Re: windows xp

Do you see the hard drive in you bios? This is where to start. If you can not see it in the bios check the hard drive pins to see if you have it set ( master or slave ).


If you do see it in the bios you may have to check with asus to see if there is a special driver needed when installing windows XP.

Re: windows xp

Kgprakash, Did you check your BIOS's Main Page to see if the board is reqognizing the drive correctly? If so did you change from Master setting to Cable Select or vice versa? Some drives don't like to play nice. Have you access to a differnt drive, just to see if XP finds it. If you have SATA or Raid capabilities on the board read the manual this messed me up for awhile (the Asus I use has 6 internal Sata ports and one IDE legacy connector). If you only have IDE, are you in the connector marked or known as IDE0? Just some thoughts.... Pcdok

you have to keep a computer very clean & free of dust and give it regular maintenance

also you might download and use this registry cleaner it is 100% totally free to use

and you might need to uninstall some unnecessary programs
right click in the bottom toolbar select task manager applications you will see whats running
also in processes see whats ticking over
do have any tune up programs installed on your computer

*********** supports DDR1 type Ram, you can easily get it from the market. Just ask the retailer to give you the DDR1 Ram, they will ask you how much memory of Ram you want. There are 256Mb, 512Mb, 1gb, 2gb, etc.. the more the better and this motherboard supports upto 2 gb, but some newer make of this motherboard miht have been changed.

My system is hanged after few minutes

Well the issue could either be with the bas sectors on hard disk or faulty RAM or a burned capacitor on the motherboard.

The very first thing I would suggest you is to reinstall windows operating system.If the issue persists then run the system with another RAM and observe the performance.

if the issue persists then it could be with the motherboard or the power supply. Manually check the capacitors on the board for any leaking or faulty capcitors.

Let me know if you need any further assistance

I have an asus k8v-mx motherboard running only 512 mb of ram what type of ram would suit this mother board and could i fit a 1 x 2mb ram instead of 2 x 1mb?

Dear Sir,

*********** board is Asus old p4 Mother board.It supports maximum 1GB RAM of DDR 400(DDR1). According to your post your computer having only one 512 MB working RAM. If you want good purformance you can upgrade your computer by purchasing another 512MB DDR400 RAM and install it on another RAM slot.If your computer have only one working RAM slot,you can purchase 1GB DDR400 RAM & install it on older RAM place. I think it solves your problem.if you have any problem come back with more information. I will try to assist you more accurately.

good luck
