Re: can't istall xp

Check your ram memory, the winxp must have at least 128mb ram memory and a videocard with at least 32mb. if you have these your pc will boot with no problem

Windows Not Showing & Not Supporting Actual RAM installed.

make sure that you don't need to overclock your setting (in BIOS ) so as to get full ddr3 frequency.That it, you need to overclock your CPU speed and if you want to work at great speed, try you upgrade you processor.
try a core 2 duo or a quad-core and make sure that it matches with your FSB, with maximum L catch ( 12 mb)

Driver Problem


There might be 3 reasons :-

1. Download not completed due to slow speed. It would create an icon the desktop. But, when you install, it would show 'Installation Failed".

2. You haven't uninstalled all the realtek files that might have in your notebook/Desktop from the last installation.

3. Corrupted file. Try to again download realtek from sites like :-

I have IBM p6 motherboard with processor Intel 1.8ghz/256/400/1.75v Processor had demaged. I replaced with Intel 1.8ghz/512/400/1.525v When I starts the system it gave error "0167 no processor bios...

I suggest this is not going to work.
1.Your motherboard is supplying 1.75 DC volts of electricity to the processor socket.
You have installed either a SSpec number SL68Q, or SL62P,
Intel Pentium 4 processor. (The sSpec number is on the top of the processor case)

These Intel Pentium 4 processors use 1.425 to 1.525 DC volts of electricity. If you haven't already, you are going to burn this processor up.

Also, the Intel Pentium 4 that you had before, is based on the Willamette Core. (180nm) These earlier Pentium 4's did not have HT.
Hyperthreading Technology.

The Intel Pentium 4 you have in it now, is based on the Northwood Core. (130nm) These Pentium 4's come with HT.

Even if you could go into your BIOS Setup utility, and change the CPU voltage, and lower it, the HT in the processor you have now, wouldn't work on this motherboard.
(CPU stands for Central Processing Unit. Another name is Microprocessor, or simply -> Processor)

You won't be able to lower the voltage in BIOS Setup, for this processor. IF you did, then you would change the Front Bus Speed, and the ram memory wouldn't work.

Obtain an Intel Pentium 4 processor, that uses the Socket 478 processor socket, has a 400MHz FSB, and is based on the Willamette Core.

Here is a list of Willamette Core, Intel Pentium 4 Microprocessors, that will work,

Operating system installtion problem

First try to replace you memory module(s) (RAM) should you be using more than one ensure that they are both of the same frequency then when installing windows xp at the setup menu where it asks about partitions delete any present partition and formatt a new partition with the NTFS (do not use the quick formatt, use the more thorough formatt). thereafter you windows will be installed and you shouldnt have any further problems.

Up-date processor.

Check the manual for jumper settings on the cpu frontsidebus frequency. Also find out your cpus fsb or frontside bus speed and match it with the motherboards jumpers if possible.

How to find out details of the processor?
Pentium III 1ghz - download cpuz cpuz download

it will tell you more details of the cpu. If you post here a image of the cpuz screen or all the details it shows you can I tell you the correct fsb speed.

Then you need to find your motherboards manual and the part about those jumpers. and set them correctly.
