Power failure right when it gets to one


looks like a windows-related problem.
try if your keyboard works at all by entering bios but do not change anything. just quit saving no changes.
does it work?
if yes, possibly a windows error.
to check :
- try booting from a windows-cd(XP), not from harddisk, without going through install process, execute the repair process instead.
- reboot from your harddisk in safe mode.
everything o.k.?

if still the problem, and don't have any personal data you might loose on harddisk(hdd)
reinstall windows xp anew, but this time let it format the hdd fully, then go on installing a clean, new copy of win XP.
when still facing the problem, plse come again

NO INTTALEDWIN XP IN SATA HDD


you need your windows xp disc preferably slip streamed with SP 2 or SP 3 and then you should be able to install it onto your sata hard drive.

If you are having issues then you may need to extract the sata drivers onto a memory stick or floppy disk and press F6 before windows xp loads and specify to use the sata drivers which you can download from the motherboards manufacturers website generally as a zip file which you will first need to extract into a folder.

If that does not work using the memory stick you can use nlite to slipstream the drivers with your windows xp disc :

Nlite download

Asus P4S800D-X mobo and sata hdd problem


I believe you need to load in the SiS 180 RAID controller for this MOBO during the Windows Install.

Do this by loading the driver onto a floppy and pressing F6 when told to do so by the windows install.
