Re: Biostar GF 7100-M7 windows xp trouble
Do you see any text at all when booting up? If so, try pressing F8 on reboot to get to the Windows Boot menu. It's not real apparent when you are supposed to do this, so once the system gets past the initial Power on Self Test, start tapping it. Select Safe Mode and see if your display loads. Set your video settings to something safe and simple like 1024 x 768. Reboot to normal Windows and begin bumping your video settings up from there until you get them where you want them.

hi... I suggest you need to FORMAT your hard drive do partitioning and then you can proceed to installing your Windows XP and OS...install audio driver if needed by your sound card...wallla..its seems as new...pls. rate and vote...good day
Your XP keycode authentication is linked to your equipment (motherboard/cpu, etc). If you have replaced the MB with something different than the original equipment, your OS may not run - you'll need to contact MS to resolve this conflict. You could try an in-place XP repair.
Hi, intially when you install the chipset drivers from the website http://www.biostar.com.tw/app/en/mb/driver.php?S_ID=421 it will install the USB 2.0 drivers for you as it is already in the package. However, I now currently have the same problem as you as it seems that either a Windows Update or other software has removed this.
Hi sgs182, when a driver fails to install correctly its best to install through windows device manager. Suggest you try this method of instillation before trying another HD audio driver. Also enter your bios & make sure the HD is enabled.
Either use the driver CD that came with the motherboard or download the driver from Biostar. Windows 2003 is more like window XP however we both know what you need is a driver for 2003. Biostar makes other P4M890-M7 motherboards that do support win 2003 for HD.
·P4M890-M7 TE 7.x ·P4M890-M7 SE 7.x ·P4M890-M7 PCI-E 7.1 ·P4M890-M7 PCI-E 7.0 ·P4M890-M7 FE 7.x
Biostar motherboards 7.0 & 7.1 audio drivers are the same file size of 24.77MB & support x86/2003 operating systems.
How to install through windows device manager?
Left click once on the start button. Slide up to & left click on control panel. Find the System icon & open it. Left click on the hardware tab than left click on the device manager button. Scroll down to Sound, video and game controller, which should already be opened. You should see a yellow explanation point here.
Right click once on the yellow ! point & left click once on update driver. Windows hardware wizard will open. Click No, not at this time. Than click the next button. Another window will open. Left click once in the circle next to, Install from a list or specific location (Advanced). Than click the next button. Again, another window will open. We want to remove the green check mark next to, Search removable media (floppy, CD-ROM...). (Only if you do not want to install from the CD).
Click the green check mark once & it will go away.
Click the browse button, click the + sign next to my computer. Find the desktop folder
You created & named. Open it. High-light the folder that has the driver in it & click ok. Windows will find the correct driver software within the folder & install it automatically. Once completed. Close all opened windows & restart you’re system. Test your audio. If you intend to use a mic, you will need to set this up through the Sounds audio device within the control panel.
