Question about MSI K9N6PGM-F Socket AM2/ nVIDIA MCP61V/ DDR2/ A&V&GbE/ MATX Motherboard [7309-040(K9N6PG... (MB-K9N6PGM)
Ok... i have a barebones kit... i had an asus motherboard however i thought it was defective returned for another but i am still having the same problem.. so here is my problem... windows xp freezes and can only boot into safe mode (not able to boot to safe mode w/networking either) each time i attempt to do a clean install i am able to load all the drivers except for 2 pci driver which i cannot find or recognize so i disabled it .. and still same issue... also during installation i press F6 to load my sata hard drive floppy either says the file is currupt or cant find it on my floppy,, i down loaded it to floppy and i do have the installation disk but safe mode wont let the cd auto install the drivers (since its in safe mode.) when all the drivers are installed i see that there are no errors they are all working properly.. but still freezes i tested different hds and they all have the same symptoms of freezing after install so i really hope it is not the processor.. i need help... what would the problem be???? i am able to access some files through cd rom in safe mode but can only go so far w/cd since safe mode wont let me run the full installation.. .. but i have no clue on what i need from the installation cd.
the OS is windows XP home edition
i have installed these hardware
motherboard - msi k9n6gm am2 socket (switched w/ASUS mobo same issue so mobo is tested ok )
amd athalon 64 X2 4400+
crucial ram DDR2 533MHz (i have 2 each were individually tested ok)
sata 80 GB ata hd ( i also attempted swap a different IDE hard drive had the same problem so the hd is tested ok )
If it will only boot in safe mode it means you have a driver conflict.
This is only a suggestion but try fresh reinstalling windows, with only basic xp drivers then install other drivers one at a time rebooting each time you do until you come across the faulty one. remove it or check its for xp not vista research net for correct one
