Use System Restore: To use System Restore, first restart the computer by pressing[Ctrl][Alt][Delete]. When you see the message Please select
the operating system to start or hear the singlebeep, press [F8] to display the Windows Advanced Options menu. Now,
select theSafe Mode item from the menu and press [Enter].
Once Windows XP boots into Safe mode, click the Startbutton, access the All Programs ' Accessories ' System Tools menu,
and selectSystem Restore. Because you're running in Safe mode, the only option on theopening screen of the System Restore
wizard is Restore My Computer To AnEarlier Time, and it's selected by default, so just click Next. Then, followalong with
the wizard to select a restore point and begin the restoration procedure. Let me know if it helps you. Use system utility tool like RegInOut
to remove unwantted files and fix registry and windows errors.
However your post does have one confusing detail - XP when installed does not reside on the motherboard but on a Hard Disk Drive. Parts of it will be loaded into memory when you boot up the PC.
If you mean that you are also installing a new Gigabyte MB under an existing installation of XP, you will probably still need the XP system disk for a reinstall of XP as it may not recognise the new MB.
If you are newly installing XP in an existing PC with the specs you mention, it should be ideal. It is best to have enough memory on board, at least 1 Gb.
This behavior can occur because of damaged random access memory (RAM) modules or a damaged RAM slot.
To resolve this issue, use one or more of the following methods, as necessary:
Remove one or more of the RAM modules in your computer, leaving at least the minimum amount of RAM required for Windows XP installation. If this resolves the issue, either replace these modules with new RAM modules or reinsert them after Setup is completed.
NOTE: Verify that your computer's performance is not affected when you reinsert the old RAM modules.
Install the RAM modules into different (unused) RAM slots in your computer.
If you still experience problems before or after Setup, replace all of your computer's RAM modules with new RAM modules.
try installing from another copy. It sounds like the file is corrupt. Get a CD from someone, but use your own product key (this is not illegal, as you are using the product key you bought) Try installing it. It ought to work now!
This generally indicates that the disc is corrupt. It can be anything from a scratch, degraded read section on the disc, or a distortion from the disc getting bent or hot (left in direct sunlight). You will most likely have to use a different disc for the install.
Mayeb you need to repair the OS - In which case you will need to have SCSI Controller XP OS floppy driver obtained from IBM website.
Start up the computer booting up from the CD ROM. Then when it comes to "install thrid party devices" - press 'S' and insert the floppy with the SCSI Coontroller on it and follow the on screen instructions.
