I'm installing a biostar a78ldm2s and everything turns on but I keep getting a read disk error on the hard drives that I try to use. I've tried 5 different hard drives and get the same result.

Hello here you can download a manual:

By entering the right mainboard number.

Try to set the bios to factory settings.Load default settings.
And set the boot order: first boot device:dvd, second, the harddrive.
If you are using a IDE drive make sure its set as master.
A sata drive does not have that function.
Make sure the windows disk is clean and without scratces.

Here is a youtube video that shows you how:

Good luck

Mss32.dll missing on my pc

There are several different ways that mss32.dll errors can show up on your computer. Here are some of the more common ways that you might see mss32.dll errors:
  • "Mss32.dll Not Found"

  • "This application failed to start because mss32.dll was not found. Re-installing the application may fix this problem."

  • "Cannot find [PATH]\mss32.dll"

  • "The file mss32.dll is missing."

  • "Cannot start [APPLICATION]. A required component is missing: mss32.dll. Please install [APPLICATION] again."

Mss32.dll error messages might appear while using or installing certain programs, when Windows starts or shuts down, or maybe even during a Windows installation.
The context of the mss32.dll error is an important piece of information that will be helpful while solving the problem.
Cause of Mss32.dll Errors Mss32.dll errors are caused by situations that lead to the removal or corruption of the mss32.dll file.
In some cases, mss32.dll errors could indicate a registry problem, a virus or malware issue or even a hardware failure.
How to Fix Mss32.dll Errors Important: Do not download mss32.dll from a "DLL download" website. There are many reasons why downloading a DLL file is a bad idea. If you need a copy of mss32.dll, it's best to obtain it from its original, legitimate source. Note: Start Windows in Safe Mode to complete any of the following steps if you're unable to access Windows normally due to the mss32.dll error.
  1. Restore mss32.dll from the Recycle Bin: The easiest possible cause of a "missing" mss32.dll file is that you've mistakenly deleted it.
    If you suspect that you've accidentally deleted mss32.dll but you've already emptied the Recycle Bin, you may be able to recover mss32.dll with a free file recovery program.
    Important:Recovering a deleted copy of mss32.dll with a file recovery program is a smart idea only if you're confident you've deleted the file yourself and that it was working properly before you did that.
  2. Run a virus/malware scan of your entire system: Some mss32.dll errors could be related to a virus or other malware infection on your computer that has damaged the DLL file. It's even possible that the mss32.dll error you're seeing is related to a hostile program that's masquerading as the file.
  3. Use System Restore to undo recent system changes: If you suspect that the mss32.dll error was caused by a change made to an important file or configuration, a System Restore could solve the problem.
  4. Reinstall the program that uses the mss32.dll file: If the mss32.dll DLL error occurs when you use a particular program, reinstalling the program should replace the file.
    Important: Try your best to complete this step. Reinstalling the program that provides the mss32.dll file, if possible, is a likely solution to this DLL error.
  5. Update the drivers for hardware devices that might be related to mss32.dll. If, for example, you're receiving a "The file mss32.dll is missing" error when you play a 3D video game, try updating the drivers for your video card.
    Note: The mss32.dll file may or may not be related to video cards - this was just an example. The key here is to pay very close attention to the context of the error and troubleshoot accordingly.
  6. Roll back a driver to a previously installed version: if mss32.dll errors began after updating a particular hardware device's driver.
  7. Run the sfc /scannow System File Checker command: to replace a missing or corrupt copy of the mss32.dll file. If this DLL file is provided my Microsoft, the System File Checker tool should restore it.
  8. Install any available Windows updates: Many service packs and other patches replace or update some of the hundreds of Microsoft distributed DLL files on your computer. The mss32.dll file could be included in one of those updates.
  9. Test your memory and then test your hard drive: I've left the majority of hardware troubleshooting to the last step, but your computer's memory and hard drive are easy to test and are the most likely components that might cause mss32.dll errors as they fail.
    Note: If the hardware fails any of your tests, replace the memory or replace the hard drive as soon as possible.
  10. Repair your installation of Windows: If the individual mss32.dll file troubleshooting advice above is unsuccessful, performing a startup repair or repair installation should restore all Windows DLL files to their working versions.
  11. Use a free registry cleaner to repair mss32.dll related issues in the registry. A free registry cleaner program may be able to help by removing invalid mss32.dll registry entries that might be causing the DLL error.
    Important: I rarely recommend the use of registry cleaners. I've included the option here as a "last resort" attempt before the destructive step coming up next.
  12. Perform a clean installation of Windows: A clean install of Windows will erase everything from thehard driveand install a fresh copy of Windows. If none of the steps above correct the mss32.dll error, this should be your next course of action.
    Important: All the information on your hard drive will be erased during a clean install. Make sure you've made the best attempt possible to fix the mss32.dll error using a troubleshooting step prior to this one.
  13. Troubleshoot for a hardware problem if any mss32.dll errors persist. After a clean install of Windows, your DLL problem can only be hardware related.
Applies To The mss32.dll error message could apply to any program or system that might utilize the file on any of Microsoft's operating systems including Windows 7, Windows Vista, Windows XP, and Windows 2000.

