Boot into the BIOS and look at the settings. Is the correct hard drive selected as the boot device? Are the IDE settings correct? Does it have an SATA or PATA hard drive?

When you change motherboards it's a good idea to write down the BIOS settings of the old board before you remove it. Probably too late for that now.

Hello. I recently bought a new motherboard, fmb-0703; and windows will not load. It starts, but does not fully load. I'm running windows 7 pro 32 bit. Bios boots, every works except windows

I could be a couple of things. If it is not loading correctly More than likely something to do with memory either motherboard ram or video ram. try a live boot cd and see if it loads like hirams boot cd with live windows. it is free. also you can the motherboard and ram and hard drive the the live cd to pinpoint hardware problems. just a thought. good luck.

Foxconn G31MV board problem. Have 4gb of Ram and a 2.6 Duo core, have just installed a EVGA Geforce 210 1gb into the pcie slot and WIndows wouldnt start up. It went strait to repair or start normally...

The motherboard should support 4gb of ram. Was the computer working before the installation of the video card. This motherboard has integrated graphics on it, this means when you install a new graphics card you have to enable it in the bios(and disable the integrated graphics) the instructions should have come with the card as well as the installation drivers. Normally before you pop the video card in you should setup windows and install the drivers then when they are installed you put the video card in the slot.

If you are installing the ram for the first time you should check if the system recognizes the memory be going into the bios settings and looking at system memory if not I would recommend re-installing the ram.

Have an EVGA nForce 680i. Bought 2x 2 GB 6400 800Mhz of ram to replace 2x 1 GB sticks. However when I start up the system it only reads that I have 2874 MB of RAM. So I figured maybe one of the sticks is...


The reason its only seeing just under 3GB of memory is no doubt because you are using a 32BIT operating system (probably XP).
If you were to install Win 7 (X32) or a 64BIT operating system the computer would see all 4GB of RAM you have installed.

Its nothing to worry about though as the computer will work just fine. If you were to check in the BIOS you would see all 4GB of memory is there and see by the BIOS.

Installed 4 G of RAM. Installed Windows 7. Only 3 G RAM Usable

To recognize more than 3GB of RAM you will need a 64 bit version of the operating system. If you install Windows 7 32 bit (normal for most users) you will only see 3.
You should have both versions of Windows 7 (32bit and 64 bit) on your installation disk. However you will need a 64 bit capable processor to install it. Otherwise 3GB of RAM for a 32 bit operating system is more than enough.

P5k motherboard

remove the ram, do you hear beeps?

if link broken click here

Reseing the bios shouldn't be a problem go ahead, or is there something I don't know? does it void the warranty? I don't think so.
