Test your PSU or replace it if your power supply units fan is not working your PSU is faulty

One bad lead can cause a computer to continue on a cycle or to shutdown or fail to detect/ boot up a computer hard drive

Test all leads that attach to your hard drive including electrical extensions,IDE,SATA

the leads from your "((motherboard to your hard drive))" make sure they have a secure connection and are not faulty or just replace them they could be faulty
make sure all leads that are attached to your drives dvd\cd 3 1/2 inch floppy have secure connections and are not faulty even the electrical extensions or just replace them they could be faulty a computer needs its connections to continue its cycle and have an end so any faulty leads will end up with a computer error hope this helps

I have mainboard asus p4s800-x i have hard drive 160 GB(SATA) but time reset show me no divice SATA found i do disable chip sata on mainboard and agine enable chip but no effective


If you are using Windows XP, you will need to download the Sata driver for this motherboard, save to a USB or floppy on another computer and when installing windows xp, at the "f6" prompt, direct it to where you saved the driver (ie: make sure the floppy / usb stick is plugged into the computer you are insytalling to), it will install the sata driver and then it will recognise your hard drive, no need to disable the sata chip on the mobo

How to install windows xp in msi k8mm-v motherboard?


Hi dharmen_shah,
I see that you need to install Windows XP on you Dekstop with an MSI Motherboard k8mm-V.
I have another desktop using the same Motherboard, there are 3 options installing Windows XP on the machine.
  1. Using an IDE Optical Drive
  2. Using a SATA Optical Drive "not a common installation process on this motherboard" since you will need to install the SATA rivers first to be able to use your SATA ODD
  3. Using a USB Flash Drive
See steps below for each installation type.
*Using an IDE Optical Drive*
  • If you have your Windows XP CD insert it on the Disc Drive restart the system as soon as the system restarts keep on tapping F11 this will bring you to the Boot menu.
  • Once in the Boot Menu screen select your Optical Drive, it may say dvd/cd or ODD, select this and press enter. Note: windows may restart during the installation if it says press any key to boot to cd do not press anything anymore leave it will do everything on it's own unless prompted for any user information like a computer name date and time.
  • You will see on the screen Boot to cd: then it will show "press any key to boot to cd" press Enter or any key this will boot from your cd Windows XP.
  • Then you will see inspecting your hardware for configuration, once it boots to your Windows XP cd you will see a blue screen Loading up drivers and stuff for the installation of Windows XP.
  • Next will be the installation of Windows XP itself, just follow the prompt it is very easy to follow and it will give you all the details and what buttons to click on.
  • Note: Select Quick Format (NTFS) this will be faster reformatting your Hard Drive before installation.

*Using SATA Optical Disc Drive*
  • You will need a 1.4 floppy disc to be able to do this.
  • If you have a 1.4 Floppy Drive you will also need to download the SATA driver from the MSI website.
  • Let us disregard this option since I believe you do no have a 1.4 Floppy Disc Drive and no one uses that or has a 1.4 Floppy Drive anymore on their machines.
*Using a USB Flash Drive*
  • To be able to use a USB Flash Drive for the installation of Windows XP your USB Flash Drive should at least be 1GB or 2GB, 1GB will be enough since windows XP only uses at least 7++gb of disc space for the installer size.
  • Using you USB Flash Drive you will need to copy the whole contents of your Windows XP Cd into your USB Flash Drive, don't worry this will be bootable just make sure that you copy everything from the disc into the USB Flash Drive.
  • Once you have copied Windows XP on your USB Flash Drive insert it to one of your USB ports on the machine then restart the computer.
  • Restart the system as soon as the system restarts keep on tapping F11 this will bring you to the Boot menu.
  • This will be the same as using your Windows XP cd but instead you will need to select USB in the Boot Menu then press enter. on the installation steps it will be the same as installing using a disc.
  • Note: Select Quick Format (NTFS) this will be faster reformatting your Hard Drive before installation.
  • Windows may restart during the installation and using a USB Flash Drive will be different at this point because it will boot directly to the USB, Once it restarts and may repeat the installation all over, to prevent this as soon as the system begins to restart from the installation go and keep on tapping "Delete" once it restarts this will bring you to the BIOS screen press F9 to set it to defaults then press F10 to save and exit this will restart again.
  • Once it restarts after setting the BIOS to defaults let the system boot on its own it will then show you a screen asking what windows to install the first thing highlighted will be the installation that was halted earlier just press enter then it will show you the windows installation page and will continue on it's own.
This is based on my own experience since I have an older Desktop that has the same Motherboard, I hope that I have given you all the options possible to installing your windows XP on your Motherboard k8mm-v.
Have a nice day,

