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.

Making a bench machine on the tyan dual core pentium III mother board


Rebooting is tipical of Windows XP when there is an important error. Most of the time this error is coming from the hardware.
There is a way to know the error code that make Windows XP mad, but you have to eliminate the automatic restart option.
With your mouse right click on My Computer, select properties, select advanced and you should see something similar:

deselect Automatically restart.
At this point next time you will have the error instead of rebooting you will see a blue screen with some message at the top and some code at the bottom, please write them down and post them here.

In case you cannot even enter in Windows XP because is keeping rebooting too fast, try to do the above steps in Safe mode.
To enter in Windows in Safe mode you have to press F8 as soon as you boot and before you see the windows logo on you screen, then select safe mode and repeat the steps above.

Last but not least, please send me the exact type of motherboard, processor and memory that you are using.

My power supply went down, i put a new one in but it is a 20 pin the gigabyte is 24 pin,it fits but will not work, have i got to use a 24pin,i was told a 20 will work,i hoe u can help


Hi davids38,

I really recommend getting a 24-pin adapter Power Supply Unit (PSU). I had this problem once and did purchase a 24-pin adapter for my 20-pin PSU but my computer wasn't stable (random reboots and lock up). I purchased a 24-pin PSU and my computer worked fine ever since. Hope this helps.

Thanks

Usually blue screen errors are associated with hardware. Since you are experiencing problems after migrating the motherboard it has to do something with it.
Try removing the Jumpers and cables associated with the usb ports on your motherboard and refix them back. This will probably help you fix the problem (also make sure your jumper and cable configurations are correct - they can usually be found on *********** board manual)
If the problem still persists try taking the whole machine apart and refix it again.
Hopefully this will help you. Best Regards NextDoorNerd

Download a program called dban. http://www.dban.org/download and mount it on a disc with another computer. Place the disk in your computer and reboot. While loading look for the boot menu option and push the button. If you missed it reboot again. When the boot menu comes up select cd-rom drive or dvd-rom drive. The program should start up. Follow the directions on the screen by typing in autonuke. The program might run for a long time(probably overnight). After it is complete. Reboot you computer, take out the disc and reboot with your original XP Pro disc. Hope this helps.

Windows XP Pro hangs on reboot after installation


Try removing your AGP card and enabling the onboard graphics again. It is possible your Radeon is a 3.3v, but this board only supports 1.5v cards. Take a look at the manual at ftp://download.intel.com/support/motherboards/desktop/D845GERG2/BV2RG2_English.pdf
