Question about Gigabyte GA-7ZXE Motherboard
Hello! I'm having a strange problem lately. When I boot my PC, during loading Windows XP it restarts the first few times until it finally gets into Windows. Then the system is really unstable! I mean it would either stop responding, me not being able to even move the mouse pointer and therefore I am being forced to push the reset button on my case, or it would just automatically restart because of a critical stop error. Most often it is MACHINE_CHECK_EXCEPTION, but sometimes there are other signs also. I tried replacing all of my RAM chips so as to check if the problem is faulty RAM, but there was no result.The system was still unstable.I tried removing all components (LAN Cards, CD ROM-s, etc.) and left my system with only the video card plugged in my motherboard (no peripherial PCI devices) and it still did the problem. It also did it when I changed to an older Windows version (I tried ME, 2000, 98). All of them did the same thing - restarted a few times until they finally logged into Windows and then stayed unstable. I am having the feeling that the longer the system goes, the more stable it gets. But after I leave it Power-off for a while and start it again - Windows again needs to restart a few times in order to boot. My configuration is: Motherboard : Gigabyte 7ZXE CPU : AMD Duron 900Mhz Sound Card : AC97 Chip on the Motherboard Video Card : AGP GeForce 2 MX400 64MB, TV Out RAM : 64+128+256 = 448MB 2xLAN Cards Realtek TV Tuner FlyVideo 98 HP CD-ROM/R/RW I have absolutely no idea what the cause might be. So please help! I would appreciate it guys...Thank you very much in advance!

If the crashes are becoming more often it is probably a processor overheating problem or it's on its way out. Leave the side of the computer off when its got going and see if it lasts any longer before crashing. To give you more of a clue as to what is crashing the pc go to My computer>properties>advanced tab>Startup & Recovery Settings>automatically restart; and untick the box. This will bring up a blue screen next time it crashes to give you a clue to the problem. PLease rate solution.

Restart your computer during the boot process you will see on the screen to press a certain key to enter setup usually the delete or F2 key
Press and hold that key during the boot up process to enter BIOS then using the arrow keys scroll down to advanced bios features press enter change your first boot device to cd press escape then press f10 to save to cmos to restart
note this will erase you operating system you will have to have an operating system disk to load it onto you hard drive or create a partition to load another operating system
note after you have loaded the operating system you should go back and change the first boot device to failsafe or optimised defaults
after windows has loaded
your computer will automatically restart it might restart 2 times one to finish the installation
the next will be because the operating system is loaded and will boot from your cd
if your installation disk is only a service pack 1 or 2 you might need to create an xp sp3 disk
if you have a copy of windows service pack there is a program that allows you add service pack 3 to it so you have a copy of xp sp3
