Blank screen after xp welcome screen no power to keyboard

Hi, I'm working on an Asrock K7vt2 mobo with an AMD Duron 1.30ghz proc 128mb (pc133) sdram winxp. AGP 4x AMI bios v.3.31a Prob started after attempting to add 128mb more ram. I was already getting 1 beep at startup. After adding the ram, I began getting 1 beep, pause and 2 short beeps. PC will boot as far as the xp welcome screen then goes black never to get to the desktop. I also lose the keyboard at this point. I reinstalled xp, no luck same symptoms. I switched out mem for 512mb ddr still no luck. I took out cmos battery for a while (over 30mins.) Got different set of beep codes, set bios to default settings, and still same symptoms. I have also tried fixmbr with no luck. PC will boot to safe mode with a start bar and working kybd and mouse, but desktop still blank. Can anyone help, Please? Thanks...

    With the current setup, I get 1 beep a pause, then 2 short beeps. When my desktop is blank I lose my keyboard also, so I can't hit ctrl+alt+delete except in safe mode. I tried the ctrl+alt+delete in safe mode and it opened the "My Documents" folder. Oh, also, before I had this situation it was running very slow, even for 128mb and I kept getting a message for windows explorer asking me if I wanted to work offline or try and connect. This was also before I reinstalled xp. Could this be linked to my problem?

    Hey,
    I saw a post on another site where someone with the same problem was able to get a desktop with win 98. I've tried that and so far, so good. Next I think I'll try to find and install all my drivers, check my bios settings and try maybe win me or 2000 and see what happens. If that works, I'll try XP next. I'll post my results...

Ok, with your current set up, what beeps are you getting? Also, while you have a blank desktop, hit CTRL+ALT+DELETE and you'll have Task Manager come up, click File and then New Task and type in "explorer" without quotes and hit enter. That should restore your desktop. Let me know how it goes.

    Ah, when Windows Explorer asks you that, it's generally spyware that wants to hook into the Internet for some reason, sometimes to transfer activity logs or browsing habits to name a few things. As you have reinstalled the operating system to Windows XP, the spyware will now be gone, so that is not an issue to worry about.

    The beep code signifies a video card error. You may well be looking to replace your motherboard, my friend as it's unlikely 3 video cards will cause a video adaptor error on the motherboard - before you do so, please do check them on another computer, just in case.

DOES K7SOM MOTHERBOARD UPGRADABLE?


Hello here is the homepage:

http://www.ecs.com.tw/ECSWebSite/Downloads/Downloads_Driver_Detail.aspx?MenuID=61&LanID=0&detailid=79#Download-2

And the + versions:

http://www.ecs.com.tw/ECSWebSite/ECSSearch.aspx?menuid=0&lanid=0&keyword=K7SOM+

I would say no because the cpu does not exist anymore.

The only thing you can upgrade is the harddrive and the ram module.

The mainboard uses SDram and DDR ram in there own seperate block.
Sdram is hard to find and expensive.
DDRram can still be bought.

The specifications:

PROCESSORS

462 pin Socket A supports the AMD K7 processors
Full series of Athlon XP/Athlon/Duron processors
CHIPSET

SiS 740 & SiS 961/962 Chipset
SiS 740 Host/Memory controller with high quality 3D graphic accelerator

Integrated USB 2.0 host controller in SiS 962
LPC I/O -ITE8705F
LAN: MAC integrated in SiS 961/961B/962 and PHY on board
AC97 Audio Codec: Compliant with AC97 2.2 specification
SYSTEM BIOS

AMI 2MB Flash EEPROM
Supports Plug and Play 1.0A, AMP 1.2, Multi Boot, DMI
Support for ACPI revision 1.0 specification
MEMORY

2 DDR DIMM Sockets and 2 DIMM sockets support (can not be used simultaneously)
Two 184-pin 2.5V DDR SDRAM (DDR266/200) or
Two 168-pin 3.3V SDRAM (PC133/PC100)

RAM Slot does not recognize more than 512MB ( 184 )


Consider updating your motherboard bios.

http://www.asrock.com/mb/download.asp?Model=K7VT2&o=BIOS

Also make sure that your memory is correct for this system:


- Max. capacity of system memory: 2GB DDR or 2GB SDRAM
- DDR x 2, DDR266/200 non-ECC, un-buffered memory
- SDRAM x 2, PC133/100 non-ECC, un-buffered memory

I would like advice on upgrading my Graphics card


Unfortunatly your still running low end CPU power and low end agp graphics. Your going to pay 150-200 just for a fair PCIe/AGP HD/3D VC. If $200 doesnt hurt (and this is the lowest price best option), then might I suggest Mobo/CPU/RAM for around $200 that would do the trick and allow for future upgrades. You might also need a power supply. I just built one less than 3 weeks ago for a friend and it fairs against my own gaming comp.
MY PC...
AMD ATHLON 64 X2 DCP 6000+ 3.01GHz
NFORCE6M-A V:2.0
8GB PATRIOT
XFX 8800GT AD 512MB
500W PS

NEW PC....
Gigabyte GA-MA785GMT-UD2 MB $90+/-
AMD Athlon™ II X2 250 BOX 3.0GHz (CAME W/FAN)$70+/-
AND 4GB OF DDR3 1066 RAM COMPATIBLE WITH MOBO $40+/-
THE ONBOARD VIDEO IS CAPABLE OF USING 700MB
OF RAM...RGB/DVI OUT.

According to their website, the board can take:

AMD Athlon XP (Throughbred up to XP2600+)
AMD Athlon (including Thunderbird)
AMD Duron (including Morgan)


You can then overclock the processor with a BIOS upgrade available at http://www.ocworkbench.com/2002/ecs/k7s5abios/cheepobios.htm.

It has one 4X AGP slot so it can take any AGP video card, assuming the card is backwards compatible (8x -> 4x).

K7VT2 with a AMD Duron 1.30 GHz CPU.


Depends on which AMD processor you would use. If Duron you could go to 1.8Ghz. If you use Athlon XP you could go to 3200+. Athlon MP 2.1Ghz and regular Athlon 1.4Ghz.
