Hi,

To my knowledge, Windows XP upon installation marries itself to the chipset of the motherboard, hence changing motherboard would result to a looping BSOD (blue screen of death).

A way around this is to use an OEM Windows XP installer and choose the second repair option wherein Windows will not partition, format or delete the previous installation but reinstall most of the device drivers and other significant registry entries, dll files and others. A word of caution though, you should create a new user name aside from the administrator account and your former user account. It is very possible that if you use your old user account, Windows will over write the old and your files would be gone.

Just to be safe, do a backup of your critical files on a separate medium such as a DVD/CD or a flashdrive.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

If you change the MB you will definitelly need to re-install XP cause if you leave it just as is, the windows will try to "connect" to your settings of the old MB to the new one, because all drivers are stored in your system, so it will not work and will render your os unusable and will definitely result in a bluescreen.

    Windows not loading


    Hi,

    Appreciate the direct "Ask Me".

    Whenever Microsoft Windows XP is installed on a system, the OS is binded to the motherboard, specifically to the chipsets. I am assuming that when you replaced the motherboard, the OS was not reinstalled and it was still binded to the original Dell Dimension board, most likely an Intel 925X Express chipset. When the OS started to load, it could not find the original 925X chipset and instead finds itself confronted with Biostar VIA P4M900/VT8237A chipsets which is an unknown, hence the BSOD.

    You could try:
    • boot from CD drive with an XP installer and use the second repair option;
    • boot into Safe Mode (F8) and try to uninstall the Intel devices entries (except the CPU) and allow the system to auto detect (if it will) the new hardware;
    • backup your files and perform a fresh/clean install on the new motherboard.

    Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

    Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

    Asus P4S800-MX Motherboard video problem


    The system speaker is usually a set of four pins and you use the outside pair to connect the speaker. You may need to go to the Asus web site to download the manual if you don't have it. Try to reset the bios either by shorting the appropriate pins or by removing the battery for a while.
