Question about Abit IC7-G Motherboard

My computer won't boot! It keeps restarting before Windows screen.

Hi there. My computer was giving me this error on boot:

"CPU is unworkable or has been changed."

I changed the jumpers on my CMOS to clear them, and tried booting again. Now I get no error, can't get into the CMOS screen... the computer gets trapped in an endless loop of booting and powering off. I can't even make it to the Windows screen.

    Wow, that was pretty fast!I'll give that a shot and let you know how it works.



    Thanks!

    Ok, unfortunately that didn't fix it, though thanks for the suggestion. I started getting a Checksum error, so I Googled a bit and found this suggestion:



    What you need is to perform an extended CMOS clearing procedure that is :
    Unplug the power cord from the PSU
    Pop out the battery
    Switch jumper from pins 1-2 to pins 2-3
    Press in and hold on the case power button for 30 seconds
    Wait 15 minutes

    Reinsert battery
    Switch jumper to pins 1-2
    Plug in the power cord
    Boot
    You will probably get the same message
    Go into the Set up, do what you want to do (date, time…)
    Save and exit
    Boot should be fixed



    So I did all of that, and was finally able to get into the BIOS settings, and while I was modifying everything the computer just restarted again. And now it gets stuck in a faster loop of rebooting, and I can't even make it back to the BIOS settings.



    Oy.



    Would a new CMOS battery do the trick, do you think? Or is this beyond that at this point?

    I have the same board.  My problem is that I can't get either of my P4s to work in the board.  Right now it WILL boot fine with a crappy celeron processor.  I get no video or post "beep" with either of my P4s in.  I've tried cycling power and all of that and still nothing.


    Weird thing is that I was able to get it working when I FIRST got the board, but then I would have his problem with constant rebooting.

Make sure the cmos jumper is plugged in. Turn off your pc, unplug the power source. Remove the cmos battery for 30 seconds then put it back. Reboot your pc. Give us feedback! Hope that helps :-)

How to boot up computer in safe mode.


Now to get to safe mode, is a couple different ways depending on your OS.

For Windows 7
  • During boot up, press F8 before the windows splash screen, this should give you the option to boot up into safe mode.
For Windows 8
  • Open up the charms bar
  • Click Settings
  • Hold Shift before pressing the power icon
  • While still holding shift, click the power icon
  • Keep holding shift, and click restart
  • You may release shift
After restarting Windows 8
  • Once the PC boots, you'll see a screen that says "Choose an Option"
  • Click "Troubleshoot"
  • Click "Advanced Options"
  • Click "Windows Startup Settings"
  • The computer will restart
  • When the computer turns back on, you'll have the option to boot into safe mode.

Hi,

First off, we need to know what the blue screen error says. You need to get the first set of "technical info" that looks like e.g. 0x000007e. To get this, Tap f8 when booting your computer and on the boot options menu, choose "disable automatic restart on system failure" this should allow the blue screen to stay on your screen and you should be able to copy the information we need to troubleshoot your bluescreen error.

Post your details here so we can continue.

thanks for using Fixya.

Looks most likely that your Moms' hard disk has some bad sector on the boot drive. The best you can do is to reinstall the laptop. You may have to hand over the laptop to someone who is good with computer and has the OS disk to this this for you.

Shut your computer all the way down. As soon as you turn it on, start hitting F8 about 3-4 times, that will take you to an advanced options menu. Select "Last known good configuration" and that should work

You have a rootkit virus, the only answer is reformat the drive and start fresh, sorry.
After a fresh install is done immediately install service(can be downloaded free from microsoft.com) pack 3, because sp2 is vulnerable to a host of trouble.

Blue screen when trying to boot windows


you have the "blue screen of death" i had this same problem and the easiest way to fix it is to take the hard drive out and put it into another computer back up all files you want to keep on it have a boot disk for the right windows operating system on it use the boot disk with it once it is back in the right computer and then put all the files you saved back on it. the blue screen of death occurs when there is a registry error on your computer. if the blue screen of death appears again then you need a new computer.

What is the model number of the board?

If you were able to boot, then you defiantly got the CPU in properly. Sounds like you just need some tweaking in the bios.
