What application are you talking about?

Windows uses a different set of hardware drivers and completely different user interface software. Windows applications "call" standard methods to display menus, windows etc instead of including them inside the application. Most windows applications are larger than the dos equivalent because windows is "bigger" that ms-dos. Windows supports cutting and pasting between applications.

Dos usually has to have each application load its own drivers and its own user interface software. Often a dos application is smaller and sometimes less functional than the windows equivalent. Cutting and pasting between Dos applications is tricky and often involves "exporting" from one application and "importing" to the next via external files that you have save and locate.

The BIOS has been corrupted. Machine will not boot. Message says Bad Checksum. The only way to rewrite the Bios would appear to be using the Award Bios flash utility. Problem is this demands a DOS file...


call tech support for the asus mb.. explain that the bios is corrupted..

or just turn off the power .. at the wall outlet

and jumper the board to reset the factory defaults for the bios

...

if this fails.. then asus may be able to provide a dos .bin file

renaming the windows file.. will not work!

it is program all contained in a single file and must have windows operational to execute

so... i hate when they write bios update software to operate under windows only



you can ship the board to asus for the bios to be flashed as the last resort

I have a new G31-M7-TE version 6.7 Biostar MB. When I try to install XP it always errors out at some point where it is initializing the drivers so it never install XP. I have an erlier version of this...


I'll bet the problem lies with the hard disk drive. Suggest you download the manufacture's hdd setup software. Example, for a Seagate and Maxtor drive download; SeaTools for DOS. Here is the link; http://www.seagate.com/www/en-us/support/downloads/seatools
Every manufacture has their own setup software that runs in a DOS like environment. Download either the bootable floppy disk software or bootable CD software. Run the software on you're drive and than install windows. Windows XP should install with out a hitch and load.

Cheers'

Want to install xp by caldera dr dos


The problem is hard enough for beginners . First :

1.DR DOS is used by ASUS . DR DOS isn't MS-DOS (Microsoft), just 99% compatible with it . You have access with it on whole HDD+cd/dvd but , because drdos will enable only 8MB RAM you can't install winnt.exe from i386 . There are at least 2 solutions :
a. if drdos is enable because u reseted BIOS try to change bios according to a better result (avoiding Caldera) and start a nice windows installation;
b. u may use another desktop/laptop until the first restart (in installation) ; u must try to use a computer with ~motherboard for best results.

Don't forget that DR DOS Caldera is almost every time used on ASUS MBs with all on board and you must have a PS2 keyboard/mouse to use any kind of DOS . I read sometimes that DRDOS is a soft used by Microsoft which it's wrong - there isn't any link between drdos and any windows system , genuine or not .
DRDOS problem might appear because it's a soft put on ASUS MB cd driver and , sometime, might be on a BIOS ROM .When u will boot with the MB cd driver in this kind of problem might occur .
Other way Caldera may appear is when u have a windows cd made careless with NERO and caldera will appear no matter the MB .

I have an intel d865 gkd motherborad want a audio driver i m using windows xp


Hi gaurav_night,
There is no Intel MB D865GKD listed on Intel's web site.
Intel MB's that include the letter "G" are listed. Here:
http://downloadcenter.intel.com/Product_Search.aspx?Prod_nm=D865G&lang=eng&MissingSearchTxt=Please+enter+a+valid+product+name%2C+filename+or+product+ID+%23.&x=11&y=3

Chances are the next link below will work for your Intel MB. Scroll down to number 5. Create a folder on your desktop & download the file: (Audio: Realtek* AC97 Audio Driver audio drivers) into the folder you created. Run the software.
If for what ever reason the audio driver fails, post any error message that may list through windows. I'll go from there.

Good luck!
Mike

ASUS A7V8X hangs @ splash screen


Just because an installation may hang does not mean the board is dead. If possible I would connect the hard drive into another PC and check for a virus. While in another pc you can remove important data from the drive & copy to a CD/DVD. Than download the drives Mfg's drive software setup program that will run in Dos mode from a diskett. Reformat the drive and install a fresh copy of windows. You might find that is the only problem. Xp does not always install correctly. There may be a software or hard ware making windows hang.
