Question about Computers & Internet

1 Answer

I have a Syntax K7 SV400 motherboard. The board will post but will not install the os. The bios recognizes the cd drive and the hard drive. When I try to install Windows 2000 Pro the cd drive spins and I get the message to hit any key to boot from cd. Then the system fails to read the cd. I have tried several different cd drives hard drives processors and memory sticks to no avail. Also when I change the jumpers from 100 mhz to 133 mhz or 166 mhz the system will not post. What is wrong with this board?

Nothing, first try the disk in a working pc & see if it auto-runs in windows,if it does then try a different ribbon cable on the cd drive. If it doesn't then the disk is dirty or damaged. Also, not accusing you but windows 2000 is probably the most burned copy of windows around. If this is the case, go to whoever you got the disk from & tell them to re-burn it at 4x if possible but no faster than 6x, then the disk will work. As far as the bus speed is concerned(the jumpers), if the processor is a 100mhz, that's all the faster it will operate. Especially on older pentiums,which it sounds like you have. Now the processors will go to a slower speed, like 166 to 100. Keep in mind when switching cpu's you must set the jumper to the matching or slower speed or it will not post. Also, that speed is half what the actual clock is, meaning, 100 is 200,133 is 266, & 166 is 333 mhz. So if it's a socket 7 or 380 board, you can run an AMD or Cyrix cpu instead of the pentium & use whatever speed you'ld like because AMD products back then didn't lock the multipliers. Also on those older boards, some won't run certain ram speeds, like if the board has 100mhz ram it may not like 133 much. Ram wasn't very backward compatible back then.

Not make instal xp new hard drive "seagate baracuda 7200.12 ST3500418AS, and my motherboard dont see hard for instal


It seems you are saying that the board will not see the new hd.
You need the instructions for the hard drive and the mother board to install the SATA drive.
Some motherboards may need to have the bios upgraded, if it can.
Others are too old.

Bois problems????


No - this is something that can generally only be resolved with a repair install of the XP.

The repair option can be accessed while doing a standard (i.e. boot from the CD) install. Note: this is a repair option after you select to install; not the repair/recovery options on the first screen.

It should detect your OS and ask if you want to repair it. This will cause you to have to reactivate windows, and I highly recommend having your drivers already downloaded and ready to be installed. Some programs my have to be reinstalled also.

There is a sysprep tool that can be used, but I've always found it easiest to do a repair.
