I have a k8m 800 mother board with amd processor 1gb ram 500gb sata and LG sata dvd writer, my system is not working it is restarting. it is working only under safe mode. attemting to reinstall xp, first...

I would suggest that after windows copy all the driver in to your hard drive, instead of choosing a new or fresh installation you choose the letter "R" for and then 1 for the directory. Windows will attempt to recondition or reinstalled missing system files.

Hi I am having some trouble in reformatting my laptop. Their are two main issues with it. Its a HP Pavillion DV4-1540US..The first issue is that there is lot of screen flickering and green and pink colors...

The first issue sounds like a bad LCD. I can help you with the second issue. You didn't mention which Windows you are installing but because of the sata controller issue I will assume you are converting from Vista to XP. Here is how you do it: You will need to slipstream the sata drivers onto the XP installation disk. You will need to download these two programs: nLite, and CDburnerXP.

nLite is a program to slipstream the sata drivers to the XP install disc. CDburnerXP is a program you can use to copy entire disks and create and burn ISO images. Next you need to download the sata drivers for your laptop. Both ICH9 for Intel, and sata for AMD are HERE. Download the correct version for your laptop and save this link as it also has all the XP drivers for a DV4.

Put your XP installation disk in your computer and copy the disc to a folder using CDburner. Now start nLite and point it to that folder to reference it to an XP installation. When you get to the modify screen select add drivers, select entire folder and browse to the sata drivers you downloaded. Continue and tell it to create an ISO image. After that is complete you can go to the ISO you just created and double click it to burn a fresh installation disk using CDburner. Now you have an installation disk that will install XP. After XP is installed go back to the link I gave you to download all the XP drivers for your laptop.

Is this hard drive a SATA hard drive?
If it is a SATA hard drive Windows won't detect the hard drive because the Windows XP installation CD has not got a SATA driver.
To install Windows on a SATA hard drive, please click on this link and follow my instructions :-
Normal 0

If the hard drive is a IDE drive then, the hard drive may be faulty, especially if the BIOS cannot detect the hard drive.

FUJITSU MHT2060B-SATA hard drive driver wanted

Get the drivers from the motherboard homepage, extract the file at a floppy or USB, and start WinXP installation from your cd. At the begining at the bottom line is a message like "for ... drivers press F6 to install" Press F6 and after sometime the will prompt you to provide the drivers from the floppy. In the WinXP sp3 the generic SATA drivers are already on the installation cd.

HDD not recognized whe installing fresh Windows XP!


If your HDD will not recognized during installation you need to check if your HDD is detected. Try to look at your BIOS if it is detected. IF the HDD will not detected you need to replace the cable, try to use the other slot of your SATA or IDE ports.

you need your windows xp disc preferably slip streamed with SP 2 or SP 3 and then you should be able to install it onto your sata hard drive.

If you are having issues then you may need to extract the sata drivers onto a memory stick or floppy disk and press F6 before windows xp loads and specify to use the sata drivers which you can download from the motherboards manufacturers website generally as a zip file which you will first need to extract into a folder.

If that does not work using the memory stick you can use nlite to slipstream the drivers with your windows xp disc :

Nlite download