Hardrive not detected


You may have a hardware fault.
Try re-seating the hard drive.
Then check the BIOS to see if the hard disk is detected.
If the hard disk is not detected then either the hard disk is faulty or the disk controller on the motherboard is faulty.
To further test the hard disk, remove the hard disk and connect it to an USB hard disk adapter and plug it into a working computer's USB port. If this computer cannot see it as an external hard drive nor can you open the various folders and files, then the hard drive is faulty.
Then you need to replace the faulty hard drive, install Windows on the new hard drive, together with the laptop's device drivers and your programs to get a working laptop again.

My computer worked properly. but at once my IDE devices started giving troubles. my 2 IDE devices are not detected at the start up.


The BIOS will have trouble detecting faulty IDE devices, eg the hard disk etc.
To check if the IDE devices are faulty, connect the hard disk to an USB hard disk adapter and plug it into a working computer's USB port, if the computer detects it as an external hard drive and you can open the folders and files then the hard drive is OK and the fault is the disk controller. If the hard disk is not detected then it is faulty and a new hard disk is needed, Windows installed on the new hard drive together with the device drivers and your programs to get an fully functioning computer again.

Comp doesnt boot after installing USB 2 drivers


Hi rogueonline,

Disconnect the external drive from the PC. (It's possible windows registry is messed up).
It sound like your windows system is a bit confused as well. First try resetting the bios. See page 9 in your manual. (Don't forget to set it back to normal). This should allow you to get back into the bios. Go over each setting & adjust as needed.
Make sure your primary hard disk drive is listed in the boot order. Advanced Setup Page 30, in manual. If your windows operating system seem is a bit off (OS not installed correctly or driver software not installed correctly). The over-all function of the system can & will run slow. If your primary drive seem to also run slow, the FAT or MBR can be slightly corrupt which will also slow the drive down including file transfer & eventually the drive will cease to function. (The drive can be repaired by doing a full format through windows).
Do a fresh install of windows, including the full format, (Not a Quick format) on the primary drive. Even though ECS does include the USB 2.0 driver so does windows update service. If your windows was all ready updated & you re-installed ECS's (2003) USB driver, that may have been enough to screw up windows. If you have data on your current drive & need to get that data off & if you have access to another system you can pull your drive & slave it into another system & remove the data. There is no quick fix. Play it safe. Start from scratch. After windows has been installed & you install the ECS driver software, update windows until there are no updates left. I'm sure your system will regain its speed.

Good luck ogueonline!

Abit Guru AI7 Windows Freezing


Hi Tinker_McGee, after installing you're virus protection did you run a full system scan? To make sure there is no virus being held in memory, please shut down the PC. Unplug the power cord. Remove you're memory for about 15 seconds & than firmely reseat. Reconnect the power cord & load windows. Shut off windows system restore. (Right click on My computer once & left click Properties. Click System Restore tab. Leave off until you run a full scan.
What is the name of you're hard drive? (If you say Maxtor), that can be you're problem. I personnaly know alot of people whi have had nothing but weird problems with their Maxtor hard drives.
I gather from you're last post everything went well for a little while during set-up of you're drive.
So, if it's not you're hard drive it can be any other device causing lock-ups. Let's try this. Boot the PC into you're bios.(Press the delete key every two seconds till you're at the main menu of you're bios). You want to go to, PC Health Status. Here you should be able to monitor the CPU's temperature & the mother board's temperature along with voltage & the CPU fan speed.
Stay here in the bios for awhile. Just walk away for about 10 minutes. We want to make sure the PC is not overheating or that the CPU's fan speed has dropped too far. Next, lets test you're memory. This might be hard to do if you're system keeps freezing because it involves downloading from the internet. Goto this link. http://www.memtest.org/
Scroll down the page till you see, -= Screenshots =-
Just below the three pictures is,
** Memtest86+ V2.01 (21/02/2008) ** Typed in red. Pick the file of you're choosing. Since windows is giving you a hard time, I suggest you download the bootable floppy disk software.
Download - Pre-Compiled package for Floppy (DOS - Win)
You can download the bootable CD software if you wish.
Once done, test you're memory. The only removable device is you're video card & I do not think it is that. Unless it is overheating. Over all everything you are doing is installations.
Installations primary device is you're hard drive. Last 2 questions. Did you connect a small internal speaker on you're board? When you boot the PC do you hear POST a single beep?
Keep me informed when trying the above.

Again Good Luck!

Mike
