Depending on the BIOS type, there must be a method to disable IDE-0 from booting. If no method found, try booting from floppy disc and then run setup.exe from CD. Try to find this in the BIOS settings, then enable it again after you have fixed the Windows.

Dell Optiplex 330,won't boot memory parity error, tried new bios battery, new ram stick, still won't boot,actually had two at same time the other I ran a advanced diagnostic test said hard driv


I found this

Customer's Optiplex 330 did the same thing today; no beep codes (due to lack of on board speaker). Solid/orange light on front of case indicates board or cpu. I isolated every component not soldered down (RAM, HDD, Optical, etc). Considering all the fans and lights on the MoBo were functioning, and no physical damage to the CPU was apparent, and the BSOD presented the "memory parity error; system halted" (meaning it's memory, graphics memory, or cpu and we've eliminated possibly CPU and RAM) my conclusion is that the problem resides in Graphics memory failure. Considering the error message is very vague and generally insists "motherboard", the gpu in an optiplex 330 is integrated ON the board, lumping it all together.

and general memory parity fail information

I'm upgrade memory in a ECS P4-M935DLU, with SiS650GX from 256MB memory to 2GB memory. Computer see's the new 2GB memory when I boot up, but in a short time the computer re-boots. It keeps re-booting. Do...


You don't say what you mean by "a short time."
have you gone into the CMOS setup to see if the settings are good?
Does Windows actually start? If not, put a Windows system disk in and boot from it and do a scandisk from it.
Did you leave the old memory in? If so, remove it an just use the new memory.
You can also check to see what is going on by placing the old memory back in and see if it works. If it does, go into control panel, admin tools, and event log. Check to see what might have been recorded there to get an idea why it's cycling.

Mother board is ak77 pro 133 vt8233 will not run xp proI


Hi,
The BSOD (blue screen of death) usually means that a computer component has failed. This could be a hard disc drive, a memory module, the cpu, or the motherboard. I would start by checking out the hard drive first. See if it is spinning and not making any clicking sounds. Try replacing it if you have another one. Then check memory and cpu. Some people actually like having an old computer hanging around. They install Windows 98 in it so they can play old dos games and games that don't require a blazing fast processor! Good luck...Hank

Windows xp will not boot


If you just installed windows then take the cd out and let the computer reboot on its own. Windows will ask you to replace the OS disk later.

So just restart the computer with nothing in the CD drive.

Also make sure in BIOS that the Hard drive is the first boot device. Don't need the CD drive as first anymore.

See if that helps.

Abit Fatal1y FP-IN9 Boot Problem!?


check your jumper settings. You can probably view jumper diagram online. Make sure all drivers are downloaded and up to date. Try placing windows installation disc in before booting pc. Also check boot setting to make sure hardrive boots second and cd boots first. Also make sure your hard drive jumper is set to master.

After installing new motherboard and processor my pc doesn't booting. no beeping, no display, no sound but it seem it works, because the cpu fan run well.


Hi achmadjanupe, please include in this post the manufacture & model number of your new motherboard. (That will help a lot).
You must first clear the cmos by moving the cmos jumper to clear & wait at least 10 seconds, than move the jumper back to normal. (See your manual for this).
After installing a new motherboard & CPU it is not uncommon for windows not to boot & you will not hear a POST beep. Try removing your system memory & reseating it. If you have an AGP or PCI-Express video card, do the same. If you are using the same hard disk drive from the older MB & CPU you'll have to do a fresh install of windows, (Including a format of your hdd). Its a very bad idea to install newer drivers over old drivers for a newer board.
The only exception to this would be if the new motherboard is exactly the same as the old motherboard. Once you gain display, go directly into the bios & make sure your hdd is listed in the boot order.
If your hard disk drive is large enough. You can add a new partition within the free space of your drive & install your new windows onto that partition. When you boot to your windows CD follow the instructions on screen to create a new partition within the free space of your hdd. By doing this you'll be able to save all the old data within your old windows drive. You'll be able to copy & past your old data over to your new installation. Once all your data has been copied to your new windows you can delete the old windows & old partition by booting again with the windows CD. Windows can delete the old partition.
There is far too much information, drivers & registry information already in windows. If you try to run your old windows with the new board it will go crazy & you’ll have nothing but trouble.

Good luck achmadjanupe!
This will take some time to complete.
I'm sure you may have more questions, post them here.

OS does not boot


Hello there.

Most likely the new stick(s) of memory is causing problems in your system. To verify this i would remove the newly added ram and see if the problem goes away.

Also you can download and run a memory test called 'memtest86+' from here. This can be burned to a cd and booted from the computer, to run a diagnostic on the new memory.

Hope this helps.

Not booting up


The OS doesn't like all the changes that were made. To keep people from cloning hard drives and putting them in whatever machine they want, microsoft winxp recognizes even subtle changes, upgraded cpu, memory video cards etc.

  1. put the hard drive in the old machine
  2. run link
  3. Software
  4. click on Installed Program
  5. click on licenses
  6. .click on report
  7. quick report licenses html
  8. click on print
  9. select page 1
These are the key codes for your machine,
now put hard drive in new machine, boot with xp pro cd and choose repair option. re-enter key code when prompted and telephone Microsoft in activation wizard.

ASUS P5N-E SLI AND A GF7600 ..BOOTING PROBLEMS ..CORRUPTS


Hi, trying to boot from your old drives is the problem.
The Boot sequence for your new board are different from the ol one. Your sequence to get your system going is to load the mobo drivers first, then run your XP disk again and at the second prompt select REPAIR this will run the same as a normal install but should save your existing data and settings.
One problem you may have is activating XP as Microsoft do not approve of multi installs and the new board will show as a different computer.
