    My computer has run fine for a year. TRI-SLI on an ASUS Formula II. Tayan 1100 watt power supply. My other ASUS Striker Extreme board just went out, and I had it refurbished.



    Now this system is acting up. It started when it said it was missing the sys file in windows folder. Theres 2 harddrives, so i wiped the first one and went to reinstall and got the message "Vista cant find a compatible hd", so i went to install on the 2nd hd and got the error message that Vista cant install on this hd, its GTP, or somthing, file system. Then i took out 2 of my video cards, pulled the harddrive cage out, then i could install Vista magically with only 1 hd installed, but vista wouldnt update, activate, and i couldnt update the time. Turned off windows firewalls, still nothing. Re-installed windows and then everything worked. 1 day later, system starts getting blue screen of death on some start ups. Not everyone, but about 1/2 the time. Im thinking maybe its my cmos battery. i already used differnt harddrives and everything. If its not the cmos, its quite possibly another bad mother board?....man, i sure hope not.

    Windows BSOD is simply the system informing you of a hardware issue, not locating the HDD does seem odd, do you have any other drives you could use? how old is this particular drive?

    As always how is your PSU's output?

Hi Dear,
This is Azeem Inam. So you are having a blue screen when you try to start your windows. its not all the time but when your computer restarts it says no system disk present. Dear you'll have to do 2 things with your motherboard in order to solve above stated problem.
1. Change the Slot of your RAM. And;
2. Change the position of jumper # J32 written as CMOS, to the one free pin and the centeral pin. it is found near the battery. start the computer, it may not start now replace the jumper to its original position again. It will reset all settings. and you are done.

Thanks for your contact. We hope to have a better response from you in future.

What steps will be done in order for me to reformat my computer?


1) All computer has BIOS ( Basic input/output system). Here, you can set up how your PC will run. It is a blue colored full screen with different tabs like general, exit, devices and many more. Go to BIOS by simply hitting del (delete) continuously after restarting your computer.

2) Once in BIOS, look for the booting set up. Listed there are the devices which computer normally boots. ( Harddisk, CD-rom, Floopy Disk and Network)

3) Place the CD-Rom as the first boot and see to it that the bootable CD of Operating system you want is inserted in the CD-Rom. Then Place harddisk as the second booting device. Third and fourth booting devices are not usually important.

4) Save the changes and Exit. This will restart your computer automatically.

5) When your computer restarts wait until you see a message saying.........
Boot to CD........<----if this showed up hit any key to boot to CD. This will make your computer refer to the CD.

6) They will ask you if you want to delete or to create a new partition. For me just delete the partition and do not create anymore partitions. This will only slows your computer down.

7) After Deleting the partitions, they will ask you if you wanted to format you PC. There are 4 choices in there:

a. Quick format (FAT)
b. Format (FAT)
c. Quick format (NTSF)
d. Format (NTSF)

Choose the format either NTSF or FAT. Sometimes quick formatting result to corruption of some files.

8) The computer will copy the contents needed from the CD to your PC and installs it. Windows will appear but i know when you see one you can understand what to do. It will just ask for date and time and user name if you want to.

9) After the installation is complete the computer will automatically restart.

10) Once restarted, set the display in your choice. You can do anything now. Congratulations, you now can reformat

How to dual boot xp and vista?


Hi,

First of all partition a drive up. Make sure its a large capacity drive, something well over 100GB.

Boot the computer with CD/DVD set as the first boot device and pop the XPmag-glass_10x10.gif CD in the drive and allow setup to begin. When you come to the screen where you select the drive partition you should see the drive listed with all the space listed as unpartitioned. If the drive was in use previously, you'll need to delete all the existing partitions. To do this you'll have to hit the 'D' key followed by the 'L' key. The screen instructions will be visible to guide the process.

Once all the existing partitions are deleted the display will show the total unpartitioned disk space.
Hit the 'C' key to create a partition. Personally i partion mine to 80GB (81920MB)

On the newly created partition, (not the raw one) install XP on that. Carry on with the installation until its final restart, it will be a light blue screen.

Quickly pop the Vista disk into the drive and start the Vista install. When it askes where you want Vista choose the unallocated partition. If you let XP load up first then you will not have the dual boot option on start up.

If you have done this correctly then each time the computer restarts during Vista install you see a boot message on screen saying "older version of window(XP) and Vista.

Lets Vista fully install right up until it loads the welcome screen. Then you can restart the computer, choose older version of windows to complete and load the XP operating system.

You then have to switch between them both to install drivers, software etc.

If you want to use both operating systems at a time then you need a virtual operating system installed but they are not that good as memory is kept at a minimum.

Good luck and please post back if you need anymore advice.


Regards.

Windows freezes up before boot is complete


If you have your computer Recovery disk, place the disk in the drive and restart the computer. It sounds like your OS is corrupted and needs to be reloaded.

My mouse keeps freezing


Blue screen is not a good sign at all. It can man alot of things, the driver is not right, you have a virus on your computer, or someone is in your computer. I would go and get and good firewall program or use xp or vista firewall. If that doesn't work then you do have virus. I would do a complete refresh on the system longest you have the recovery disk.

Blue screen when trying to boot windows


you have the "blue screen of death" i had this same problem and the easiest way to fix it is to take the hard drive out and put it into another computer back up all files you want to keep on it have a boot disk for the right windows operating system on it use the boot disk with it once it is back in the right computer and then put all the files you saved back on it. the blue screen of death occurs when there is a registry error on your computer. if the blue screen of death appears again then you need a new computer.

My computer restart again and again and hanging problem also and after restarting my monitor screen going on blue .


I know exactly what your problem is. Your computer is not going through the POST because it sounds like the RAM for your computer has went out and died. You need to find out what kind of RAM your computer has and write it down. That is why you get the blue screen of death cause your RAM is faulty and needs to be replaced in order to initialize POST and boot into your operating system so that you can use your PC. If you need further help don't hesitate to ask. Thanks!

System won't complete the RESTART process


Do a check disk (chkdsk) using either:

1) Go to My Computer > right click on the drive with windows that won't boot > click properties > go to tools tab > click error checking > tick both boxes and click check now > it will say windows needs to restart, allow it too.

OR

2) Boot up using the installation disk... I will need the OS version (XP, Vista etc.) to tell you how to do that.

Sysem will not remoot fast and properly


It sounds like you are having a hard drive failure.

The message your getting is not asking for the motherboard disk, it is asking for an operating system disk.

I don't understand how the computer ever get's to the Net if it can't get past asking for a system disk.

Please provide further information, such as operating system, how old the computer and hard drive are, and a more clear description of what the system is, or is not, doing.
