Question about Biostar P4M800 Pro-M7 (P4M8PROM7) Motherboard

1 Answer

After computer locks up, reboot is not successful because it hangs again

My computer , using XP Pro, has not been stable whenever showing videos/running VCD or using internet since its setting up. It often locked up. After I removed the ATI Catalyst, only using the display card driver (ATI A9550) and disabling the accerleration completely, the situation was much better. It only hang sometimes during surfing the internet or using the media devices.

Recently, the computer, after lock up and restart, has been unable to load fully; it may freeze during loading. I can go to the safe mode but when it goes to a normal boot up, it stops responding. If I reboot it, the situations are just the same. I have to unplug the power cord. Being plugged, the computer works normally after some ten minutes. Strange!

Please help.

    Hi Haltech,



    Thank you for your advice. How can I know that it's a "real power type PSU"? The computer was diy by another guy. I have no idea of what type of PSU that is.

It seems to me your system did not receive enough power from your power supply unit (PSU). Get a "real power type PSU". It should solve your problem.

    Well, I cannot tell you much as we are from different location. What I can tell you is that it cost a lot more from the normal PSU even of the same rating. Normally, the normal power supply comes together with a casing while the real power type comes in a box of its own. Usually the box will mention something like "Extreme Power", "Real Power, "Silent Master Cooling System", etc..It is built with a strong durable material. The fan is larger than the normal one, or sometimes it has two fans and also very quiet. The best is for you to ask for it at your computer outlet. Once you look at it you will know the different between normal and the real power type.

Compaq EVO N1020V Not reporting RAM correctly


This sounds as thought he RAM is faulty.

You need to have installed 2 x 512 MB DDR 266 SoDIMMs and not 1 x SoDIMM.

If you have placed 1 x 1Gb SoDIMM in ther EVO this would account for you only seeing 480Mb of RAM.

Computer keeps trying to install XP professional


First of all Hello

Is it win XP pro of office pro :) anyways i think you meant office professional :)

if its xp pro
Do you have a Cd or an image containing xp pro mounted? If so that is why you are getting this problem. Make sure remove any CD's from the drive.

if its office pro and you have multiple accounts on your computer do this :)
It might be that you are using office as a user of your PC and NOT as administrator in which case it means you have to go back to your administrator profile and make a FULL INSTALL (all features installed on my computer) of OFFICE professional and the problem goes.

I hope that this fixya helped you :)

Can't use google video chat with logitech 9000 pro


Ok, first you definitly want to upgrade to service pack 3. And what version of Direct X are you running this sounds like you need to upgrade that as well.

goto: http://winupdate.microsoft.com

Let it install what ever moduals it needs to install and then click custom button, under optional software if there are ANY Direct x updates install them, also install service pack three it has a lot of fixes for multimedia applications and is the most stable version of xp out there.
