The problem is after re installing the XP i auto ran the tmotherboard cd and the VGA drivers didnt install i then checked with VIAarena.com for the drivers downloads for XP got them but never worked on XP pack 2 but suprisingly after installing XP Pack 1 the VGA drivers installed but no Sound i then reverted to XP pack 2 and sound came back and no VGA. I GOT THIS SNAPSHOTS A DAY BEFORE THE MACHINE REFUSED TO BOOT UP. NOW ON BOOTING THE MACHINES SHOWS THE WINXP WINDOW BUT NEVER BOOTS UP JUST A SILVER SCREEN . PLEASE HELP ME OUT OF THIS MESS.

I think that you are mistaken something, I could'n find pvm900 at viaarena, no results at all.

If you use SP2 upgrade pack...well don't, some old peripherials refuse to work with the upgrade pack, instead install from full OEM cd or stick to SP1, I have some customers that still work with win98 and xp SP1 very well.

Try this: first update your DirectX software from microsoft, link: http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyId=2DA43D38-DB71-4C1B-BC6A-9B6652CD92A3&displaylang=en

Hope you are a genuine windows user because you need to be to get it, download and install.
If it did not solve the problem...enter windows in "safe mode" (F8 while loading computer), press "yes" to the question asked,

start-->control panel-->system-->hardware-->device manager-->open the + at the "display adapters" right click over the display and choose uninstall, do the same at "sound,video and mult..."
log off while shutting down the computer, turn on, windows will prompt for the device driver (once for display and once for sound), point to place where the display or sound card drivers are, if there are not recognized as valid drivers, maybe they are not compatible with OS, search for compatible soft at driverguide.com

I have intel 101 Ggc Mother board and intel pentium D processor , i was using 756MB ram (512+ 256MB) RAM. But after i brought 1 GB ram and Used it instead of 256 MB Ram the system started restarting...


There is a chance that you have faulty RAM module. If computer is stable on POST (until Windows boot-up) I would suggest to use some testing tools to test that RAM with your motherboard. There is a good program called MemTest. You can find it online if you search Hirens Boot CD. Download it, burn image to disk, put 1GB RAM into motherboard, start-up PC and boot from CD. Then you'll search for Memtest program. I would suggest to leave PC for at least 6 hours for testing to find out if it's faulty or not (better to leave for 24 hours).

Im not sure how much ram to use with my motherboard.


Your board can support 4Gb of RAM.

CLICK HERE for the SPEC sheet.

HERE is the memory support list, there is only 1 type of KINGSTON 2GB stick that is listed as compatible.

Make sure you have the latest BIOS as there are some known issues with this board and certain 4GB RAM configs as well as fixes for 1TB HDD space errors.

Always a good idea to make sure you have the latest XP service pack. In general, XP only recognises 3Gb RAM but mine runs fine with 4 in it.

When you crash, is there any Blue Screen of Death (BSoD) or any other output to your monitor or does it just shut down with no warning or error code or anything? If this is happening then you may be getting a CPU OVERTEMP condition.

Have you recently upgraded other components as well as your RAM?

Graphic Problem


This might be an issue with not having full rights within the BIOS, you could try to enter the BIOS and press F8 this sometimes reveals 'hidden' features.

Vista compatiable


intel doesnt list any vista drivers for that motherboard on there site so you might run into problems with the intergraded devices such as the ethernet,audio,chipset, & any intergraded video

You might be able to use the xp drivers but if theres problems it wouldnt be supported by intel
