Problem installling Windows xp SP2 with P4VMA-M Mainboard

Hi

My mom has a P4VMA-M Mainboard but I don't remember which version it is. The problem is that I'd tried to install windows xp with service pack 2 but after the instalation when the pc reboots, it stops when it's charging windows, in the image of "Widows" with the black background.
I'd also tried installing sp2 over windows xp wit sp1, and happens the same thing.

Can you help me please?
Thank you

If your trying to install it over the current installation then select Format at the installation screen of XP setup. In order to do that you would have to boot from the disc, that way you don't have to load windows. Also when you have completed and installed XP, try to locate some software to detect what drivers you need. I use driver detective and it worked fine for me, or alternately send me a message and ill run you through how to check the motherboard for the version manually.

Hi Just installed a new Biostar MCP6P-M2 motherboard and cant the sound to work for the life of me.


I think you installed windows xp sp3, try re installing with windows xp sp2 because microsoft removed support for high definition audio in sp3 version of xp, if you dont want to re-install or you want to use sp3, download the high definition audio update (kb835221.exe).

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.
http://support.asus.com/download/download.aspx?modelname=M2N-MX&SLanguage=en-us
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).

Motherboard upgrade??


Dear kaname,

Your computer can support Windows XP, which has better hardware support and compatibility with the 2003 Office suit. XP also updates your hardware automatically once you are on the internet. You might want to try this.

Keep in mind that the older the Operating System, the harder it is for Office suites to compat. Newer Operating systems have better support for your computing. If you don't have HDD problems, the BIOS should not prevent you from loading SP2 for Win2000.

Conclusion:

1. The SP2 Source Disk may have a problem
2. The Win 2000 you have already loaded may be missing components, preventing the SP2 to load.
2. Notton Antivirus versions and the 2003 office both reject Win 2000. They just don't like it; it's getting too old.

Get with it, Kaname!!!!
