Question about EliteGroup 848P-A Motherboard

1 Answer

Troubleshoot motherboard I've had this motherboard for about 2 years with a W2K OS install; it has worked fine all this time. All of a sudden, the computer reboot and is now stuck on an endless reboot loop. It boots up to the point in W2K where it's "preparing network connections..." and it reboots. This repeats endlessly. I pulled the drive out, put in a new drive, and tried to install WXP. With this scenario, the text install portion of the process fails to read files. I replaced the ribbon cable for the CD drive with no success. I went out and bought new RAM, no success. I'm beginning to think the issue is the motherboard. any suggestions on how to test this? Many thanks in advance for anyone who can help.

It's hard to do much testing, but I'd look for capacitors that are bulged or leaking. has way more information than you'd ever want to know about this problem

Pull everything out and reseat it, see if it works.

After that, I'd pull everything out but the motherboard, one stick of known good memory, and the video card. Also disconnect everything from the back but the keyboard and monitor. Clear CMOS using the correct jumper.
Boot up to the cannot boot prompt and let it sit for a while (15 minutes or so). Do a ctrl-alt-del and see if it reboots correctly.

Next, add in just the cdrom and boot off of it until it fails (win xp setup) Then Ctrl-alt-del and make sure it works a second time.

Now, add your hard drive and try to install. If it works, shut down, add one card at a tie back in, and test each time.
Then start adding in your usb devices, then network cabling, etc etc.

If you can, try a known good power supply.

Either you'll find the part that is causing the problem, or you'll know it's most likely your motherboard.

Resolution problem not more than 32bit. i need more resolution.

You have not install the correct onboard Graphic Card driver for your Mainboard, so you currently are running on Generic Graphic drivers and you have a low resolution.

From the specifications of your Mainboard, assumption that you are using WinXP or W2K OS.

You can download and install the "Intel® Extreme Graphics Driver for 845 Chipset-​Based Intel Desktop Boards" to your system.

Hope it helps.

Windows won't boot after an OS upgrade

The board is probably good but I've seen this many times when folks try to upgrade old computers. The drivers included with XP aren't working on your machine. It's not working with W2K because when you formatted the HD with XP it removed the IBM label from the HD. You should use your recovery disks to restore the drive.
