Question about MSI RX480 Neo2-F Motherboard

1 Answer

Motherboard upgrade Running Windows XP. tried upgrading to MSI RX480 Neo2-F motherboard. Once everything was installed Windows would not start. would get to windows startup then loop back to bootup screen. When I re-installed old motherboard and components everything went back to normal. Is there any special preparation needed for Windows XP before installing new components? On another computer tried the upgrade installion on XP disc and ended up merely re-installing XP

The different hardware components on the new motherboard require different drivers that what are already loaded on your installation of Windows. My guess is something requires a driver that the base Windows driver install will not cover and as a result errors out and restarts. I too have tried this trick on several occasions, sometimes it work and sometimes it doesn?t; however, the key is similar hardware. My guess would be IDE controller, video, chipset or perhaps USB 2.0 is causing your problem. What you can do perhaps is boot into Windows safe mode and try to figure out what is causing the problem. In the long run it may save time and aggravation by just reinstalling Windows ?? Let us know how it turns out.

Instal driver but sound not coming

Hello download the right driver here:

http://www.msi.com/product/mb/865PE-Neo2-PLS--PFS--PFISR.html#/?div=Driver&os=All

Please select your windows and unzip the file when downloaded.
You also need the chipset driver.

Here is only drivers for win xp so if you are running windows 7 or vista you have to buy a soundcard because the driver is not supportet for a new windows system.

The green outlet is for the speakers and see that the volumen isen`t
turned down low or muted.

Good luck

The Multiprocessor System (MPS) table, which stores the resource assignments for the BIOS, is missing an entry for your device and must be updated.
Contact the system vendor to update the BIOS. or you might try restart your computer
during the boot process you will see on the screen to press delete to enter setup
Press and hold delete during the boot up process to enter BIOS you can load failsafe defaults or load optimized defaults ,press escape then press f10 to save to cmos to restart
