XP Display freeze

Thanks Tom,
Default failsafe BIOS setting didn't help.

I'll have to get back to my local supplier of this hardware, and see if they can help.

Thanks again for your assistance.

I'm sure it's a BIOS or software issue - but a tricky one to identify and solve.

All the best for the NEW YEAR.

    I have the identical problem. A new system of GeForce 6100Sm-M Mobo, 2GB Ram (2X1GB Sticks) New SATA Hitachi 250Gb HDD, and an LG CD/DVD rewrite. My system also locks up so perhaps it is also the DVD burner.

    Can anyone tell me where i cn find the SATA drivers for the new HDD, are they on the Mobo CD if so what are they called. Thanks anyone for your invaluable help. DaffyD.

Tom,
I found the problem causing the lock up

It was the LG DVD Burner on the IDE connection

I changed to an ordinary CD ROM 52 x and everything worked perfectly

Why the LG DVD Burner did this, I have no idea. By the way, the MB & CPU, DDR2 & LG Burner are new.
Cheers
Kaiwah

Kaiwah, You never said how old the MB is, but it looks like the onboard video is bad. If it is still under warranty have them fix it. If not go out and get a new board. I have seen yours for about less than $100.00 bucks

Thank you and happy new year to you too!!

Where is bios reset


The above applies mainly to desktop machines...were you inquiring about a laptop? It will have a clock battery as well, but the "yank the battery" trick won't work on mobile hardware. It is still possible to do, just might want an experienced hand to assist, as it involves cracking into the laptop. Most laptop pc's have two tiny metal contacts on the board, usually situated near the RAM expansion slot. A flathead (non magnetic, of course) screwdriver is is usually sufficient to bridge the gap between the two metal points, effictively "shorting" BIOS's connection to the power source. That will cause the BIOS to reset back to factory defaults, restoring default or "failsafe" settings. On many machines this is the only way to remove a startup or BIOS administrative password. PLEASE SEEK ASSISTANCE with this, as it is incredibly easy to seriously damage your hardware while trying to crack into the case. You can, if needed find disassembly instructions for your make/model on the OEM manufacturer's support page... which should help if you absolutely have to do this yourself.
Good luck!

WINDOWS XP INSTALLATION


- Start your old window in safe mode And follow these steps

- Return BIOS settings to their default levels. An overclocked or misconfigured BIOS can cause all sorts of random issues, including BSODs.
- Update drivers for your hardware.just go to site of your laptop manufacturer Once there enter the model number OR service tag of the laptop then request driver (usually found in the web site's "Support Section"). There you should be able to find all the drivers for your model laptop Most Blue Screens of Death are hardware or driver related so updated drivers could fix the cause of the STOP error.

If problem still exists, then I will suggest you to get Intel software partner reliable program Reginout to fix your annoying blue screen problem.

Cmos incorect perriferique non specifier

incorrect CMOS device not specify

CMOS device(electronics)

A device formed by the combination of a PMOS

(p-type-channel metal oxide semiconductor device) with an NMOS (n-type-channel metal oxide semiconductor device). Derived from complementary metal oxide semiconductor device.

The CMSOS is only a battery to store you're bios/mainboard settings.
CMOS is an on-board semiconductor chip powered by a CMOS battery inside computers that stores information such as the system time and date and the system hardware settings for your computer..

The moment that you unplug the power and remove the battery for at least 10seconds, the mainboard will reset it self into the 'default-state'.

This can also be done by selecting 'reset to default settings' in bios screen.

Restart your computer
During the boot process you will see on the screen to press a certain key to enter setup usually the Delete or F2 key
this will vary depending on your computer and operating system

Press and hold that key during the boot up process to enter BIOS using the arrow keys load failsafe defaults or load optimized defaults press escape then press f10 to save to cmos to restart

hope this helps

When booting it display insert smart card


I didn't get what you said but since you said your system needs smart card to boot. This mean that you have wrong BIOS settings. Just try to set it to default settings by entering into the Bios Pressing apporpiate Key (F2 or F8 or Delete Button).

Advanced BIOS setting


Hello,

I would suggest using the set bios default option on the main screen. This should reset everything to factory defaults.

Be sure to exit saving settings. After that, assuming there's no hardware damage, it should start fine.

Hope this helps. Please remember to rate this information.

Thanks

Motherboard stop recognize SATA HDD after BIOS reset (default)


You'll likely need either a driver disk for your SATA drive to be recognized by Windows XP during installation or Windows XP with Service Pack 2 built in to install without a driver disk.

Creating a Windows XP installation CD with Service Pack 2 or "SP2" built in is fairly straight forward. This is called "slip streaming". Step - by - step directions can be found in the following links:

Startup


Hi,

Possibly 2 reasons:
1. Driver/hardware/software/application problem; or
2. Virus/malware.

You can consider:
1.1 Run in last known good configuration that worked (by pressing F8 to display menu choices prior to Windows boot);
1.2 In safe mode, Start/Run/type "msconfig" minus the quotes, uncheck everything in the Startup tab, reboot;
1.3 In Safe Mode, run your antivirus or run Kaspersky online virus scanner or anything similar;
1.4 Download/install/run AdAware or anything similar;
1.5 Check you Control Panel for devices with yellow or red markings;
1.6 Set your BIOS/CMOS to conservative/default/best performance settings (normally press Del on powering up);
1.8 Check/Clean your hardware: video card, memory, fan/blowers etc;
1.9 Booting without any USB devices plugged in;

Worst case scenario, use a recovery CD that came with your computer or in the absence of that, reinstall your OS using the 2nd "Repair" option.

Hope this be f help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.
