Question about Asrock K7S41 Motherboard

ASRock motherboard, pc hangs on xp login screen

My ASRock motherboard is recognising the hard drive, cdrom, ram, floppy but has the cd rom as the main ide drive. It will load to a point but hangs on the xp screen, i have changed the cmos battery with no results, it is saying the cmos settings are incorrect but will not allow me to boot in safe mode or last known good config etc. It will allow me to go to the set up and make adjustments but when I press F9 for load optimal defaults it does not seem to change anything. I am totally at a loss as to what to try next, any help would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks
David
p.s. it will not let me run a cd restore or floppy restore disk either and is sending no power to the usb ports.

Am trying to reistall Win XP. Have run Fdisk and reformatted HDD. PC will not recognise install CD, keeps coming up with errors, does not find CD or HDD. Hav also tried running setup from floppy, again...


IF the hard drive is a SATA hard drive, you will first of all need to download the SATA drivers for te motherboard and copy them to a Floppy drive on another computer if yours will not work, this may also affect why it is not "seeing" the Cd drive if this is a SATA one too

Try installing Windows and when the message " press F6 if you want to ...." appears, have the floppy inserted in teh floppy drive so it can find thr SATA drivers, it will then recognise the Hard drive and install

If you have further problems please repost

Dell Optiplex GX50 won't load windows OS


Which cdrom is it? Is it a windows XP cd? This is an older PC? Does it have a floppy disk drive? Try downloading from Barts a bootable floppy disk, set boot order to floppy in BIOS, change to cdrom drive letter after booting to floppy (D:?)
got to I386 folder and set up from there.
More info would be helpful.

My pc recognises my dvdram as cdrom, after re installing.


Nothing to worry about, it all depends on what type of disc is in the drive at the time.

I cannot boot windows xp


Hi praph_wicked, normal order would be, floppy drive first, CDROM second & Primary hard disk drive third.
How ever if your bios does not comply you can always press the F8 key every two seconds & that should bring up (Please select boot device). Which will look like this;

Choose the CDROM drive with the windows CD in it.
If you have just one CDROM drive, make sure the jumper on the back side of the CDROM is set to "Master". If you have two CDROM drives connected, set one as master & the other to slave.
If using an IDE cable for the two CDROM drives. The CDROM at the end of the data connector is to be set as master, the 2nd CDROM connects to the next IDE connector & Its jumper is set to slave.

Good luck!

Motherboard will not boot from Hard Drive


Go into your BIOS with the appropriate key (printed on the screen when you first turn the PC on).

Look around the various menus for a "boot order" or something to that effect.

I'd usually set it for CDROM then HDD... but as long as the hard disk is actually in the list before anything else with a bootable disc in it, you should be fine!
