Question about EliteGroup ECS 761GX-M754(3.0A) Socket 754/761GX/FSB1600/A&V&L/PCI-E Motherboard (MOTEC09)
After installing new motherboard, I am unable to get my computer to boot. I am also having trouble getting my computer to boot from the CD rom so that I can run my setup CD that came with my motherboard. BIOS settings all look correct, post beep, everything seems fine, but I can not get Windows XP to boot.I get to the point that I get the message to start normally, safe mode, ect. Then the computer restarts. I've been unable to boot from floppy & CD rom
Is the new motherboard the same model with the one you have replaced. If so, there should have no problem on it. If it is different model, then you have to reconfigure the software installed such as the driver. your new motherboard surely has the CD included where the necessary software should be installed. But, the problem is that you cannot get to the WindowsXP screen..
Windows XP CD is also bootable.. Now in the bios setup there is a portion there that tells about on how to boot whether in drive a, hard disk or cd. Choose CD and inser the bootable Windows XP. In that way you should be able to get to the XP screen. Of course, you have to restart it to make the necessary changes but before that make sure you have saved the changes youve made to the bios setup.
Now if youre able to go to the main screen, uninstall software that are with your old motherboard and install the new one.
Hope to solve your problem.
