Pc shuts down during windows xp install

I have a new barebone system I put together myself. I am able to get into BIOS settings and everything is okay till I try to install my OS.
It will go as far as the first restart, then my pc shuts down and when I reboot, it starts windows installation all over. Everything is new and I have a good knowledge of pc hardware and installation. I have removed the RAM, one by one, rebooted and had the same problem. I have double checked all connectors and everything is installed correctly.

CPU - amd socket am2x2 5800+ /3.00GHz (new)
Heatsink and fan ( new )

HD - Seagate SATA 80gb ( new )

Memory - Kingston DDR2 pc2-5300 667MHz 4gb ( 4@ 1GB ) ( new )

Generic Power supply 450W ( new )

    Thank you I will try that

  • chuck Feb 28, 2009

    Thank you very much for the help. I feel so dumb, I should have thought of setting it back to boot from the HD. That fixed it and everything is working good.

One bad/faulty lead can cause a computer with lots of problems
replace all the leads that attach to your hard drive including electrical extensions IDE,SATA and the ones that attach from your motherboard to hard drive
hope this helps

Easy problem to solve my freind:)
Do like this, start the installation as you did before, when your pc restarts, get in to bios again and change the first boot from cd/dvd to the HDD. That will solve your instalation problem:)

Good luck to you
Please take a moment and rate my help for you

Hi , my motherboard is k7n2 delta 2 platinum ms-6570e , i've had a problem to install windows xp , but finally i did it . Now i've got problem to install some programs like office , nero itp....

Hi, you can download the drivers manualy from here:

The drivers or the bios file needs to be unziped before installation.
Install first the system and chipset drivers.

Try also to run windows update.
You will need the updates to install office and etc.

Try also to add more memory ( ram ) to your system.

Supports DDR200/266/333/400

I have a MSI K8N Neo3 MB with AMD 64 2800+ C. IPU; (1) PC-3200 256Mb and (1) 512Mb DIMM's; ATI video card. The unit has not changed in past 3 years and has worked fine. Now it just will not power down...

I don't know your experience level so if I'm to basic please don't take offense and if I not basic enough don't hesitate to ask for clarification. I've split this up into 3 parts; hardware, software and security.
First you should quit unplugging your computer to shut it off. If you don't have hardware problems already unplugging you computer while it's running is a good way to cause them.
Other than a physical problem with the CPU or motherboard you seem to have ruled out almost everything. If you haven't tried it yet try holding down your power button until the power supply shuts down (usually 10-30 seconds). If this doesn't work given what you've already tried you probably have a damaged CPU or motherboard or an incompatable power supply (any ATX supply should shut down).
If this does shut down your system your problem is more likely software related. There are several possibilities (all can cause the system to not turn off);
1) corrupted system files
2) corrupted system settings
3) malware (spyware, viruses, data miners, ect...)
4) hacked system (there are numerous possibilities here)
a) to get an idea if you've been hacked open system info in control panel, if your RAM is showing considerably less than what you have installed that's a strong sign you've been hacked.

I would recommend doing a new install of Windows, not a reinstall. Your problem could be corrupt settings and Windows may import your old setting with a reinstall. If you have a spare hard drive I'd do the install on it, this will allow you to save your data while you determine for certain if the problem is hardware or software related. If this doesn't solve your problem then your problem is (again) most likely hardware. If you determine it's hardware, you need either spare parts or expensive testers to determine your exact problem.
If a new install on another drive solves your problems you need to consider items 3 and 4 above. A new O.S. install should solve the problem for now but you need to consider your security options. You'll need a firewall, anti-virus and anti-spyware. You should also set the password on your CMOS/BIOS. If you can use accounts with your version of Windows set up a (supervisor) maintenance account and a (limited) user account. Use passwords on these accounts, use the user account unless your actually doing system maintenance that requires superviser access, this will help limit the ability for others to make changes to your system.
Your passwords for your CMOS/BIOS and supervisors should be strong, at least 14 characters with upper and lower case letters and numbers if your system will allow it included special characters. Write these down and store them in a safe place, the only persons you should tell your passwords should be "me, myself and I".

I have installed a P5KPL-AM IN/GB Motherboard from which it will not install Windows XP from CD. It Boots up normally then stops with a message "A problem has been detected and Windows has been shut down...

this could be a wealth of issues. check to see if all the hardware is compatible with the new mobo. if you're not sure try disconnecting different bits of hardware to see if you can get past the system error.
go into the bios and make sure the cd drive is listed as the first device in boot priority

Problem booting into Windows.

This could be a hard drive problem. The hard drive is looking for the boot sector on it, but the boot sector is broken. Computer shuts down and tries again but your hard drive can't find the boot sector so it shuts down tries again etc.

About windows setup

Hi niket_shah, sorry but you're board Asus M2N-MX, does support Win XP SP2.
Chances are that while installing windows updates one or more updates failed. People like myself know from repairing PC's which updates need to be installed first. If you're Win XP SP2 did not or would not install than either the Win CD is not a valid Microsoft Win XP SP2 CD or (You have a copy) & there is something wrong with the CD. After a fresh (New install) of Win XP with SP2 there is more than 90+ updates for SP2 which must be downloaded through windows update program. Or you're windows will not function properly.
Just to show you what versions of windows the M2N-MX board does support. Click the link listed below. Once the link loads click the + sign next to Audio. Scroll down the page an notice the different Window version listed for you're board.
To recap this issue. The problem is either the WinCD or possibly you're hard drive. Make sure you allow windows to perform a full format before installing window. (Not a quick format).

Blue screen in A8N32 SLI Deluxe Motherboard which worked excellently-ACPI

I had this issue myself. It took a very long day of searching... but all I ended up having to do was disabling the parallel port in BIOS. (I even went so far as to update BIOS, and the bugger just wouldn't load past the Windows loading screen unless I turned off that stupid parallel port.

I know this solution is late, but maybe it could help.

Installing new hard drive.

From what it sounds like it is not your motherboard or harddrive. it is the formating of the hard drive. What is the format you are using for your harddrive ? FAT32 or NTFS ? are you Partitioning your drive ? Are you familure with dos commands ?

Can not save to bios

windows and the bios needs to know that the operating system can be shut down through windows, so when you go into the F2 or Del on boot up, go into advanced cmos setings and look for ACPI and make sure it is enabled. This sets the motherboard to support shutdown. Save and exit settings and reboot. Now go to control panel>performance and maintanance>power options and set the correct instruction for shutdown to shut the pc down. Remember evertime you remove the cmos battery or reset with jumpers you have to reset date and time and anything else you have changed to suit your set up
