I always have problems installing sp2 from the scratch or as a repair in a previous stable Windows XP Installation. My system is stable without crashes only when i have the simple Windows pack. Is this motherboard suitable for sp2? I become crazy because i have this problems for over two years. How I can solve this? One of the messages I take always when for example run the antivirus is blue screen and STOP: 0x0000009c (0x00000000,8054DA70,0xC4104000) . I ran the Microscope diagnostics 2000 and Winternals in order to see faults in memory and analyze the crashes but there is no way to find out whats going on. Please any help? SOCKET A, AMD Athlon XP 2700+ 2167mhz,family 6 model 8,level 1, L1 cache :128kb,L2 cache:256kb, Memory 2x512 Twinmos Radeon 9200 series
Have you tried a Motherboard Bios Firmware Upgrade? It should be readily available on the Manufacturers Website.. There are a number of diagnostics you can do to pin-point the actual malfunctioning component, rest assured everythings stable with the softwares being used and the OS environment is virus/spyware free! you can 1st upgrade the Bios to the most latest (Non-Beta) version.. If that doesn't help, try a single 512mb Memory Stick, one by one and notice if that helps with the (BSOD) errors..

If your trying to install it over the current installation then select Format at the installation screen of XP setup. In order to do that you would have to boot from the disc, that way you don't have to load windows. Also when you have completed and installed XP, try to locate some software to detect what drivers you need. I use driver detective and it worked fine for me, or alternately send me a message and ill run you through how to check the motherboard for the version manually.
Hi niket_shah, sorry but you're board Asus M2N-MX, does support Win XP SP2.
Chances are that while installing windows updates one or more updates failed. People like myself know from repairing PC's which updates need to be installed first. If you're Win XP SP2 did not or would not install than either the Win CD is not a valid Microsoft Win XP SP2 CD or (You have a copy) & there is something wrong with the CD. After a fresh (New install) of Win XP with SP2 there is more than 90+ updates for SP2 which must be downloaded through windows update program. Or you're windows will not function properly.
Just to show you what versions of windows the M2N-MX board does support. Click the link listed below. Once the link loads click the + sign next to Audio. Scroll down the page an notice the different Window version listed for you're board. http://support.asus.com/download/download.aspx?modelname=M2N-MX&SLanguage=en-us
To recap this issue. The problem is either the WinCD or possibly you're hard drive. Make sure you allow windows to perform a full format before installing window. (Not a quick format).
