Re: rebooting

Hi, Even with just 128mb of memory, you should be able to complete the XP install albeit a bit slow. If system reboots in the middle of an install, there can possibly be 4 problems: 0. Video card - if an add-on PCI-E/AGP video card is present, it may be defective or overheating; 1. Memory - you may need to try a different memory (not necessarily bigger but of course that would be better); 2. Hard Disk - heating up after some time and becomes unrecognized by the motherboard; and/or 3. Motherboard - overheating component, CPU chipsets (if new, claim warranty replacement). Could also be a fan problem or CMOS/BIOS setting for CPU fan temp control. Most common I've run across with are blistered, swollen, burst capacitors. These are the cylindrical components that comes in varying diameters and heights. Very near the CPU itself would be a couple of these components. Normally the top should be shiny, very flat with an X or Y indentation. Those swollen, burst or show signs of brownish stain are defective and can no longer hold a charge and do its function/purpose. Unfortunately, the normal course of action is to replace the motherboard. The capacitors themselves can be replaced but that would require a very very patient and careful tech who is very familiar with soldering, desoldering pump and knowledge of PCB layouts. Hope this be of some idea/help. Post back how things turn up or should you need further information. Good luck and kind regards.

Installing sound drivers

First, visit this website:

Next up select Windows XP Professional as your operating system. Now click, "Drivers." The first result should be the Realtek drivers, which are what you're searching for. Download them. Once they finished downloading open the file and the drivers should be installed automatically.

If there's anything else I can help you with, let me know. If this solution solved your problem, please rate the solution.

RAM cuantity

The motherboard you mentioned supports DDR1 RAM.

For windows xp and general application 512 MB is enough.
But if you use memory intensive applications like image/video editing then you can opt for 1-2 GB RAM.

DG965RY board can not reboot with 'restart' button on windows Xp

Run with only two RAMS each in one of the DIMM slots. Three RAMS may not work unless supported by mobo or being exactly identical in their specs..

I have a P3 at 500MHz and was wondering with this Motherboard,

The motherboard has three, dual in-line memory module (DIMM) sockets. Minimum memory size is 16 MB; maximum memory size is 768 MB. The largest DIMM supported at this time is 256 MB using unbuffered 128 Mbit technology parts. The BIOS automatically detects memory type, size, and speed.

The motherboard supports the following memory features:
  • 168-pin DIMMs with gold-plated contacts
  • 66 or 100 MHz SDRAM
  • Non-ECC (64-bit) and ECC (72-bit) memory
  • 3.3 V memory only
  • Unbuffered Single- or double-sided DIMMs in the following sizes:

DIMM Size Non-ECC Configuration ECC Configuration 16 MB 2M x 64 2M x 72 32 MB 4M x 64 4M x 72 64 MB 8M x 64 8M x 72 128 MB 16M x 64 16M x 72 256MB 32M x 64 32M x 72

Synchronous DRAM (SDRAM) can be installed in one, two, or three sockets. EDO DIMMs are not supported. Memory size and speed can vary between sockets.

Note: Intel® Pentium® II processors with 100 MHz front-side bus should be paired only with 100 MHz SDRAM. Processors with 66 MHz front-side bus can be paired with either 66 MHz or 100 MHz SDRAM.

All memory components and DIMMs used with the Intel® SE440BX-2 motherboard should comply with the PC SDRAM specifications. These include: the PC SDRAM Specification (memory component specific), the PC Unbuffered DIMM Specification, and the PC Serial Presence Detect Specification.

Note: It is recommended that SPD memory DIMMs be used with the SE440BX-2 motherboard. However, the BIOS will allow the use of non-SPD DIMM memory.

So the max you can go is 3 x 256 MB.

Thanks and please take a moment to rate fixya.
