Other issues appeared with the Epox Mobo I had to buy something else. I wanted to use most if not all of my pci cards with the new board, purchased a board by PC Chips M848A V5.0, Socket 462 /ATX. Everything works fine, except when I reinstalled winxp all the programs I want to install XP says "not a valid win32 program". I just want to reinstall MS Office, Adobe Photoshop etc, I don't have any win32 programs. Can someone help me solve this problem? Thanks in advance.

Mostly PCI-E now are good vga card, i have a tip for you... there's is a secret between a 512MB & 1GB PCI-E card. With this feature is required a good power supply, like for example I used Power Supply 550watts (original 500watts power supply). This power supply is different from 350watts and 500watts.. Here is a secret buy a 550 watts to boost PCI-E card both 512MB & 1GB. Secretly this performance are based on my own analysis using CPU booster freeware... I'm sure 100% more compatible & perfectly to your motherboard. Just try it at least you have idea where you want to grab PCI-E cards (any Model). Good luck!
make sure the sound card is enable in the bois, then try a bois update, from epox.com, restart you system press f2 or delete which ever gets you in to the bois, then chek under integrated pher or chipset for a anything that has to with onboard sound, should fix you problem, or take it to your nearest pc repair shop for free qoute
Ah, that is a nasty problem. Sounds like the BIOS got corrupted. You have several options:
1. Get another bios chip from the mobo manufacturer.
2. Get another motherboard and use it to program your bad chip. See here how
3. Dump the old mobo and buy a new one.
I would go with option 3. The other options are just a big headache.
check if the harddisk is registered in the standard cmos utility and advanced cmos utility, if not register it
secondly, check if the hard disk's partition is ok and check if the os is not corrupt, if corrupt install a new one
