Question about Syntax SV266A SKA KT266A Motherboard

1 Answer

On board USB and LAN not working

Hi, desperate for help. Have the SV266A MB and has been working mostly fine for around 5 years running XP pro version 1. Finally decided to upgrade and decided to format HD and start from scratch. Didn't get any problems for around two weeks, then tried to install a USB2 PCI card. Nothing seemed to change, and I have checked, flashed, upgraded and fixed the BIOS, but the machine will not work, or even re-install windows, when the on board usb or LAN is enabled in the BIOS. As stated, I am desperate for a solution, and hope that it is not the MB, but would be extremely grateful for any suggestions. Thanks a lot, Chris.

Hey most of the hardware problehms are due the motherboard 90% and ram8% others 2%

According to my experience i have also faced many of this ......but with Intel MB (box) and Intel cpu (combination)i never had a problem for long period of time ...some of my systems are working with 0error from last 8years

(basically with other MB if you face a OS error it is the most irritating type of fault detection some times it is good and some times it all of a sudden the blue screen and the whole Os has to be reloaded ...the most head ace part)

    No Sound After Reinstall

    Have you Reset you BIOS,because after you build a machine up,the Bios has to be set to Default,and were you grounded with a arm band when you put the parts together?,During the assembly it is paramount that you wear a grounded arm band so that your body electrical discharge does not interfere with the components,you probably have a hardware/software conflict.some thing in the BIOS is most likely left on.or set to hardware.

    Dear salam

    You are only part way there in installing the software. After XP, you need to install the board specific drivers for it's systems. They should be on a CD that would have come with the motherboard. Once those are installed, everything should work.

    Intel 845 GVSR drivers for windows vista

    Fix for older motherboards like Intel 845GVSR etc.,
    (This solution works for any Intel Motherboard)
    No need to donwload or install any drivers.
    Vista has everything built in.
    Only thing is it needs atleast 128 Mb of Video Memory, but for older motherboards like Inter 845 by default the Video Memory is configured to 64 Mb which is resulting in your problem.
    So what you have to do is...
    Restart your computer > Press DEL Key
    Go to BIOS Settings > Advanced > Video Configuration
    1. Change "AGP Aperture Size" from 64 Mb to "128 Mb or Higher"
    2. Leave "Primary Video Adapter" as "Integrated"
    3. Change "Frame Buffer Size" from 1 Mb to "8 Mb"
    and then press F10(i.e., Save changes and continue).
    Sometimes, for the first time you may see screen not aligned properly, in that case just restart once more and Vista will automatically adjust the alignment for you.
    Also, you can change the resolution to your desired one manually as follows...
    1. Click "Start Button"
    2. Right click on "Computer"
    3. Select "Properties" option from the context menu.
    4. Scroll down and find "Disply Settings" option and click it.
    5. Adjust Resolution Size and Mode.

    Usb external drive not getting detected

    i dont think usb version2.0 was popular when pentium 3 was around, get a BIOS uprade for your board if you can,
    failing that a more up to date board and chip, with windows xp will sort this problem out and it will run so much faster as well
