Question about Intel Motherboard

2 Answers

Well I'm one of you guys so you can bet I was confused, this is a computer problem installing XP SP3 on my PC.

Ok so Microcrap hasn't been able to help and its an odd problem.
So the basics first, I have a pc I built from scratch that I originally had Server 2003 installed on. Stats:

300 Watt power supply
Three Hard Drives
IDE Legacy:6gb-os drive
SATA: 120gb-program drive
250gb-storage drive

2gigs of ram PC400 DDR2 
Motherboard: MSI 915G Neo 2
Video: Onboard Intel 915G chip
PCIE 16X slot ATI Radeon Saphire 2800 pro HD 256mb onboard ram
DVD Drive LG dual Layer 16x
Intel Dual Core Extreme 2.8 ghz

Ok so this computer has run fine, however recently I switched cases and decided to swap over to XP SP3 with a clean install on the OS drive.

I set it up tested the computer, it starts up, it posts, I can get to cmos/bios menu, even get the drives to load. Its exactly as it was in the old case. I put in the XP SP3 disc, it loads, right before it starts windows, the entire computer restarts. 

Any suggestions?

    sorry already did that. The XP disk loads all of the information and gets to the point when it says "Loading Windows NT Installation" then the comp restarts. It doesn't get to the point where the disk can format and even start the installation process.

    I've resolved the issue of installation. However now I have an odd blue screen of death when ever I try to restart.

    Lol I've fixed it, it was a corrupted disc.

No booting Win Xp sp3


Your laptop is trying to find a bootfile on the network and not finding one! ~This either means it's not seeing your hard drive, your hard drive hasn't got a bootfile on it, or your bios settings for booting have somehow got messed up.

Computer not working after service pack 3 download


Depending on the setup of your computer, sp3 only worked well with a hand full of computers. Your best bet would be to uninstall service pack 3, and then buy the Windows 7 OS. To uninstall, go into your start menu->Control panel->add/remove programs-> and then search for updates installed. Scroll down until you find the Service Pack 3 update and click remove.

CAUSE
Windows XP SP3 introduces a new .dll file that is named Wlanapi.dll. This file is installed in the %WINDIR%\System32 folder. Certain device driver installations for some third-party wireless network adapters also install a Wlanapi.dll file in the %WINDIR%\System32 folder. If such a file is installed in this folder before you install Windows XP SP3, the Wlanapi.dll file that is associated with the network adapter is replaced by the file from the Windows XP SP3 installation.

RESOLUTION
To resolve this issue, check the Web site of the wireless network adapter's manufacturer for the latest device drivers that are available for a Windows XP SP3-based system. Then, download and install the latest device drivers for the wireless network adapter. Source(s): http://support.microsoft.com/kb/950720

On March 6, 2008 Microsoft released Service Pack 3 (SP3) for Windows XP. Service Pack 3 contains all of the important Windows updates from previous service packs as well as additional updates that were released after Service Pack 2. To install Windows XP Service Pack 3 from the Internet on a home desktop computer use the Windows Update feature. CAUTION: If you have an HP Pavilion, HP Media Center or Compaq Presario desktop computer that has an AMD processor, your PC might encounter a startup problem after installing SP3 (or SP3 will not download from Windows Update). Before attempting to install SP3, install sp37394 - Microsoft Windows XP SP3 Upgrade Utility for systems with AMD processors . For more information, the following support articles from the Microsoft Web site can help: 322389 - How to obtain the latest Windows XP service pack (in English) 936929 - Release notes for Windows XP Service Pack 3 (in English) NOTE: One or more of the links above will take you outside the Hewlett-Packard Web site.

Toshiba Laptop A55-S306 shuts down with error messages


It sounds to me like a virus. Boot up from a recover cd or windows cd and reinstall freashly.

If you don't have a recovery cd, contact Toshiba for one. They go around for $40 to $50. If you can't get one, buy Windows Vista and boot up from that and reinstall.
