System: Intel P4, 3 GHz HT, ASUS P5QL SE Mobo. 1GB RAM. Mobo is new. Did a Win XP pro repair with a student version with SP3 included. All works OK except that on the Shut Down - Turn Off command, the machime re-starts after about a second or two. The fans actually stop for a while then all starts up again. A normal re-start still works OK with the fans not stopping. Have cheched all BIOS settings and Windows power management settings. Have also sequentially and progressively unhooked case speaker, power and HDD LEDs, case fan. No change. Has anybody had the same?

Well about guaranteed your 2 gigs ram is probably DDR II ram which has maximum of four gigs with 64 bit processing and 2 with 32 bit is. So motherboard needs upgrade. 35.00 for good giabit or board with 1000 megs a sec ethernet lan. With ddrIII ram. And upgrade operating system I believe win 8 has max 16 gig ram win 7 uses 8 gis vista and longhorn 64 use 4 and xp normal edition 32 bit uses 2 max. So you about have to run win 7 or 8. Win 7 will become direct x incomparable at some point making us change to win 8. Win8 cost like 300 to 350 and tiger direct.com has good deal of the win 7 pro media center for 75 bucks. So spend 150 on good speed 8 gig ram, 125 bucks for 12 core and at 4 GHz I think. And a board for 35. Reuse all other componets. And you\'ll have a 2500 dollar computer and best on the block.

This problem occurs because of confliction between RAM memory frequency. For that you must have 2 RAM with same memory frequency and same company chip . Then it works fine with 2 RAM. Let me know if you need further assistance. Thanks.
You can configure your boot setup from your bios screen (for dell, either F11 or F12) then set up your optical drive as your 1st priority then, save settings. After that, you need to insert your windows XP cd in order for it to boot.
inform me of what happened after you have done this.
Did you install the drivers for the motherboard already? If so check the connections from the power switch to the board which all should be on the bottom right of your mobo. I switched a + and - one time and it went into a infinite look of turning on and off = / Beyond that ASUS Customer support sucks and I would just try to RMA it and start over.
Tell it(The BIOS set up screen) to load default settings. Start up CD driver first. Then
Save and exit.
Now install Xp disk and turn computer back on. After windows loads . Run the install disk that came with *********** board. If I missed something or is doesn't work exactly as I stated , write back and I wil assist you farther.
it would be difficult to advise you as to which board to go for, as there are many different things to take into consideration, i would look at www.ebuyer.com and choose one then do a google search for any buyers comments.
The problem with Win 98 is that newer mobo,s will not have driver support for it, as with Win98 you have to continually revert back to your win98 cd to install certain files which are no longer compatible with new boards.
If you wish to dual boot a system; using XP and vista would be more suitable for the type of hardware you will be using.
