Re: PCChips M848A Motherboard
Ok well the simplest answer is to get ahold of an old pci (not pcie) video card and plug her in. If this doesn't get you video I don't know what will. If you're not getting vid with the pcie slot it could be disabled (idiotic I know) in your bios.

The PC Chips MB PCCHIPS SiS746FX M848A V5.0 462 motherboard does not have onboard video, correct? So if you can obtain the make and model of your video card, you can then find the Windows XP drivers online for download. Then you would be able to provide said drivers when the "system asks you to update SiS 2615 Display Adapter driver"
*Another quick fix would be to use a different VGA card, if you have one available?
*Now, I have never been prompted to update display driver before or during a windows installation or update. So that step I would require a little more detail on. I have only been prompted for mass storage drivers (as seen in screenshot).

Now the layout of the pins is the long row (5) pins are the odd number pins 9 being the odd one and 1 is the other end of the row. 2 through 8 start at the pin accross from 1 : : : : . I hope this helps you.
OK, this is for all the idiots who reply and offer NOTHING. You need more info, model and ver? HE ALREADY GAVE ALL THAT INFO.

Is the cmos clear jumper in the wrong position? if it is it will drain the battery and mess up the clock, You may have to flash the eeprom with a newer version BIOS obtainable from the manufacturer, check their website on this to see if it is a known issue ( I have seen this on multiple other manufacturers main boards). If this isnt it it is possible you have a bad clock chip
