these guys seem to have figured it out. Looks like the board is picky about what processor you use.

This could mean either processor/board, memory or graphics, there is no info for beeps on your board, try looking for the cmos clear terminals on the motherboard (JP1) and put jumper accross pins 2-3 then back to pins 1-2. Try booting up again. and hopefully only one beep. But if it still occurs then its a process of illimination with other parts and you will need spares to try it unfortunately.

I want to connect a 8x agp card to 4x agp slot. is there any possibility? my m/b is Albatron PM266A Pro


The answer is "maybe".

It depends on a number of factors, the main one being what graphics card you are putting in. Some graphics cards can "clock down" from 8x to 4x and some cannot.

If your graphics card is able to it will say on the box.

It also depends on your power supply. The new 8x graphics cards can take a lot more power than the older 4x and if you don't have a good power supply the system will just not start up.

The best thing you can do, if you already have all the parts, is give it a go. It won't cause any damage, it will either not turn on and not work or turn on and work.

If it doesn't turn on it won't work with the hardware you have and you will have to remove the graphics card but no damage will be caused.

Hi. i am trying to assemble an HP xw4300 workstation. i recently bought from ebay a refurbished motherboard. everything works and the unit started up fine. but at 30% of copying files windows xp sp2,...

Was the hard drive were using new, or used? It sounds to me like it had a virus on it. I've seen that scenario before! Some malware (in particular, TDL4 and variations of it), create hidden partitions that most antivirus products never find! But all the drive has to do to get reinfected is to pass over that area on the hard disk. But if your hard disk was brand new, then I am very likely "barking up the wrong tree," if you know what I mean!

The first thing that you should do is check the manufacturer's Web site for the drivers and everything that you need should be found. ALWAYS check the manufacturer's Web site (using the model #) when in need of drivers, whether software or hardware.

The manufacturer of your PM266A Pro board is Albatron. You should find drivers for that board HERE. I don't know what operating system you're using (Windows 2000, XP, Vista, Linux, etc) but, if you're using Windows XP (with at least Service Pack 1) or Windows 2000 (with at least Service Pack 4) then you WILL NOT NEED TO DOWNLOAD AND INSTALL THE USB DRIVERS.

I inserted a link directly to the page on Albatron's site where these drivers are located. If you click on the word HERE in this paragraph or the one above, it will take you to the page.

This is not a brand new board so, if I were you, I would also take a look at the BIOS updates for this board. Albatron has several updates listed for download. Updating the system BIOS is important because it can prevent you from having pesky little issues with your system and also allows you to add/enable certain features/hardware on the board. It's pretty much just upgrading the board. Compare your version to those versions they have listed in the available updates. The best thing to do would be to download and install the latest BIOS update. Follow this link for BIOS updates.

Everything that you need to know about your board should be on Albatron's Web site. I hope this helps you now and in the future event that you need to find drivers.

Thanks for using Fixya!

AGP 8x not supported

Just a thought, but have you tried going into the bios setup and setting bios to system defaults or safe setting, saving and rebooting?

Laptop wont power on.

Try booting with the battery removed. Other than that, this looks like a serious problem that will require a repair service.
