    Need more info, what exactly is it doing? If you need to re-install windows, boot from CD and run install, do a clean install.

You can find manuals and drivers at the Asus site >> www.asus.com But in the position you are now and your computer wont start try do this
Start it at safe mode pressing and holding the F8 key while booting. Use your original Windows XP pro CD to repair/restore your windows installation
Just follow the onscreen instructions.
If that wont work you may need a technician to remove your had disk, take copies of any usefull data you may have on it, reformat your hard disk and make a new windows installation.
Try to upgrade to windows Vista.

I have found that if using a previous used hd and just reformatting the drive wouldn't allways work with some software and some pci cards.
I found out that using a data eraser first on the hd,then installing windows fully,then add the add-ons(pci Boards) and software as directed works fine.

(data eraser) my software overwrites with 00 all of the drive including the system files.

Will not run xp pro i'm stuck in 2000 mode mother board is ak77 pro 133 vt8233 will not run xp pro i've been told im pretty much sol. Is this true?


If you have a valid Win XP Pro CD and want to install the operating system you'll need to format your hard disk drive. If you have allot of data on you're hard disk drive, (In Win 2000) Suggest you create a second partition within the free space of you're hdd and install windows XP Pro. Boot you're system with the XP CD. Pay close attention to the display screens. Follow the instructions for creating a second partition.
Format the new partition. (Quick). Install windows XP on the new partition. Once completed you can copy your personal data to win XP.
If you choose to keep the win 2000 partition and you do not wish to have a dual boot system than remove/delete the root files from the 2000 partition. These files; Autoexec.bat and Boot.ini. You're new XP Boot.ini should read like this;
[boot loader]
timeout=30
default=multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINDOWS
[operating systems]
multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINDOWS="Microsoft Windows XP Professional" /noexecute=optin /fastdetect /usepmtimer
Once you're satisfied an no longer need win 2000 use windows diskmgmt.msc from the run command to delete the win 2000 partition.
Win 2000 uses a FAT16 where Win XP uses the FAT NTFS.

Cheers!

CANT GET WINDOWS XP PRO TO COPY FILES TO A GX280


The problem is the driver for the sata hard drive. You would need to get that from the dell site and put it on a floppy disk, then at the start of the windows install select to install that driver. I ended up just installing the rc version of windows 7 and it worked out fine.

Nvidia nforcennetwork bus installation disk #1


Hi,
I have encountered the same problem with a repair to XP PRO Setup - repair due to a virus, where I didn't want to reinstall from scratch because of the programs that were already installed on C drive. The quickest way to circumvent is to hit Cancel (ensure you have a USB or PS2 mouse - wireless will freeze) repeatedly when provided with this prompt. You will receive other error messages prompting for other things later the process. With hitting Cancel at all of these prompts, Win XP Pro installed fine, and I was able to re-install the latest drivers for the motherboard and video card after Windows XP booted up.