Still Having Mss32.dll Issues? Let a community of computer support enthusiasts help out! Post the details of your mss32.dll issue in the PC Support Forum. Be sure to let us know the exact mss32.dll error message that you're seeing and what steps, if any, you've already taken to fix the problem.

Motherboard for hp pavilion xt963 is there away to tell if its bad

It's very possible that your hard drive is dead. If you get a prompt when booting it such as F1 then the motherboard is working (so far), therefore it means the BIOS is ok and also that your CPU is ok if not nothing will show on your screen. If pressing F1 gives you boot options then select CD. If it won't boot from your CD force it by actually going into BIOS setup and selecting CD as primary boot drive then press F10 to save. (if BIOS setup options don't show when booting try pressing F10 or F8 and any other function keys after F1.
Make sure you have the installation disk. If the PC still doesn't boot or detect it you should try another CD/DVD drive, yours might be bad or buy or borrow a DVD/USB external drive and select it as boot drive in BIOS. Often I've seen that when booting if either the hard drive is bad or your operating system is corrupted it will prompt F1 because it cannot detect either. If OS is corrupted you will be unable to get to safe mode especially if the hard drive is bad, the recovery partition is on that hard drive and safe mode is a Windows program not BIOS.
After you've tried connecting a different CD drive to install your OS you should be able to at least see the Windows installation or whatever operating system you use asking to begin installing. If the installation fails then we move on to the hard drive; take it out and put a new one then try again.
If none of these help then there might be a circuit shorted out on the motherboard which can cause some things to work but not others although this is rare. Lastly I don't know what you meant by USB in your question because unless you have a bootable USB drive the system isn't going to do anything with it anyway.
By the way someone here mentioned RAM memory. BIOS should still show even if your memory is gone but some systems are quirky so this needs to be tested as well. I could go further if you had posted your system's specifications such as how many sticks of RAM you're using. Try dusting off your the inside of your computer with compressed air. Dust acumulation tends to cause weird behavior on a computer.

First you might need to have service pack 3
XP Service pack 3

a slight overhaul of your computer

second clean your computer of dust using a fine air blower from a compressor specifically around your CPU central processing unit making sure there is no MOISTURE in the airline

as dust will cause a lot of static which will make a computer overheat and cause lots of problems

test or replace all the leads that attach to your hard drive including electrical extensions IDE SATA the ones that attach from your motherboard to hard drive make sure they have secure dust free connections
make sure all leads that are attached to your drives dvd\cd 3 1/2 inch floppy have secure connections and are not faulty

then click start run type cmd then type chkdsk/r/f which will automatically scan for and attempt to repair bad sectors and fix any corrupt files this will schedule to happen on restart

another way of running the chkdsk utility

click start control panel administrative tools computer management ,disk management right click on your drive select properties click tools you should see click check now click start two boxes automatically fix files and scan for and attempt recovery of bad sectors place then a tick in both boxes then select check now start should schedule this task when restart

you should not do anything while the chkdsk utility is in progress any input may damage your computer your hard drive then defragment your hard drive

you have to keep a computer very clean & free of dust and give it regular maintenance

also you might download and use this registry cleaner it is 100% totally free to use

and you might need to uninstall some unnecessary programs
right click in the bottom toolbar select task manager applications you will see whats running
also in processes see whats ticking over
do have any tune up programs installed on your computer

