Soyo SY-P4VSA Motherboard - AGP version?


Nope, Jeff.

It uses AGP 2X, or 4X.

http://www.motherboard.cz/mb/soyo/SY-P4VSA.htm

Not trying to incur your wrath, but I would use that motherboard for a Frisbee.

Got to be one of the cr@ppiest motherboard manufacturers out there.
Hate to see you put money into it, just to have it fail down the road.

Plus, let's talk.......

How many other motherboards, do you think are going to use a AGP graphics card?

Getting a good deal? I understand.
Just hate to see you throwing your money away.

Thank you for letting me say that, hope I have not offended you.

Gatewat CX2724 original HD died (Hitachi 100GB @5400RPM) I just installed a brand new WD 250GB @7200RPM. Since I didn't have the original recovery disk I'm trying to install a full version Windows XP...


if you have a new hard drive you will have to install the windows operating system from an external source such as a cd drive
go to bios --boot settings and change from 1st boot hard drive to 1st boot cd
install the win os and then you can install the rest
when finished go back to bios and -boot and change back to 1st boot hard drive

Bios replacing


You will need to download the BIOS installation software for DOS if they have one from the motherboard manufacturer and the BIOS file. You will then need to make a bootable dos cd-r disc using windows. Once you have done this you can use the disc to start your computer in DOS mode. Then burn the BIOS DOS SOFTWARE and the BIOS FILE on a cd-r. Then you will be able to run the BIOS software from dos and install the bios file. You could also install windows on a USB hard drive then try to boot from it if your computer can boot from USB and the USB boot device option is still working.

Boot error always


Hello sir, hi your boot error can be caused by the following:
  1. Your IDE hard disk is not the first boot, and wrong available boot on the bios. Check your BIOS setup for proper boot device.
  2. Your IDE hard disk has bad serctors, since its P4, I estimate your drive to be 8 years or more. You may need to format the hard drive again and reinstall your OS (windows XP).
  3. IF your HD cannot be formated, or no amount of windows installation can be done on the disk, its time to replace it.
  4. Your IDE cannot be detected by the motherboard. check your BIOS configuration for proper hard disk setup.
  5. Your IDE hard drive and your CD drive are both master or both slave, set the hard disk to master and the CD drive to slave. The settings can be seen on the case of the HD and CD drive.
  6. Your IDE ribbon cable is bad.
  7. Your 4 pin molex power cable to the HD is loose.
If I miss out something, please let me know. thanks.

Soyo sy-p4vgm motherboard unable to access BIOS setup menu


Offcourse! first of all insert CD into CD ROM then boot from cd. Select your CD drive like d: or e: or f: etc and then press enter. Now give a commond format c:/u/v and press enter. After the formating drive you can install windows 98 so now reboot your system again. Then boot from CD once again and choose your drive and install windows.
2nd way, If everything could not be possible then you should boot from CD again then select your CD drive and type a command fdisk and press y or enter 2 times. Now you choose 4 number and press enter and check the drive format if it is not FAT32 its mean that you should press 3 and then press 4 and now press enter then press escape. Then press three button at a time Ctrl+Alt+Del now your system will reboot now once again Boot from CD and choose CD drive and type fdisk and choose 1 then choose1 and now press enter and once again press three button at a time Ctrl+Alt+Del now your system will reboot. Once again boot from CD and select your CD drive and now you can install windows 98 now insert CD into CD ROM then boot from cd. Select your CD drive like d: or e: or f: etc and then press enter. Now give a commond format c:/u/v and press enter. After the formating drive you can install windows 98 so now reboot your system again. Then boot from CD once again and choose your drive and install windows.
Thank You

Selecting Boot Device


If you want to boot from the IDE HD drive then you should get into BIOS and set it as the first boot device, followed by your SATA drive and CD drive. That should do the trick.

Hope this helps,
Sai.

Boot up issues will not boot up from HD


IDE and SATA do not mix unless setup properly.
I would use the SATA one as main hard drive and set the other up as an external one on USB
Try resetting the BIOS to boot from CD
on ter lower part of boot screen will tel you the key to press to access the BIOS setup
Usually one of these keys
F2 CTRL+ESC or DEL
when in BIOS check and set to boot from CD

best thing to do is disconnect floppy, take all other board/pc card out of the computer remove cdrom, now you just have a hard drive
turn it on see where it goes. if it doesnt work try a different hard drive or just the cdrom but make sure you have boot from cdrom on in your bios.
