Constant Rebooting and System Error Messages

ASROCK MOTHERBOARD: BIOS ver: 1.50
MEMORY: PC2700 @ 256 X 2 (512 MB) I have 2 @ 512 PC2700 and it will make the machine stop.

I have reinstalled Windows XP Home SP-2 several times and the problem is still the same. The PSU is 450 Watts.

This machine will reboot without warning and almost constantly.

Any ideas will be helpful.

Thanks,

Bene

I suspect you could have a heat sink fan not working remove side of case and when you turn computer on check fans heat sink and video card are working
With computer OFF
remove heat sink fan and check that the heat sink is not clogged up with fluff and dirt.
I regularly clean both fan and heat sink every 2 months also check the fan in power unit and blow it out

Got an AsRock P4i65G mobo and bought 2 gig RAM for it. However, I have bought ECC memory by mistake instead of Non-ECC. PC wont boot with the new RAM. Is there any way I can get this to work such as with...


Hi, you can download a manual here:

http://www.asrock.com/mb/overview.asp?model=p4i65g

Your mainboard DOES NOT SUPPORT ECC RAM.
This ram type is ONLY intended for servers
or mainboards that are compatible for that ram type.

This is what your mainboard supports:

Dual Channel DDR memory technology
- 2 x DDR DIMM slots
- Supports DDR400/333/266 non-ECC, un-buffered memory
- Max. capacity of system memory: 2GB

Use only the asrock site when upgrading the bios.
And a bios upgrade does not supports the ecc ram anyway.

Hope this will help you.

Upgrade of WinXP home to SP2 failed on 3 attempts. System just reboots and reboots. Got message from Microsoft that my bios does not match the CPU. MB is P4VXASD. BIOS is AMI 07.00T ver 2.3 4/2/2001


Hi, you give us the M/B and Bios but don't say what the CPU is? What is the complete message you got from WinXP? SP2 often gives that message when you have changed your CPU, or Flashed your BIOS sometimes other hardware changes. SP2 recognises that something has changed since your first install of XP, and that message is usually not an error exactly, but part of a bigger message. That is usually just the part where SP2 says "by the way, as I was fiddling about I noticed that the BIOS and CPU are different to what I expected" Failures after applying a service pack are rarely anything to do ith BIOS or CPU especially if the system was working OK before applying the patch. Have you Flashed your BIOS very recently? like just before apply SP2? Most likely is that a file is corrupt, often NTKRNL, Please give more detail on how you applied the Spack, and all error messages thanks SB

Consider updating your motherboard bios.

Also make sure that your memory is correct for this system:


- Max. capacity of system memory: 2GB DDR or 2GB SDRAM
- DDR x 2, DDR266/200 non-ECC, un-buffered memory
- SDRAM x 2, PC133/100 non-ECC, un-buffered memory

How to increase the shared memory for the internal graphics. i searched everywhere in the bios but i couldn't find a setting. the upper limit is 64 mb and it is currently set to 8 mb. i want to increase...


Your AGP aperture size is 64 MB but your "Onboard VGA Share Memory" may be set only to the maximum available setting in your BIOS. (You may already be at maximum)

1. Highlight "Onboard VGA Share" press <Enter>
2. Change value with [+] or [-]
3. F10 Save and Exit

Not able to complete windows xp setup


First let's try to "flash" the BIOS to correct the erroneous data crashes. Here's the link for the motherboard:

http://www.asrock.com/mb/overview.asp?Model=P4VM8

After flashing go back to the BIOS and setup the appropriate settings, after that reboot and try to load Windows. If this fails then possibly you may have faulty memory modules or they are not seated correctly in the motherboard, try swapping them, hopefully they are the same. I hope this helps.

Graffics accelerator failure


Hi Carpeteddy,
The ASRock K7VT6 motherboard does not have a intergrated graphics card onboard. So your 1.5V, AGP8X / 4X card needs replaced. It wouldn't hurt to uninstall the AGP's driver software, reboot the system & re-install the software. Check the manufactures web site for updated driver software before replacing it.

Here is a link to an XFX 1.5v AGP card:

The good part of XFX is its warranted for life!

Good luck Carpeteddy!
