Question about ASUS P5QL-E Motherboard, LGA775, Intel P43 + ICH10R, Dual DDR2, PCIe x16, SATAII, RAID, eSATA, Gigab
I had just built a brand new computer with an Asus P5QL PRO Motherboard, an Asus EN8400GS Silent 512MB, a 1GB Kingston Ram Chip, A Seagate 40GB SATA Hard Drive, and a LG DVD drive using an HDD cable. After I built the computer I start up my computer to boot up my Windows XP Professional sp2 CD to start the installation of my Windows XP Professional sp2. During the installation it asked me if i want to partition my hard drive and I chose not to and hit the Enter key. Then it asked me if I want to delete the files form my hard drive (click "L" to delete) and i click L to delete it after deleting the files it starts install Windows XP. When the installation was done it said it will now restart my computer, during this time when it was restarting I still had my Windows XP CD in the drive. when it restarts this Error about Express Gate came up saying i need to install Express Gate. the screen showed up for only 3 seconds and it went on to the Asus Logo screen then it went on to another black screen checking my Drives and stuff. I didn't quite catch what it was saying. After the part where it checks my for my drives and stuff it went back to the screen where it boots up my Windows XP Professional CD then later I tried to restart the computer again, but this time without the CD because i thought it was in the way of loading the Windows XP boot screen. After it went past the part where it cheks for my drives, this time the screen turns black with a small blinking line on the top left corner. and that was it. the line had been blinking there for a very long time and still nothing happened.
If i did something wrong please go ahead and sovle my problem cause I am confused on how to sovle the problem.
Thanks in advance to those who have giving a solution to my problem.
Hi, I think you have not finish yet your OS installation, when installing OS just wait for it till you have see the start menu pop-up then there you go, you can now remove your installation CD. And express gate is a browser included in your ASUS motherboard that lets you boot up in seconds and enjoy your stuff even your OS is not fully loaded yet..
