Hi,
Sounds like the hard drive is failing. When you start the computer your operating system searches for the boot sector on the hard drive. If the boot sector is damaged the OS can't find it so it keeps rebooting to find it.

First step should be checking the hard drive.

I'm upgardeing my ms-7061's cpu from a 1.5 to 2.2


http://www.msi.com/product/mb/KM4M-V.html#/?div=Detail

Download > Manual >

CPU
Supports AMD Athlon / Athlon XP / Duran (Socket 462) processor.
(Socket 462 = Socket A)

Supports from 1100MHz to 3000+ model.

VIA KM266 Pro motherboard chipset - Front Side Bus support of 266MegaHertz.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_VIA_chipsets#Slot_A_and_Socket_A

(Same specs as a VIA KT266A but with Integrated Graphics.
The 133MHz FSB support shown is doubled. AMD processors are 'Double-pumped')

VIA KM400 motherboard chipset -
FSB support of 266MHz to 333MHz.
(Same as KT400 but with Integrated Graphics)

VIA KM400A motherboard chipset -
FSB support of either 266MHz, 333MHz, or 400MHz
(Same as KT400A but with Integrated Graphics)

Looking at the Bottom/Right corner at the CMOS battery;
There are THREE sets of jumper pins to the bottom right edge of the CMOS battery.

6 pins towards the outside edge of the motherboard, 3 pins to the inside of the motherboard. (Left side of the 6 pins)

On the 6 pins in a row configuration, the top 3 pins is SW1.
The bottom 3 pins is SW2.
The 3 pins to the inside of them is JBAT 1

In the 3 pins for SW1 the bottom pin, or pin closest to the bottom edge of the motherboard, is Pin 1.

Same for SW2. The bottom pin, or pin closest to the bottom edge of the motherboard, is Pin 1.

Jumper on pins;
SW1 pins 2 and 3, SW2 pins 1 and 2 = 266MHz FSB support
SW1 pins 1 and 2, SW2 pins 1 and 2 = 333MHz FSB support

For the KM400A (KT400A) motherboard chipset;
SW1 pins 1 and 2, SW2 pins 2 and 3 = 200MHz FSB support

1) What is the model name, and model number of the AMD processor you are going to use?

2) What kind of Thermal Paste are you using?

3) What are you using to clean the bottom of the Heatsink with, and is the top of the Processor clean?

4) Are you following Anti-Static Precautions?

AMD Puma-based Asus M51Ta stalls at power up, screen is blank.


Have you tried booting and pressing F2 to get in the bios?
If that works you can check the boot devices and order of usage. Make sure the HDD is first.
Apart from that you can reboot and press F8 to get in the Windows boot menu, where you can try the Safe Mode.

If all this fails, the Windows configuration is somehow corrupt. You can try booting from a Windows CD and run the Repair option in the setup.

Switching from 40GB IDE HDD to 500GB SATA HDD. SATA won't boot.


Hi there
No there is no need to change any jumpers on a sata drive, go into the bios settings and tell the bios to boot from the western digital drive only.

Good luck and thanks for using Fixya!!!!

PC won't boot if SATA drive connected, drive works fine if plugged afterward


Try Hirens Boot CD. It has a lot of programs on it to detect format etc.
I think your hard drive has a missing or corrupt MBR and it needs to be replaced.
When I have had a hard dive not recognized I hve used Super Fdisk to format and reset hard drive.

VIA KM400A is the name of the motherboard chipset inside your computer.

I'm fully familure with that board.

1. on boot up hit delete or F2 key to enter the bios setup screen
2. once inside the bios setup screen , look for power management settings.

you'll know what to do at that point

You'll want to

1. turn power nanagement totaly off , which is not a good idea because windows considers
it a device in the system and loads a driver for it , so turning it totaly off MIGHT give windows
a heart attack.

2. set

Display Power Management Controled by Power Management = NA or NO

Turn off display after suspend or hybernate = NO

3. save and reboot



Thank you for choosing FixYa!

Cmos checksum error after flashing the bios


I had a similar experience after upgrading my RAM. When you reset your CMOS and have default settings maybe you should check if your RAM timings are correct. I could not get mine to load with both sticks in until I fixed the timings from the default settings.
