Cannot load windows

Have a Gigabyte GA-8KNXP bios rev 1, , 2.4 pentium processor with HT. 2-512 pc400 ram chips. HD is 120 gig sata no raid. I recently had to reformat because of spyware my son picked up. Computer was working well up till then. windows xp will not load. Keep getting error messages, different each time. Tried a different HD and a different windows disc. Used each of the 2 cd roms in the computer. Still get error messages at different stages of intalation. Cannot find an error in the bios. All hardware is detected and seems to be working.

    Tx for the replies. I did restore the bios defaults and then try again after disableing the raid. the ram registers in bios as 1gig running at dual channel with 400mhz frequency on the auto setting. Errror messages are usually that windows cannnot copy a file (different each time) even if i navigate to the file on the disc in the drive it does not copy. Then will get a blue screen that says setup needs to shut down in order to avoid damage to computer.

First of all remove the BIOS battery and re-set COMS setup. use default option for BIOS setting. And also try to install Windows with one RAM module installed... Your RAM might be faulty..

    I think one of your RAM is faulty so use one RAM at a a time.. please tell me, when you get the blue screen what it says..it says like PAGE_FAULT_IN _NON_PAGE_AREA or something else.. So please mention that msg...

Where is the Driver for a SataI HardDisk when installing Windows 7, which is attached to a Gigabyte 8KNXP Motherboard? The Gigabyte 8KNXP Driver Download site has a Driver but it's for Windows XP.


According to Gigabyte, you have a Silicon Image 3112/3152 SATA chip on that motherboard. Below is a link to the Silicon Image support page. Here, under the Product support pulldown you will choose either of the two numbers (3112/3152) and scroll down the list and you will find a driver for Windows 7 for 32 and 64 bit 3x12 chips (where the x is any number). They also say to use the newest BASE BIOS and there are tips to update the chip's BIOS. I've never tried this before, but hope you have good luck!

take out the processor chip and clock battery along with the ram while it is disconnected from the wall outlet and wait about 5 mins. after you put it back together, if the problem persists the processor might need to be replaced or the entire motherboard its self.
