drivers at startup based upon the hardware installed. If you are using and old WIndows load with a new mainboard, this could be the entire cause of your crashes. YOu may be able to get to SAGE mode and remove the old drivers and try to restart the system, but from experience I will tell you that to get the best results when installing a new mainboard, you should reload the OS from the original OS disk, and then load the new mainboard drivers.

Not much info given here, but try unloading the process at startup by Clicking the "Start" button, select "Run", type "msconfig" without the quotes, and hit Enter. On the "Startup" tab select and remove the check mark next to the startup item that is associated with the solution center. This item may be obvious or you may need to plug a few of executable names into a Google search to find the culprit. OK the removal and restart the computer. Depending on the operating system you will be prompted not to show a notice about changes made. Not to worry, in almost all cases the procedure can be reversed if by chance the wrong item is removed. PC-Professor, good luck!
