I'm working on a computer with an ASUS A7S333 motherboard and a Windows XP Home SP2 installation. When trying to get into XP the computer reboots. It doesn't matter if its regular mode or any of the safe mode choices. I've tried Windows XP Ultimate boot CD and it freezes up when I try any of the diagnostic tools. I tried ghosting the drive and can't even launch ghost. I've tried different memory to no avail. I can read the hard drive connected to another computer.

Dear Mr. Yaseen; To install windows XP SP2, you will need a disk that self installs the windows. You will be asked very few questions. Now, who said that the computer does not see your drice? In order that we can check that we will need a Rescue Floppy Disk. When you bought the computer you were given two (2) CD/DVD, one contains the OS and the other the drivers. If the drive C is corrupt beyond repair, you will need the Rescue Floppy Drive, which open the way to MSDOS, upon which Windows XP SP2 is based. Remove all CD/DVD from the computer and insert the Rescue Floppy Diskette. It should start immediately. It will ask you one question, if you want to have CD/DVD help and you say yes. The rest will happen automatically and a new drive named "A" will be established: There is no drive "B" in normal windows; drive C is usually the "windows XP SP2" drive; drive D can be the C
hi, I think you have not finish yet your OS installation, when installing OS just wait for it till you have see the start menu pop-up then there you go, you can now remove your installation CD. And express gate is a browser included in your ASUS motherboard that lets you boot up in seconds and enjoy your stuff even your OS is not fully loaded yet..
Reinstall and during the install press F6 when it ask if would like to install 3rd party drivers and have the driver disk for your hard drive ready and install those when ask.once it is done it should complete the xp install and restart correctly.
1.) Check Device Manager for any "unknown" drivers, marked with a yellow exclamation point. If you find one that doesn't seem to belong to any of your other devices- you have your onboard. however, you may need to install the drivers for it.
2.) Check your BIOS. Some onboard cards have the ability to be enabled/disabled there.
Other than that, you could be looking at a dead card. All I can suggest if that's the case, to buy a new PCI soundcard to replace it.
