Question about Computers & Internet

2 Answers


Hi - I bought this MB during the last week, (brand new) from my supplier in South Africa. I installed the MB after the CPU, (P4 2.6Ghz) and memory (2 X 1Gb Esquire Brand) was fitted. It also has a 256 MB graphics card installed. Problems:
I installed the graphics card in the first PCIX slot - the machine only beeps, and after I removed it and installed it into the second PCIX slot the machine came on.
I started the software installation (XP Prof). After the initial copy of the software, it restarts, and it seems to starts the installation - after a minute or two it gives a screen of death. I changed everything now, and reseated eveything. I even disabled the IDE drives, and is now only working with a SATA drive.
Can you perhaps give an indication of where or what I can still check what might be causing this?

Hello kabousven,

Could you be more specific with the screen of death? Can you read any specific errors?

Also will you list all of the other hardware installed? Screen of death during XP installation can mean that certain drivers are required,but not there.

Also, what is the model and make of your motherboard, and when you plug in your video card to the other slot, how many beeps do you hear? 2,3, fast or slow?
