This sounds like it could be a heat issue. When you're in windows, you're using the processor more than if it just sits idle in BIOS. Using your cpu creates more heat. Make sure there is no dust in the fan or the heatsink on the cpu. Also, remove the heatsink and clean the old thermal grease compound off the heatsink and cpu and reapply fresh thermal grease.

Black screen on boot on biostar mcp6p m2+


That board has a built in video card if I have the right info. If you are using an external video ie plug in card then you need to make sure the onboard video is disabled or that the plug in card is designated as the main video card. Not doing either of those will cause the black screen.

Hi-low beeps at boot. System won't even get to BIOS.


That is probably your ram. If you have more then 1 stick remove them and install one at a time in slot 1. If that isn't it you need to count the beep and duration of the beeps. I can then look up the codes. I will also need to know your bios manufacture.

I have AMD Athlon XP 2200+ m7vit bravo m-b


All current 333 MHz capable Socket A chipsets (VIA KT333, KT400, nVIDIA nForce2, SiS 746FX) should be compatible with Barton based processors although you may need to flash the BIOS for the processor to recognized properly
your board has a 333mhz front side bus so should be capable of running them
You must ensure that the cpu is for 333 mhz and not more and that it fits socket A which your board is
Please post rating thanks

Geforce fx5500


timber710,
Please remove the geforce fx5500 video card. Blow out the AGP slot with some canned air. Re-seat the video card & make sure you install it with even pressure (front to back) with slight rocking motion untill the card is completly seated. Try running the system again. ( I'm thinking the card was not completly seated).

If your system freezes again re-set your cmos / bios. In your user manual pg. 2.
Boot to the bios & re-setup all your settings. Save & exit.
If your PC still freezes, try another AGP card because the 5500 seem to be defective.

So hate giving out bad news........

Cmos resetting


Ok so you know the bat is good cause you checked the voltage. You double checked the bios jumper making sure it is not set to clear. Looking in your manual you can go to AMD XP3200+, & you are under that. So either you have a short or your bios needs flashed because it's messed up. Could have went when the cpu died.

P4M80-M4 not powering up


You may have the power and reset connectors on the right terminals, but they may need turning around, normal rule of thumb is if the markings on the connectors are on the outside, then turn them to face inwards.
