Boot up problem

    My son updated his computer with an MSI K9MM-V motherboard and AMD Athlon 64X2 4000+ processor. He also added DDR2 memory (PNY PC2-5300). When he tries to boot up, he is getting the same screen asking to select safe mode, etc. After making a selection, it comes right back to the same screen. He has tried contacting MSI, but hasn't gotten a return call yet. I did some research and it seems to be pointing to the BIOS. He has reset everything, but it didn't correct the problem. We're wondering if possibly the memory is not compatible, but don't have anything else on hand. Any help will be appreciated.

Did you go into your bios and reset with factory settings. Also did you try to boot up with the windows xp installation disk. Try that and let me know what happens. Are you sure the hard drive is ok too. let me know if you get it going if not get back here. I'll be in and out all day so when I get your message back I will get to you asap.
Thanks hope that helps some. You get into your bios by pressing the delete Key or F2 key when your are starting up and your computers logo is on continue pressing until your bios screen comes on. Read your instructions and follow how to reset bios to factory settings... anymore ?s just ask

Does the mother board Asrock 845GV (P4I45GV) support pci sata card


If you are trying to install Windows XP then -
The problem is that XPinstallation CD does not have a SATA driver, unless you have a SATA drive on adisk etc. and can install the driver when XP asks for a hard drive driver then,XP cannot detect the hard disk and therefore won't install XP.The FIX.Go into the BIOS anddisable the SATA drive (enable IDE emulation), this will make XP think it is aIDE/PATA hard disk. Then you can install XP normally. When Windows hasbeen installed then install all the device drivers (including the SATA driver),then shut down and boot up and got into the BIOS and enable the SATA drive.http://www.fixya.com/support/r4335035-installing_windows_xp_sata_hard_drive

Hi my pc come up with a error boot disk failure bit also i get a blue screen sometimes


You have given little information, but to me it sounds like your hard disk is failing. I would try to get the drive imaged to another one, and replace the drive before you completely lose all your data!

I cannot start my computer after replacing motherboard and CPU. How do i install Windows onto the motherboard and how do I install eJiffy?


You forgot to sysprep the OS before removing the old board.
Put the drive back on the old board and CPU and let it boot up.
now sysprep the drive THEN re-install the new board and CPU
To sysprep the drive, do the following:

>There is a SYSPREP tool on the XP CD.

>You may need to extract files from the Windows XP CD, files are located at CD:\SUPPORT\TOOLS\ in a cab file called DEPLOY.CAB. The files are Sysprep.exe and Setupcl.exe.

>With the old motherboard still intact:

>You run sysprep and "RESEAL" Windows XP.

>Then you put the new board in, and it re-activates Windows XP and populates the device manager list.

>You do need to re-activate with the same key-code, and if you exhaust that number of activations, it will prompt you to call Microsoft and you get a new release key at no cost from them over the phone.

The basic problem here is that when windows goes to initialize the old hard disk controller, it loses the hard disk because the controller isn't the same.
It may also be crashing as it tries to initialize other hardware, but it needs that IDE or SATA (or SCSI) controller online even to get into safe mode!!

Good luck - sysprep works about 90% of the time, but if you run into problems, it can be a real bugger to untangle!

PC does not boots / does not start


Since your system reboots even if you stay in the Bios setup the problem with your system might be because of heating up of the proceesor, which might be caused if the fan CPU fan is rotating slowly or is not rotating at all. If the fan is rotating slowly change the cpu fan and try to reinstall XP

Sysem will not remoot fast and properly


It sounds like you are having a hard drive failure.

The message your getting is not asking for the motherboard disk, it is asking for an operating system disk.

I don't understand how the computer ever get's to the Net if it can't get past asking for a system disk.

Please provide further information, such as operating system, how old the computer and hard drive are, and a more clear description of what the system is, or is not, doing.

MoBo Replacement


did you go into the new bios and check to make sure you have the hard drive setting on auto, then check your boot order that the drive is first to boot., if that doesnt work create a floppy boot disk (google it) and see if you see the hard drive when you do that.
