Ok the parts list, P4 2.8ghz 512cache 800 mhz cpu, 1675 mobo, 512/ 333mhz ram, western 80g hd, generic dvd drive, !micro/ atxp4 2,03 swicthing powersupply, generic atx case, windows xp pro with service pac 3. ati radeon 2400 pro 8x 256mb video card. Can't get this thing to boot comes to the win xp screen the little blue thing that scrols back and forth but the blue dot never comes up and then it cycles. win did not start properly blah blah blah. have tried 5 different video cards and the only time it booted all the way to the desktop was when we put in a card out of an old dell horizontal desktop i have no idea what it was. we had to take the bracket off the front to get it to go in but it worked. any body got a clue? I'm thinking the 8x card dosen't like the 1.5v bus???maybe the old dell card was a 4x??? each of the components have been tested in my other computers and appear to work properly when substituted. help, please.

Re: D1675 Boot problems
Hi ghoompah, It's easy to tell if an AGP card supports 1.5volt. Look at the contacts (Copper) key of the video card. There should only be two key connectors. (This does not include the locking tail).
If there are three connectors than the card is most likely 3.3volt.

Many 8x speed cards are backward compatible with a 4x speed AGP. Other than looking at the video card it's self it's best to look at the AGP slot on the board. Count the sperations in the AGP slot. (Also known as keys).
a 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

This sounds like an OS issue. Like some component is corrupted. I would try to boot in to safe mode and see what happens. If it works in safe mode than i would say it is some kinda software or driver issue. Might even be antivirus software. If you cant boot in to safe mode, have you tired to reload windows. If this is not possible because pc wont run long enough in safe mode or allow to start system reinstall i would remove all components like cd/dvd rom. just unplug the power and ide/sata cable. Re-seat Hard Drive cable(power and connection) remove all external devices like usb keyboard and mouse, printer and what ever else you have. I would also try to remove cmos battery for 1 minute just to reset it. Hope this helps.

Ubuntu works with RAM and CPU Memory instead of a pc like xp that uses Virtual RAM. If the pc that could not load ubuntu doesn't have enough ram to support the reading of the Hard drive and the Operating System then it won't work and Xp will only run on the computer that xp was installed onto the hard drive.
Try to remove the battery from the MB, and next time you try to install WIN XP, when you are asked how to format your drive, chose quick NTFS formatting; disable floppy drive in BIOS, because it might try to boot from it (and I suppose you don't have one), and in boot sequence (BOOT DEVICE PRIORITY) set cd-dvd as first, and HDD as second, and turn off any other device as bootable
Pull out the new RAM chips and install the old one or ones and see if it boots ok. I had this same problem. This can also be caused by no using matched sets of RAM chips. In my case I added one and used the factory one as well, caused the same issue as you have.
Its easy to test your MB and CPU.
Just remove all components from *********** board, like CD-ROM, DVD disk, HDD, FDD or any PCI or USB component.
Add a speaker to *********** board.
Add CPU, and without RAM.
Now switch on, there must be along beep for RAM not found, if you don't get any beep it means your MB or CPU is faulty.
In other case if you got the long beep, then switch off and add your RAM to MB and switch on again. Now you will get an ok beep. It means every thing is ok.
Now attach your Keyboard and monitor and listen if you get the ok beep or not and also see the monitor there must be light on your screen and message to insert bootable disk.
If every thing is passed ok, then add your HDD and boot.