Are you trying to install this OS (Operating System) , or is it already installed on a hard drive?
If you are installing it, make sure you change the boot order to the optical drive (DVD drive). If it's already installed, was it installed with an OEM disk? If yes, then you might need a new Windows XP disc. This is because, when using an OEM disc, if you change the hard drive or motherboard, it doesn't really work.

I am getting a disk 1/0 error and am not confident at all with computers. How can I fix this so my son can use the computer? My PC is about 6 years old and I only ever used it 9-10 times


A..Access the BIOS setup by pressing the key designated for your BIOS at Startup? It can be Del/F1/F2 or whatever and will be shown on Boot Screen before Windows is loaded.
B. Do you have a Win98 Boot Diskette proven to work well in a PC?
If so:
1.With the Win98 Boot Diskette in the Floppy Drive, Restart the PC.
2. Press the BIOS key [Eg:Del] enter BIOS setup
Check for correct YYYY/MM/DD and Time for your Time Zone and proceed to take a good look at the entries of your IDE devices and Floppy Drive with special attention to your Hard Drive(s) in IDE section. If they are all properly identified and normal, you can EXIT the BIOS. [ It does not mattere "Save changes" or "don't save changes" as you have not made any changes.]
3. Wait for Boot Disk to be accessed and Windows Startup Menu to appear with the Options:
1.Start Computer with CD-ROM support.
2.Start Computer without CD-ROM support
3. Help File
4. Select the option,1.Start Computer with CD-ROM support. and ENTER
5. Watch the screen for CD-ROM driver installed successfully" and "Diagnostic Tools " installed and CD-ROM drive letter designation and finally appearance of A:\Prompt
6. At, A:\ Prompt type FDISK and press ENTER.
7. Accespt Y at the bottom of "Large Disk Support" message.
8. At FDISK menu select #4. Display...."
9. Check if the HDD is shown as C: A FAT32 and size.
I am suspecting a problem somewhere here; so if you don't have an Active C: drive press ESC >ESC and remove boot Disk CTRL +ALT+ DELETE to reboot and post back
If you have an Active C: drive, press ESC >ESC to A:\Prompt and type in C: and then at C:\> prompt, type DIR and [ENTER] look for Windows Directories. Here is another Problem area. If you cannot Find any Dir or get an Error, make sure your typing and spacing are OK [ No space after Drive letter for the Command] and if so, ALT+CTRL+DEL or Power Off.

If the problem is same do next .

Alternative Start Mode

1. Re-boot PC, as it starts tap F8 several times until the windows boot window appears.
2. Scroll to "Start with last known good configuration.)
3. Press "Enter"

1. Re-boot PC, as it starts tap F8 several times until the windows boot window appears.

2. "All programs"
3. "Accessories"
4. "System tools"
5. "System Restore"

Computer is booting from a non-bootable source

CD-ROM is the first boot device, and not the hard disk drive.

Second, when the computer is booting you should receive the below prompt.

Press any key to boot from the CD

Important: When you see this message press any key such as the Enter key immediately, otherwise it will try booting from the hard drive and likely get the NTLDR error again.

Computer hard disk drive is not properly setup in BIOS

Verify that your computer hard disk drive is properly setup in the BIOS / CMOS setup. Improper settings can cause this error. Additional information on how to enter the BIOS / CMOS setup can be found in document CH000192.

Corrupt NTLDR and/or NTDETECT.COM file

Windows 2000 users
Windows XP users

Windows 2000 users

If your computer is using Microsoft Windows 2000 and you are encountering the NTLDR error. Create the below boot.ini file on the floppy diskette drive.

