Question about Biostar GEFORCE 6100-M9 Motherboard

Windows loads on every other boot.

Ive installed a AMD 3500 x64 single core on a biostar Ge-Force 6100-m9, have dvd burner and cd burner, 350 watt antec ps, XP pro and floppy drive. I'm A+ certified and pretty much a geek. Windows loads every other reboot, otherwise sits on bios screen on every other. Running 2 512's in dual channel. clueless. any ideas?

    To map9966- though I knew my memory was fine I ran the floppy test since you went through the trouble of uploading. My mem tested fine. What I did find out is when I unplug my NEC1300 external usb burner (Backpack they called it 5 yrs ago), my windows boots fine every time. Tried a diff USB port (on back of PC) and had same prob. Haven't tried the front USB ports yet, but all I have to do is plug it in and it'll burn when I need it (I also have an internal DVD burner so it's not an issue), but can only boot with it plugged in every other time. Talk about strange ! My bios boot order is fine so it's a USB issue with this board. At least my USB printer is ok. Thanks for your time friend, and I too would have suggested a mem check first. Peace!

Let's try running a memory test program. http://memtest.org/
Scroll down till you see the three screen shots. Just under them pick you're choice of bootable media to test you're memory.
Download - Pre-Compiled Bootable ISO (.zip)
or
Download - Pre-Compiled package for Floppy (DOS - Win)

Luck!

You can get a manual here:

Did you set the boot sequense in your bios ??

First your CD or DVD drive
Second you harddrive.

Harddrive must be in sata 0.
CD or DVD must be in sata 1.

Or look in the manual how the settings should be.

Good luck.

I need to reinstall windows cause its corruped i can't get into the bios to restart pc from cd cause i don't know the pas word please help


You will have to reset the BIOS to factory. To do this, you will have to open the case and expose the motherboard. The motherboard will have a set of pins that when touched together, it resets the bios and wipes the password. You will have to locate this set of jumpers and short them.
Look at a map of the board, and look for the reset jumpers here:
ftp://ftp.biostar-usa.com/manuals/GEFORCE%206100-M9/GeForce%206100-M9_BIOS.pdf
If you can not find the reset jumpers, you can just take out the battery on the motherboard. It is silver, round and the size of a quarter. A simple clip holds it in place. remove it and put it back in.
Then put it all back together, and reboot. press the del key or F1 key durring the begining of the boot cycle and you will be able to able to access the BIOS to change the boot sequence.

I have a TDK DVD/CD burner that my computer does not recognize. When I turn it on my computer makes a sound like it knows it has been turned on but when I go to burn a music cd it says that there is no CD...


hi blgard,

please ensure u have wired up this internal combo drive properly,
- that IDE cables and power cable is connected, that the jumper setting
is properly(if using this as a single drive without any harddrive connected to the same IDE cable jumper must be set to single!)
- that in BIOS both ODE channels are activated and drive detection is set to auto

when done this properly, the drives will be listed when booting up(press pause button, right before windows is loading, to see list)

if not, use the other channel(echange IDE plugs on the mainboard), retry
and see.

when booting the green lamp of the drive should light up shortly!

then goto windows/setting/hardware, run hardware detection/device manager and wait for the new device to show up. Make sure you have the driver CD ready for windows will ask for it, (if you don't have another cd-drive ready, copy content of cd onto usb-stick/thumbdrive instead )
le win search for the drivers on the cd/usb-device,
proceed installing, finish and reboot.

if now windows can't find the drive (see win explorer)
but it is listed when booting up, get the latest drivers from the manufacturer's homepage and reinstall drivers!

I hope this works for You!

Hi,

you need to go into bios at startup, press F2 Or Delete Or Esc on bootup. When you get into the System Bios. Change the boot device priority from HDD To CD/DVD To boot first.
Save/exit And when you reboot ( with windows XP in the Drive ) you,ll get options to format or re-install.
