Artisan62 Remember me? Vista Booting Problem!

PauldLucky hi, just to update you I took the PC for surgery and the Motherboard was at fault? I'm surprised because as far as i can understand ABIT has quite a good reliability profile and as i probably told you it has already had 2, so this will be its 3rd. I have tried to contact ABIT in Taiwan and Australia with no response as yet. Anyway the thing is the board currently in the machine is an ABIT AN8 AMD Athlon 64/64FX socket 939 CPU. The shop resposible for repair has said the board is dated and hard to source but would like to replace the M Board,CPU and RAM with an INTEL alternative. When the machine was built there was a reason for not using INTEL, i can't remember what that would be now.
What's your veiw on the changeover ? Thank's for your time, I'm grateful to you. Regards Artisan62

Compaq 615 laptop just hung, i removed the battery then tried to boot again but showed nothing


Hi

Not enough information.

It would be helpful to know if this machine running XP, Vista or Win 7.

Can you hear the CPU beep during boot?

Do the lights come/blink on on the front of the laptop?

All this information is important if you want accurate advice to help solve your problem.

If you have a desktop PC monitor available, connect this to the laptop's VGA port and press the Fn (function) key simultaneously with the F5 or F6 key (the key showing 2 monitors) while booting, to send the image to the external monitor.

If you can see images on the external monitor, then your laptop may have (in ascending order of seriousness/cost of repair), an LCD panel inverter fault/failure, a cold cathode backlight fault/failure, an LCD panel fault/failure, a graphics card fault/failure, a motherboard power management system fault/failure, a motherboard fault/failure.

Sorrry to not be able to be more precise.

Hope this helps.

Wont boot up


You should kindly explain how it started, what happened and symptoms you see.
Try this:
1. When you try booting and you can see your operating system (OS) e.g 'Windows Vista' appearing on the screen and not giving you a successful booting, then repair repair Windows or formating using your Operating System software.
OR
2. When you try booting and you can't see anything on your screen or not even a sign of booting, try and confirm if your motherboard is still good. And if bad a pin board can be fix and pinless board unfixablr.

My srceen goes Blank


Hi,

first try booting the laptop and pressing the Fn key with the numerical ( numbered key ) that has a picture of 2 screens on it. This is for booting to an external monitor. you could also try adding an external ( pc monitor ) this will eliminate any motherboard Faults.

Secondly, the graphics chip driver may be corrupt or not installed correctly. if you have a restore cd, you could try booting the laptop, with the cd in the drive.

you can then try, to see if the settings in the bios are all correct, by booting/starting the laptop and pressing esc or F2 or delete immediately as the laptop starts. ** Be-Careful** what you adjust.
My suggestion is to look for. ** default settings tab** or load setup defaults.

these are the obvious things to try, before assuming that you have a faulty graphics chip or motherboard fault.

Will not install Vista Service pack I. Also update for Vista HP Photosmart Essentials 3.5


Hi,
For installing vista you need minimum requirements of 1 gb ram, and 256 mb graphics and *********** board should support. First make sure that your motherboard or the system supports the Windows Vista operating system. Otherwise we can not install. Go through the motherboard manual once. Thank you....

Recognize the new mother board?


Before you install the new motherboard make sure you have all of Windows updates installed on the hard drive. Microsoft is working hard to include many new devices all the time. You should have no problem booting into Vista after the motherboard is intalled and your motherboard should come with a driver disk to install any drivers that Vista may miss.
