    Thanks Mark, I will have another go at this tomorrow. My main problem is that I bought the board at Frys in Oregon, and I am now at home in a small town in Alaska, and I do not have access to replacement parts without ordering them from Newegg, and my wife is getting unhappy with needing to buy more parts to maybe fix an older machine...

    Tomorrow I will start by installing everything one step at a time. and check the jumpers as well.

    Also I wanted to add that BioStar's website is less than useful for trouble shooting purposes..

    Thanks for the advice.

Hi rhvc59,

Something isn't setup correctly on the board. There could be many things that could stop the system from turning on, Determining if it works is like detective work. What I do, is take everything off the board to start. Then add the minimum to start a board to see if it will start. That's one drive (cd or otherwise) the CPU, and one bank of memory. (that's not a required eliminate, but it helps avoid beep codes) Also, make sure you have your pin's set on the board absolutely correct, or that could be your problem to begin with. Now, you should get the power supply on, and the cpu. If those don't power up, it's then either one of the five elements. The CPU, Power supply, Ram, Drive, or the motherboard. The next step is to replace each one of the first four to see if you get any change. If no change, then I usually get another board that I can test the first four, and make sure that they work. After that, then I say you have a DOA Board. But if you are successful on all equipment, then it was worth doing it one by one.


Good Luck
Mark

Windows logo error mesage


Press windows button and in the search type msconfig go to startup tab and uncheck those you dont want to start.
if this fails to fix the problem
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

I have a gateway 500xl that the previous owner reformatted the harddrive wiping the xp operating system. I've upgraded the ram but without an op system I cannot turn the machine on. I need to install...


Hi there.

For this process you will need:
1) The hard drive you want the operating system on.
2) The operating system disk (Windows, Linux, etc, depending on your os choice)
3) A CD/DVD drive.

Firstly you will need to enter the BIOS on startup by pressing the Delete key repeatedly as your system starts up. In the BIOS you need to locate the boot disk priority section. You need to set priority 1 to your CD/DVD drive and priority 2 to the hard drive you wish to install the operating system to. Once this is done save changes to the BIOS and exit. Your system should now restart and on boot-up it should display a message "Insert bootable disk" or something like that. This is where you put in the operating systems install disk into your CD/DVD drive. Once it is in restart your system. Now your PC should boot up and ask you to press "Enter" to boot form the CD/DVD. Press enter to proceed. The setup should now begin, just follow the steps given by the setup wizard. Once the setup is finished and your PC reboots and on startup you get the same message about pressing "Enter" to begin setup just do nothing. Your PC should then switch automatically to your newly installed operating system and boot into it. Once your PC is fully booted into your operating system of choice remove the setup disk.

Installed new P4M900-M4 MB. System will not boot up. Screen shows startup but when I press the delete button for setup, it just sits there. At the bottom it says "entering setup", but goes nowhere.


First reattach all connection top motherbord.
Refix RAM memory.
Pull cmos cell for 15 minutes from motherbord so all bios settings are reset.
heck your power supply unit of computer working fine.
