This sounds like you tried to reinstall Windows 98 over the top of an old installation rather than a fresh reformatting of the hard-drive and THEN a reinstallation. You will need to boot from the Windows 98 CD-ROM, FORMAT your hard drive and THEN install Windows 98 as most looping reboot issues have to do with 98 RE-installs over the top of an old installation.

It could be a memory related problem. Try to test your memory module by installing it to a different system that is surely working. If that system restarts, then you must replace the memory module.

Hi i just built a new PC with 2 x 2gig memory now under computer properties it says 4 gig installed but only 2.99 gig useable and the new motherboard will support upto 16 gig. Using Windows 7 Ultimate...


Hi,
Looks like one of the 2gb mem card you bought and installed is defective.
Check each one and clean the gold terminals using a pencil rubber eraer, clean it an install it again, move it to side to side just to perfectly fit the contacts.
If both mem card is working the problem would be the memory socket terminal, either it is dirty or the pin connector is burned.
If one is not working, return the mem card and have them replace it.

Hope FixYa helps you out!

Cpu speed for ddr 400 ram


cpu speed has nothing to do with ram. they are completely independant. ram speed is important to the FSB (front serial bus) this is the speed at which your motherboard communicates with the devives attached to it. cpu speed refers to how fast a cpu can process info. or how fast it "thinks". most motherboards have the capability of upgrading cpu's. your mobo (motherboard will support the following cpu's:
any pentium 4 up to 3.0 ghz
it supports the following ram
ddr (nott ddr 2 or 3) up to 2 gigs (1 gig each slot) of 533mhz speed (or less)
it also supports up to 2 gigs of sdram either pc133 or pc100
you are using 400 speed ram as you stated i would upgrade to a 533 speed ram as it will be faster, but this is not necessary. as for the cpu just get any P4 (pentium 4) that is 3.0 ghz or less and it will work.

I cannot configure a SATA RAID 1 to mirror two WD HDD 1 TB


You sure you installed the ASUS RAID drivers when you installed Windows? Ya need to get the drivers off the ASUS disk, transfer them to a floppy, hit F6 when windows tells you to (during windows install...you only have a second or 2 to see the message!)) and use the floppy to install them. Might take a few tries to get it right.

Can I use Pentium 4, frequency 3.0 GHz with Asus P4B?


Asus support says the fastest CPU you can use in that MB is a P4 2.6 GHz or a Celeron 2.8 GHz.

For the P4 you need BIOS ver. 1011 and for the Celeron you need ver. 1013.004.

Here is a link to the entire list:

Windows 98 on P4 DC


Hi there

No ways , first of all Windows 98 doesn't recognise sata drives and will not boot even from a sata dvd writer, there are no drivers for Windows 98 to display correctly and you will have trouble running Windows 98 above 256 MB RAM

I don't have mother board cd


Hi, I am confused regarding the model of the Mother board
you have:

The P5S800-VM is an LGA775 socket mother-board for a
Pentium 4 CPU.

P4-515, on the other hand, does not return any hits on the
Asus web-site search.

===

I think your best solution is to contact ASUS /USA:

1-888-678-3688

and talk to customer support.

They will guide you in identifying the exact motherboard you
have, so you can download the driver set from their
support site.

BTW.

I think you computer performance is very unbalanced at 256 MB.
This is not nearly enough memory to run with such a fast CPU,
(2.93 Gigs), and your machine must be terribly disk bound:

1) When your operating system runs out of semiconductor
memory, it begins to thrash to disk, which is 10 million times
slower then RAM, making the fast CPU a total waste of
money.

2) For a normal machine running Windows and a 3Gig CPU
you should have at least 1 GB of RAM, preferably 2GB
(RAM is cheap these days)

But before I put my foot too deep into my mouth, I notice that
you are running FREEDOS, does that mean you are running
DOS only (No Windows ?) for some specialized application ?

ASUS P4S533 mother board not supporting full 160 gb


This is happing becuase of your motherboards BIOS !
Really, this happened to me too. You see, our motherboards which are very old cant support above 80 and so on. This is beacuse of the BIOS. You will need to update your BIOS inorder to give new features.

Try go to the Asus home page and download the latest driver for your motherboard. Then install it in your motherboard's BIOS. There is intructions for this in the Asus's home page.
