Question about Tyan Trinity 450 (S2507S) Motherboard
Keep on rebooting, machine hanged once during installation of XP professional. Try again OK but did not show mouse pointer. After that keyboard did not work. Use a usb mouse works.
Rebooting is tipical of Windows XP when there is an important error. Most of the time this error is coming from the hardware.
There is a way to know the error code that make Windows XP mad, but you have to eliminate the automatic restart option.
With your mouse right click on My Computer, select properties, select advanced and you should see something similar:
deselect Automatically restart.
At this point next time you will have the error instead of rebooting you will see a blue screen with some message at the top and some code at the bottom, please write them down and post them here.
In case you cannot even enter in Windows XP because is keeping rebooting too fast, try to do the above steps in Safe mode.
To enter in Windows in Safe mode you have to press F8 as soon as you boot and before you see the windows logo on you screen, then select safe mode and repeat the steps above.
Last but not least, please send me the exact type of motherboard, processor and memory that you are using.
