Have you set the boot sequence in the bios to cdrom first. You are installing from a winxp cd right? Also, when it past the post and starts reading the cd it will ask you to press any key to boot from cd, if you do not press any key in a matter of seconds it will search for another boot device. Since you don't have any other operable boot device, it will not boot up. If you still have problems, please let me know

Can anyone please assist me with my issue? I am currently running the Biostar TA880GB+ AMD chips with the AMD Phenom II X2 555 Kingston HyperX Blu 4GB (2 X2gb) DDR3 SDRAM PC1600 250GB Western Digital Blue...

"F3/F4 functions for core unlocking" what in the world does mean
what is the end goal, not told.
i goggle f3 and this model board
get zero hits.
is this some wild OC overclocking post.>???? not told any goal at all
This NOT BIOS ADMIN PW lock outs.
but what is the problem told all ways to fix it but not what it means.
to overclock the CPU must allow it. (OEM AMD)
and the bios (and BIOSTAR)_
that is a fact and then lots of luck and endless BSOD's
or even a now wrecked CPU.

wild wild guess this> ask BIOSTAR direct for same effect, hacks.

How can i get to command prompt in dos through bios?

Sorry but basically you cant access command propmt through the bios. The command prompt is part of the operating system of the pc, either as DOS (disk operating system) or part of windows.
The BIOS (Basic Input output system) which is on a rom(read only memory) chip on the mother board, and initiates post(power on self test) when the computer starts, without the bios the computer would not boot up at all. To access the command prompt you must have a operating system installed, ie Windows. hope this helps.

Computer turns on but nothing is dispalyed

You say the PC turns on... does this mean that it goes through POST (u hear those beeps etc)? This means that you have power but no apparently no video.

Test for VIDEO in the most basic form
Power up PC and see if u can access the BIOS (F2). If u can access the BIOS then it means your video card works.

If u cannot access the BIOS, it means you have a more severe problem and may have to change the system board to resolve it.

If you are actually getting NO POWER (meaning that there is no post and no indication of power) then it is a different story altogether. U're looking at a new power supply or new system board if it's integrated on the board and cannot be replaced.

Can't boot, stops right after mem test but before access to setup suspect BIOS chip It's in PLCC socket, need replacement for test thanks

does the post give a audio code before the boot stops..? the plcc chip can be purchased from the manufacturer if they are still available. Does the post stop after the mem test or during..? if during, try replacing or refitting the ram sticks. You could even remove the ram sticks and see if the post continues or if you receive a beep code.if you get a beep code, go to manufacturers website for beep code info. Have you tried to reset the bios. most boards can recover from a bios failure, the boards manual will tell you how to do this if the board supports it. If the plcc has failed, replacing the board may be cheaper and free of hassles. Replacing the plcc is a pain as you must get the correct bios installed. Are you getting the video bios details on the screen ? if no, try another video card. If you are using an on board video chip, try a video expansion card, either AGP or PCIE type, whichever the board supports. If the board only has PCI or AGP, replace the board as it will not have the features for modern software and you will probably not be able to replace the plcc.

Can't get past bios post

If you can't even pass the POST your only option is attempt to flash the BIOS. Go to your motherboard manufacturer's website to find updated BIOS and instructions for your particular board.

Graphics card causing system to shut down?

Please go into the BIOS of the system and Set the BIOS as default
  1. Restart your computer.
  2. When the computer first starts, it performs the power-on self test (POST). This test checks that all connected devices are functioning. As part of the POST, the memory is checked. During the memory test, a message will appear that tells you how to access the BIOS. For example, you may see the following message or a similar message that explains how to start the BIOS setup: PRESS DEL TO ENTER SETUPIn this example, you must press the DEL key immediately after the memory test is finished to start the setup process. You may have to press the key several times to make sure that you access the BIOS setup.

    Tip There are other keys that may provide access to the BIOS. They include the following:
    • F1
    • F2
    • F10
    If you are not sure how to access the BIOS setup, see the user manual for your computer's motherboard.
  3. Look for the Set BIOS as Default settings. You can usually use the arrow keys to move through the menus and settings.

Try first resetting the bios to default, sometimes there is no way to have a video adapter working when you get this kind of problems, I will tell you more.

Cannot access the BIOS

welcome to fixya

when you first turn on the computer hold down F2 for a few secounds this should take you to bios screen and as for the new video card i hope you got a new power supply to no lower then 500w power supply with that video card if not bigger

i do not think the ps2 keyboard should be a problem....

hope this helps you out have a good day :)

Freeze after post

intel boards wont start the os after they finish post if the memory or cpu are running at the wrong speed or voltage. SInce most boards nowadays are auto sensing you may have the wrong memory/cpu combo. Also you may have zapped any of the components if they were not installed in an ESD (electro static discharge) environment.
