Hi
The board is an Asrock board, socket 478, and therefore quite elderly. You can download a manual for this board here.
ASRock P4i65GV
This error is quite common and can often relate to Hardware, but is given for a variety of reasons and has a variety of solutions. I give a few below:
1. Enter BIOS (usually Del or F2 during early boot) and set to default settings. Whilst in BIOS check that hard drive, optical drive, and memory are all accurately detected. Reboot and see if they work.
2. Clear CMOS, the manual will tell you how to do this. It is usually a 2/3 pin header with a jumper across 2 of the pins. To clear the CMOS the jumper usually is moved to the other 2 pins under certain conditions.
3. If you have more than one memory module try them each individually. Turning off the computer and rebooting with each one on its own.
4. Try rebooting after disconnecting the hard drive.
Don't forget whenever working inside the machine turn it off, disconnect from the mains and make sure you are grounded do that there is no static around which may damage parts.
Having tried the above you are heading towards the realm of CPU failure or part of the motherboard having failed, and needing replacement for the computer to work and I doubt the economic sense of this, unless you get used parts from eBay or something like that. The money my be better being put toward a new or better 2nd user machine.
Hope something here works

You need to flash your bios before it becomes totally corrupted. You are losing small bits of information that your motherboard needs to continue functioning.
I have what i believe is the proper page for your bios, but your exact model doesn't show up when I search the site, so the best solution for your problem is the MSI live bios update located at the bottom of this webpage:

http://www.msi.com/index.php?func=downloaddetail&type=bios&maincat_no=1&prod_no=1150

Simply install that and allow it to automatically fix your bios for you.

UnKnow Bios error Error Code =8302 Sr, Computer Opening No Display ....F1 Press Continue Display Ok


Hi, this can be caused by a BIOS update or a faulty motherboard battery. You can reset BIOS to default settings by pressing the F1 key during bootup, which will take you to the BIOS screen.

Asus bios problem


Unless there is a compelling reason to update the bios it should be left alone. Apparently this is one reason for that sage advice.

Go back to asus, download an older version of the bios and install it. Fortunately you didn't end up unable to boot or you would be buying a new board.

Problem after updating asus bios


The first thing I would try is to clear CMOS. Either set the jumper on the motherboard to do this, or even remove the battery, and wait half an hour or so. When installing a new CPU, and even RAM, you should always clear CMOS.

A disk read error occured


Your system BIOS no longer recognizes your processor. I'm going to assume you haven't replaced the processor recently, in which case it is a bios error. Can you enter the bios on startup, or does this occur before that? On most computers there will be a message saying something along the lines of "press F1 to enter setup" - of course, it could be F1, F2, F10, F11, F12, DEL or ESC... or possibly another key Try hitting all of those and see if it takes you to a BIOS menu. If you can't get to the BIOS, you're going to have to replace the motherboard. If you can get into the bios, you may be able to detect your processor from there. Without knowing specifically what bios you are using, or what motherboard so I could find the bios information, I can't say more. If you can get into the BIOS, it should tell you what version it is (usually on the top somewhere). Get me that information and we can go from there. If you can't get into the BIOS, it's time to replace your motherboard. Or, honestly, for a system of that age it might be cheaper to just buy a new (or used) computer to replace it.
