    Hi Mike,

    Well it's been a long road, i tried all that you said to do and it looked good for a while, but the same thing happenned, so i had another processor in another computer, which i with the one in the problem computer to see what would happen. astonishing enough the computer booted up the way it should. so i put the dodgy processor into the other computer which also is running fine, so i'm not sure what is going on with it all but i'm leaving go while it's working.



    THANKS VERY MUCH FOR TIME AND EFFORT!

Hi wayne, I'm thinking you're windows is slowly going. This can happen from installing software, than uninstalling too many times. Windows registry can get messed up & windows startup files can get corrupted. (Video files are part of windows boot process). There is also that one security patch from windows that seems to mess up you're Internet Explorer. I doubt you're video card is bad either. I think you're windows operating system has been slowly going. I read all your posts & feel sure about this. Do you have more than one drive in you're system? If it were me I would do a fresh install of windows with a disk format.
If you have a second drive back up these important folders to you're second drive or to a CD/DVD disk.
C:Documents and Settings User nameApplication DataMicrosoftAddress Book
C:Documents and Settings User nameDesktop
C:Documents and Settings User nameFavorites
C:Documents and Settings User nameLocal SettingsIdentities
C:Documents and Settings User nameMy Documents
Data from any programs you may have installed.

Put you're AGP card back in & set the bios back to [AGP VGA Card]. Than go to page 2.4.1 & set, Onboard VGA to [Disabled].
Load you're windows CD into you're CD-ROM drive & save the bios & exit. The PC will auto restart the PC. As the system starts, press the F8 key every two seconds. This will bring up windows, Please select boot device: Using you're arrow keys high light the CD-ROM with windows in it. Press enter. The Win CD should begin. Format the drive & install windows. When windows finishes turn on windows firewall. (You may have to re-register with Microsoft). There should be a windows screen that allows you to register by phone. Tell MS that you installed a new drive & they'll give you a new key.
Load the Asus CD in & install all you're drivers for the board. Next load you're antivirus software & make sure it's up to date. Don't have valid antivirus software? Download AGV for free, click here to download: http://free.avg.com/ww.download?prd=afe
Run windows update service. If you come across .Net framework do not install more than 1 at a time & restart the PC in-between each. Do not install internet explorer 7 or above. Do not install windows media player 11. Wait until you're system is up & running 100%. Same for windows SP3. Do not install, yet!
When finished go to Asus web site & download & install any newer driver software. ASUS P4S800-MX main site:
http://support.asus.com/download/download.aspx?modelname=P4S800-MX&SLanguage=en-us
Re-install you're programs, printer software, games ect. Than copy the folders you backed up over you're new windows.
Again, wait a few days before downloading & installing the windows updates you did not install. Suggest installing 1 at a time & wait a few days before installing the next.

Good luck Wayne!

Mike

Graphics card makes system reboot


Please shut down you're PC. Unplug the power cord from the PC. Remove the video card you have installed.
Once removed plug the power cord back in & start the PC. Press the delete key on the keyboard every 2 seconds untill the bios main menu loads. How to move around in the bios is shown at the bottom of each menu screen.
The Asus P4S800-MX motherboard has an onboard video card built into the motherboard. Before you can add a video card you must make a change in the bios. Go to Advanced menu.
Page 2-21 in you're manual. Change primary VGA bios to [AGP VGA Card].
Save & exit the bios. The PC will begin to restart. Press & hold the power button on you're PC until the PC shuts off. Unplug the power cord again, open the case & firmly & evenly insert you're AGP graphics card. Connect any extra power to the graphics card if required. Re-check all connections & cables before closing the case. Turn on the PC. Wait for windows to finish loading before installing you're video card software.
That's it. You're card should now function. Good idea to update windows!

Good Luck!
Mike
