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.

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

Overheating problem, with fan stopping randomly


If it's overheating it's possible that either there's a problem with the fan, or the fan/heatsink is clogged with dust. If you know how to open up the laptop you can do that and use a can of compressed air to clean it out which may solve the problem. If not you'll have to replace the fan.

EM-500 sync problem


There have been issues with the cradle PCB on the EM-500. Casio has redesigned the same added an IC & a few additional componentes. I had similar problems & simply could not connect through the USB port. Worked flawlessly with the accessory serial cable (direct connection - no cradle ). This also was on an XP system. See if you can wangle out a free replacement/fix for yout cradle from Casio.
