Question about Abit NF-M2S Motherboard

1 Answer

NF-M2S restarts. When I exit Windows XP the computer is supposed shut down. But this restarts so I will have to brake the power. I have also notised that the HD spins all the time,even then no data transfer occurs.This makes the HD get hot. My older ATX PC:s have always entered the stand by mode when I have exit windows.And the HD have also entered stand by mode when no data transfer occures. Can this problems be solved by any change in the BIOS?

    I had one PCI to PCMCIA-card installed,when I removed that

    the PC stops for two sekunds so I can turn off the power.

    So it is a little improvement.Another problem with this

    motherboard is that this PC-card do not work.The drivers

    ar installed and the card are listed in the system.

    But the PC dont find the PCMCIA-card that I use for wireless Internet.I used the same PCI-adapter in the older ATX-computor,

    with the same operating system (XP pro) and there was

    no problem.How can I find that fault?

Hi! Hope this helps. Please consider other components or cards installed on your motherboard. Please try removing one at a time then have it start and shutdown if it works. For harddisk management please see the power management at control panel, select the how or when you are goin' to set your harddrive sleep, standby, etc.. We had also met "Standby Mode Problem", by cleaning viruses, spywares and even the registry it can be fixed. Please search for the right and specific tools. Goodluck!

Doesn't enable virtualization


To determine whether your PC supports hardware virtualization:

Step 1. Does my PC have a CPU with support for hardware virtualization?


Download and run the Hardware-Assisted Virtualization Detection Tool

If you receive the message This computer does not have hardware-assisted virtualization, your computer does not meet the hardware requirement for Windows Virtual PC, but you can still use Windows 7 XP Mode by running this hotfix. Be aware that XP Mode will run much better if hardware-assisted virtualization can be enabled.

If you receive the message Hardware-assisted virtualization is not enabled on this computer, go on to Step 2 below.

If you receive the message This computer is configured with hardware-assisted virtualization, download and install Windows Virtual PC and Windows XP Mode.

Step 2. Does my PC BIOS support hardware virtualization, and is it turned on?

Instructions to turn on hardware virtualization in your PC BIOS are specific to OEM models. It is important that after changing your BIOS settings the PC is completely shut down at the power switch before restarting so that the new BIOS settings can take place.

Examples for some models of some computer manufacturer's BIOS settings are below:

Sample instructions for your PC

Expand all

Dell systems

Depress the F12 key when boot menu text appears at startup

Select BIOS setup and depress the Enter key

Using the mouse, expand the Virtualization Support menu item by clicking on the plus to the left of Virtualization Support and select Virtualization

Check the Enable Intel Virtualization Technology checkbox

Click Apply

Click Exit

Fully shut down (power off), wait a few seconds, and restart your computer

HP systems

Depress Esc key when prompted at startup

Depress the F10 key to Configure BIOS

Scroll to System Configuration using the arrow keys

Select Virtualization Technology and depress the Enter key

Select Enabled and depress the Enter key

Depress the F10 key to save and exit

Select Yes and depress the Enter key

Fully shut down (power off), wait a few seconds, and restart your computer

Lenovo ThinkPad systems

Depress the blue ThinkVantage key when prompted at startup

Depress the F1 key to enter the BIOS setup utility

Using the arrow keys, scroll to Config and depress the Enter key

Scroll to CPU and depress the Enter key

Scroll to Intel Virtualization Technology and depress the Enter key

Select Enabled and depress the Enter key

Depress Enter key to continue

Depress F10 key to save and exit

Select Yes and depress the Enter key

Fully shut down (power off), wait a few seconds, and restart your computer

Acer

PCs capable of supporting Windows XP Mode have already been enabled and do not require additional configuration.

Asus

PCs capable of supporting Windows XP Mode have already been enabled and do not require additional configuration.

Samsung

PCs capable of supporting Windows XP Mode have already been enabled and do not require additional configuration.

Panasonic

Depress the F2 key when boot menu text appears at startup

Select Advanced menu in Setup Utility

Change "Intel Virtualization Technology" setting from Disable to Enable

Depress F10 to exit Setup Utility

Select Yes in confirmation menu

Depress Enter to exit confirmation menu.

Please note the instructions above may not work in all cases and consulting with your computer manufacturer may be necessary. Additionally, we expect hardware virtualization to become more available when Windows 7 is shipped, particularly in business-class PCs. For those PCs that come pre-installed with Windows XP Mode we recommend the computer manufacturer turn on hardware virtualization before shipping the PC.


Once you have confirmed your PC supports hardware virtualization
Download and install Windows Virtual PC and Windows XP Mode

hope this helps

I am not sure if you have tried this, but take one stick of ram put it in the first slot. Try to boot if it beeps or not, power down and move to the next slot with the same chip (we are assuming this is a good ram chip). Repeat for every slot on the computer. If you have 1 or 2 slots that beep and the rest do not; bad slot on the mother board. If all slots beep, try a different chip (bad ram??). If no slots beep, repeat steps with each individual ram chip (you could have just one or two bad and causing all the issues).

Hope this helps

Install windows error 35% device install


I bet you have SATA Hard drive? Your installing windows XP? Go into BIOS and change the SATA setting to act like IDE and it should install OK. Other wise you need a SATA driver disk for when you first install, use the F6 and insert floppy disk with SATA driver.

What version of Windows are you installing?

unfortunately that is the problem. sooner or later it will just not boot up. If you are capable and want to get in to it, you can change the capacitors. if not look for a board. try ebay or pricewatch. they may still have one that would fit your processor. =)
