    Dear Mr. Mellomania,

    Thanks for a prompt reply and nice interactions.

    As recommended by you I have reformated the C drive of hard disc and started loading Window Xp professional service pack-2. After copying all files when window installation was in progress following message appeared and Comp shut down :

    QUOTE :

    "A problem has been detected & window has been shutdown to prevent damage to your computer.


    If this is the first time you have seen this stop error screen, restart your computer, if this screen appears again follow these steps

    Check to make sure any new hardware or software is properly installed. If this is a new installation ask your hardware or software wanufacturer for any windows update you might need.

    If the problem continue disable or remove any new install hardware or software disable BIOS memory options such as caching or shadowing. If you need to use safe mode to remove or disable component restart your computer, press F-8 to select advanced startup option and then select safe mode.

    Technical information

    *** stop: 0X0000000A (0X408CE160, 0X00000002, 0X00000000, 0X80818652)"


    Following are the difference in the message on monitor on 26th and 27th May 2008

    On 26th May before formate :


    and after reformate on 27th May 2008 the message displayed was :

    (2) Another CD of window was used for insatallation and system is ok now.

    Thanks once again for solution, help and prompt reply to my queris

1- the problem is a software problem your board and processor are ok.

2- the message you saw indicates curruption in the windows files its strongly recomended that you install a new copy of windows even if the erors could be recovered..
reformating your hard disk is necessary to reinstall a new coppy of windows.

My computer won't boot up, it will beep three times (does not repeat). According to the "Intel Destop Board D975XBX2" Manuel it says the memory is bad, So I swapped it out but I am still...

The one that told about memory is bad, he is correct, that beeping sound from your board means memory deficiency.
Best way is to put one memory at a time just to test which memory card is defective. If both is defective, try to put a new one.
Upon booting up, the memory can be seen.
Hope that helps you out.

When you load an OS and you press F6 to load raid or SATA drivers, where is this information stored? Is it on the bios, CMOS, or on the hard drive that you are attempting to install?

Actually, the RAID and/or SATA drivers to be loaded using the F6 option have to be provided by you. They can be loaded from a USB flash drive or an external floppy drive.

The process is as follows:

1. You proceed to your motherboard/hard drive manufaturer's support site and locate the driver for the hardware you need it for.

2. You put that driver on one of the two media devices (floppy or flash) being sure you've carefully read the instructions for loading that driver in such a way that Windows can receive and install it.

3. You attach that media to your computer before you boot into the install disc and when prompted to press F6 do so. Shortly after you'll reach the point where the Setup asks for the RAID oe third party driver and you need to direct it to the driver by browse and choose the media if it doesn't find it by itself.

4. Highlight the driver in the selection window and click/hit enter however prompted to do so.

If you've executed all steps correctly, the driver will load and setup will continue an compete successfully.

Best Ragards and Good Luck!

My computer turns on shows the black hp screen and then immediately goes black with a cursor in the upper left screen

I have had this problem and have been one of the lucky few to get round it, however i believe i may know the cause or part of the cause for this, and a way to get round it hopefully. I got this issue after an unfortunate power cut, the system started up but then shut down again unexpectedly, after that i got this 'black screen of death', i then went on to many forums to find out the best options for solving this, i knew there was a definate way to fix the problem with a full destructive recovery with the recovery partition you get with vista, however i didn't want to lose all my data so when the computer starts up tap f8 until you get several menu options. the top option should be 'repair my computer', you should now have a very basic log in window which has your username, (if you have no password just press enter). now you should have several options of recovering or repairing your PC. the most successful so far is a normal windows restore which takes the computer back a few days, i would recommend a week to 2 weeks if available. once completed this should get rid of the 'black screen of death'. once logged on run command prompt with administrative properties then type in 'sfc /scannow' this will hoefully find anything else which is currupt. i have found the main reason for this is actually vista's own way of performing better... on most people with this problem i spoke to had an option enabled on the hard drive by default : 'Enable write caching on the disk' : 'this setting improves disk performance, but a power outage or equipment failure might result in data loss or curruption' this option can be found by going into device manager - find your primary hard drive, right click, properties, policies. this is the closest ive found to a cause of this 'black screen of death'
the fixist good luck and have a nice day

Can i use lcd monitors for intel 845gvsr based desktop with pentium 4 processor. Till now I was using LG CRT monitor. Now i want to buy a new LCD monitor and planning for Samsung 18.5" 933SN PLUS LCD...

Yes, this should be possible. Just check the connector behind your graphics card to see if the LCD's cable can fit into it. If not, you can obtain a simple converter to enable you connect your LCD.

All the best

Sound driver i not get any sound frm my laptop built in sound


This is the best way to download the drivers of all your devices which are connected to the system for free.

You can download the Driver Magician from this link :

Download the reg key from this link :

then doule click & select ok.

Run the program and select update drivers, it will list the list of pdated drivers.

Select the drivers and select download drivers.

If it does not download just select the driver you need and at the bottom you would see a link,

Just copy that link and download from your browser or download manager, I use orbit downloader.


You can also try this :

Good Luck.