[boot loader]
[operating systems]
multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINNT="Microsoft Windows 2000 Professional" /fastdetect

Copy the NTLDR and NTDETECT.COM files from another computer using the same operating system. Both of these files are located in the root directory of the primary hard disk drive. For example, C:\NTLDR and C:\NTDETECT.COM should be the locations of these files on many computers.

Please keep in mind that these files are hidden system files, if you need additional help with viewing hidden files in Windows please see document CH000516.

Once these files have been copied to a floppy diskette reboot the computer and copy the NTLDR and NTDETECT.COM files to the root directory of the primary hard disk drive. Below is an example of what commonly should be performed from the A:\> drive.

copy ntldr c:
copy c:

After the above two files have been copied, remove the floppy diskette and reboot the computer.

Windows XP users
Insert the Windows XP bootable CD into the computer.
When prompted to press any key to boot from the CD, press any key.
Once in the Windows XP setup menu press the "R" key to repair Windows.
Log into your Windows installation by pressing the "1" key and pressing enter.
You will then be prompted for your administrator password, enter that password.
Copy the below two files to the root directory of the primary hard disk. In the below example we are copying these files from the CD-ROM drive letter, which in this case is "e." This letter may be different on your computer.

copy e:\i386\ntldr c:\
copy e:\i386\ c:\

Once both of these files have been successfully copied, remove the CD from the computer and reboot.

Misconfiguration with the boot.ini file

Edit the boot.ini on the root directory of the hard disk drive and verify that it is pointing to the correct location of your Windows operating system and that the partitions are properly defined. Additional information about the boot.ini can be found on document CH000492.

Attempting to upgrade from a Windows 95, 98, or ME computer that is using FAT32

If you are getting this error message while you are attempting to upgrade to Windows 2000 or Windows XP from Windows 95, Windows 98, or Windows ME running FAT32 please try the below recommendations.
Boot the computer with a Windows 95, Windows 98 or Windows ME bootable diskette.
At the A:\> prompt type:

sys c:

After pressing enter you should receive the "System Transferred" message. Once this has been completed remove the floppy diskette and reboot the computer.

New hard disk drive being added

If you are attempting to add a new hard disk drive to the computer make sure that drive is a blank drive. Adding a new hard disk drive to a computer that already has Windows installed on it may cause the NTLDR error to occur.

If you are unsure if the new drive is blank or not try booting from a bootable diskette and format the new hard disk drive.

Corrupt boot sector / master boot record

It's possible your computer's hard disk drive may have a corrupt boot sector and/or master boot record. These can be repaired through the Microsoft Windows Recovery console by running the fixboot and fixmbr commands.

Additional information and help in getting into the Microsoft Windows Recovery console can be found on document CH000627.

Seriously corrupted version of Windows 2000 or Windows XP

If you have tried each of the above recommendations that apply to your situation and you continue to experience this issue it is possible you may have a seriously corrupted version of Microsoft Windows. Therefore we would recommend you reinstall Microsoft Windows 2000 and Windows XP.

If you are encountering this issue during your setup you may wish to completely erase your computer hard disk drive and all of its existing data and then install Microsoft Windows 2000 / Windows XP. Additional information about erasing the computer and starting over can be found on document CH000186.

Loose or Faulty IDE/EIDE hard disk drive cable

This issue has been known to be caused by a loose or fault IDE/EIDE cable. If the above recommendation does not resolve your issue and your computer hard disk drive is using an IDE or EIDE interface. Verify the computer hard disk drive cable is firmly connected by disconnected and reconnecting the cable.

If the issue continues it is also a possibility that the computer has a faulty cable, try replacing the hard disk drive cable with another cable and/or a new cable.

Hope this helps ,

Error codes

This type of error code can occur when installing Windows 2000, if there is some sort of hard drive confliction. If you have multiple hard drives in the computer. Please unplug all other hard drives except the MAIN drive that you are installing on, if the errors still occurs you may want to try installing to a different hard drive as your main drive, or replacing the IDE or SATA cable.

Another option to consider is that format did not complete correctly, you may want to viist the website of the manufacturer of the hard drive you are installing on and retrieve the utility to perform a Low-Level format on the hard drive - this will erase any and all data on the drive.
