Question about Intel Motherboard
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.
