I the hard disk is making any noise while booting this is called as catastrophic failure .......

often this happens when the hard disk life span is over ...

just have a check with this ...

or check is there is any other device which is not connected properly inside ...
just for an example :
if you have connected 2 harddisk or 2 cd/dvd roms then you need to configure the jumper correctly for the master and slave if you have not configured correctly then also the boot up will take a long time or it will hang ...

so just have the check with this ....

and also check by going to BIOS setup (you can enter the bios setup by pressing " F2" or "delete" key during the time of booting before the OS loads....)
and also check in the BIOS does the harddisk drive or the cd/dvd drive are detected or not ....
if it is not detected then remove the IDE bus from the particlular device and then reinsert it ....
this will solve you problem ...

any doubts you can reply me
i am always here to assist you
thank you
bye
rate my solution

Mother board is ak77 pro 133 vt8233 will not run xp proI


Hi,
The BSOD (blue screen of death) usually means that a computer component has failed. This could be a hard disc drive, a memory module, the cpu, or the motherboard. I would start by checking out the hard drive first. See if it is spinning and not making any clicking sounds. Try replacing it if you have another one. Then check memory and cpu. Some people actually like having an old computer hanging around. They install Windows 98 in it so they can play old dos games and games that don't require a blazing fast processor! Good luck...Hank

MBd BIOS reqd as BIOS wrongly flashed and computer is not booting


BIOS information is needed to boot the computer, you must replace your BIOS chip. You can call the manufacturer of the motherboard and ask for a new BIOS chip.

Bios failure, or what?


Hi there.
Try clearing the cmos
d015d7b.jpg<<<<< you will see in the picture a plastic jumper (in this case coloured green), move it to the other position and hit the on/off button, then put it back in its original position and power up the machine again. Hopefully the issue will have been sorted. If there is no jumper remove the battery for an hour and make sure the power cord is removed from the back before you clear the cmos

Good luck and thanks for using Fixya!!

Hard drives show up in BIOS but not in My computer? WHATS UP?


You should not use line select on any of the drives at this point. Set the jumpers on the components to one master and one slave on each channel. Personally I would put one HD and one optical drive on each channel and make the optical drives the slaves but that's not required. Win98 uses a different file system than XP (FAT32 compared to the newer NTFS) but you can still use the drive. I would copy all the files you want to save and then reformat it using NTFS for better performance.

Boot into XP, both HD should show up when the jumpers are set correctly. If they still do not show up go into your BIOS and double check that all master/slave designations match what you have set the jumpers to.

Motherboard or Computer


have you used the auto hardrive detect in the bios, because it will still look for the previous drive, or highlight it in the standard cmos settings and enter it manually.

If you are swapping a hard drive from anothe pc with windows installed it will not boot as it won't recognise hardware, it has to be a clean drive.

CPU Upgrade


Athlon XP 3000+ is 400mhz FSB according to the link(http://www.amd.com/us-en/Processors/ProductInformation/0,,30_118_1274_3734^11672,00.html), means that in order to display the actual speed of your Athlon XP 3000+ you have to set your board 166mhz to 200mhz jumper setting or in CMOS utility overclocking option. and also just to inform you that your motherboard is in Overclocked condition when set, because it only supports processors up to 333mhz FSB (http://www.digital-daily.com/motherboard/soltek-sl75frv/)
