Try going into safe mode and uninstall the intel chipset and reboot and see if you can get back into windows.

    Since you can't get into windows or get into safe mode, you'll have to restore your computer back to factory defaults, did your laptop come with the recover discs.

Power failed during MSI P67A-C43 B3 bios update


Download the latest BIOS update from your computer manufacturer's website onto a USB flash drive. Refer to your user manual to obtain the manufacturer's website address. If the downloaded BIOS file is a zip archive, unzip the contents onto your USB flash drive. Jumper settings may need to be reconfigured on some motherboards to enter BIOS recovery mode. Most Intel-based motherboards have a jumper setting or switch near the on-board CMOS battery. The procedure for setting the jumpers will vary depending on your motherboard make and model, so refer to the motherboard documentation for specific instructions. Power on the computer and press "F2" to access the Setup Mode menu. If you are unable to access the setup menu, you will not be able to proceed with this repair. Take your computer to a repair shop, as the motherboard may need to be replaced. Use the arrow key to select "Boot Priority" or a similarly named field. Press the "Enter" key. Scroll down until "First boot priority" or "First boot drive" is selected and press "Enter." Select the USB flash drive as the first boot priority device. Press the "F10" key to save this setting and exit from the setup menu. Connect the USB flash drive to an open USB port on your computer. Then let your computer fully reboot. The USB flash drive should be detected and the BIOS should update automatically. When the update is complete, you may be prompted to restart your computer, or it may reboot automatically. If you are able to use your computer without any further problems of overheating or failure to recognize drives, your failed BIOS update has been resolved.

HOW to install windows xp on intel dh61ho motherboad


Hello here is the homepage:

http://downloadcenter.intel.com/SearchResult.aspx?lang=eng&ProductFamily=Desktop+Boards&ProductLine=Intel%C2%AE+6+Series+Chipset+Boards&ProductProduct=Intel%C2%AE+Desktop+Board+DH61HO

In general, what you'll need to do is:
  • Turn off your computer.
  • Power on again
  • When you see the splash screen or BIOS menu (and before Windows starts to load), hit the Delete key.
This will typically either get you into a boot device menu or the BIOS settings where you should be able to select the device you want to boot from to adjust the boot order. In other words, your computer may normally try to boot first from the hard drive drive.But now you have to select to boot from the dvd drive. Save the changes, and then boot your computer again, this time without hitting any button and lay the windows disk in the dvd drive. If all goes according to plan, you should soon see a "Windows loading" message on your screen and press any key to install windows.You can follow the on-screen instructions to install Windows on your computer.
You also need to make a full format of the harddrive, and reboot again.

Look also in the manual how to setup the bios.

Here is some youtube video that shows how:

http://www.youtube.com/results?search_query=how+to+install+windows+xp&oq=HOW+to+install+windows+xp&gs_l=youtube.1.0.0l10.1637.1637.0.3243.1.1.0.0.0.0.122.122.0j1.1.0...0.0...1ac.2.LqJatFrFwa4

When the installation is done, you have to install all the driver for the mainboard.Graphic,sound,chipset etc.

Good luck

I have a Acer Extensa 5630, with windows xp running on it. There are two missing drivers Mobile Intel(R) 4 series Express Chipset Family and Audio Device on High Definition Audio Bus. I have already tried...


After doing the Updates from Acer it is also necessary to follow with Windows Updates as well. Windows Updates is where you will find the Audio Bus Drivers. And possibly the most current Compatible Chipset Drivers for XP. If there are no Updates available for you to Install, Then we will manually update the drivers through Device Manager if needed. Click the folllowing link for Windows Updates Website. BE SURE TO CHOOSE THE "CUSTOM" OPTION. After the scan completes and the results are listed, Look at the LEFT PANE under HARDWARE as well as SOFTWARE Results. Put a Check Mark next to any that appear in those two sections. OK?

ALSO, I have One More question to ask you. When you downloaded the Drivers from the Acer Website, did you download the files to the Desktop? If so, Prior to double clicking on the Icon to begin installing, You MUST do the following: 1) Take your mouse and right click on the icon. 2) click on Properties (at bottom) 3) after the Properties Window opens, Click on the "UNLOCK" button. 4) click APPLY & OK to close window. Do this for EACH DOWNLOAD before installing.
NOW YOU ARE READY TO DOUBLE CLICK ON THE ICON AND BEGIN INSTALLING SOFTWARE. IN FACT, MAYBE YOU SHOULD BEGIN WITH THIS FIRST, and if they still don't work, follow with the other suggestions at the top of this page.. OK? GREAT LUCK & PLEASE DON'T FORGET TO RATE MY SOLUTION.. Thank You :)

I have reinstalled the software on my Inspiron 9100. Everything installs fine until I install either the Intel chipset drivers or XP SP2 or SP3 updates and then after a reboot the screen displays...


Sounds like a problem with the Video Driver...You can always opt out of installing the chipset driver as really the computer can run without it. Does the Dell website have alternative chipset drivers for this model besides the Intel one? If so try it.
