Hi Mike, just wondering if you would have an idea why my system would just start not booting? it is an asus P4S800-MX BOARD, 3GHZ PROCESSOR, 1 GIG RAM, GFORCE 5500 GRAPHICS CARD, IT has been working fine for me since last i talked to you.then over the weekend it decided that it didn't want to boot, it took several attempts. i finnally took the graphics card out and got it to boot. But know it won't but even with it out. I have to go into "start from last working config" to get it to start. have you any idea's?

    Hi Mike,

    Well it's been a long road, i tried all that you said to do and it looked good for a while, but the same thing happenned, so i had another processor in another computer, which i with the one in the problem computer to see what would happen. astonishing enough the computer booted up the way it should. so i put the dodgy processor into the other computer which also is running fine, so i'm not sure what is going on with it all but i'm leaving go while it's working.



    THANKS VERY MUCH FOR TIME AND EFFORT!

Hi wayne, I'm thinking you're windows is slowly going. This can happen from installing software, than uninstalling too many times. Windows registry can get messed up & windows startup files can get corrupted. (Video files are part of windows boot process). There is also that one security patch from windows that seems to mess up you're Internet Explorer. I doubt you're video card is bad either. I think you're windows operating system has been slowly going. I read all your posts & feel sure about this. Do you have more than one drive in you're system? If it were me I would do a fresh install of windows with a disk format.
If you have a second drive back up these important folders to you're second drive or to a CD/DVD disk.
C:Documents and Settings User nameApplication DataMicrosoftAddress Book
C:Documents and Settings User nameDesktop
C:Documents and Settings User nameFavorites
C:Documents and Settings User nameLocal SettingsIdentities
C:Documents and Settings User nameMy Documents
Data from any programs you may have installed.

Put you're AGP card back in & set the bios back to [AGP VGA Card]. Than go to page 2.4.1 & set, Onboard VGA to [Disabled].
Load you're windows CD into you're CD-ROM drive & save the bios & exit. The PC will auto restart the PC. As the system starts, press the F8 key every two seconds. This will bring up windows, Please select boot device: Using you're arrow keys high light the CD-ROM with windows in it. Press enter. The Win CD should begin. Format the drive & install windows. When windows finishes turn on windows firewall. (You may have to re-register with Microsoft). There should be a windows screen that allows you to register by phone. Tell MS that you installed a new drive & they'll give you a new key.
Load the Asus CD in & install all you're drivers for the board. Next load you're antivirus software & make sure it's up to date. Don't have valid antivirus software? Download AGV for free, click here to download: http://free.avg.com/ww.download?prd=afe
Run windows update service. If you come across .Net framework do not install more than 1 at a time & restart the PC in-between each. Do not install internet explorer 7 or above. Do not install windows media player 11. Wait until you're system is up & running 100%. Same for windows SP3. Do not install, yet!
When finished go to Asus web site & download & install any newer driver software. ASUS P4S800-MX main site:
http://support.asus.com/download/download.aspx?modelname=P4S800-MX&SLanguage=en-us
Re-install you're programs, printer software, games ect. Than copy the folders you backed up over you're new windows.
Again, wait a few days before downloading & installing the windows updates you did not install. Suggest installing 1 at a time & wait a few days before installing the next.

Good luck Wayne!

Mike

What problem is it that you are having?
If you want to upgrade you're CPU here is the Asus link for supported CPU's P4S800-MX motherboard.
http://support.asus.com/cpusupport/cpusupport.aspx?SLanguage=en-us&model=P4S800-MX
To the right of the list is the bios file that must be used to support the CPU.

If you need instruction on how to replace a CPU just let me know.

ASUS P4S800-MX


Hi menorpro,
Asus warrants their boards for three years. The average motherboard Co. warranties go for 1 year. The only other Co. that warrants longer is Foxconn. (Lifetime).
I doubt you will find a working P4S800-MX being I couldn't find P4S8X-MX board, (This board is newer).
First bios rev. 03-18-2005 for the P4S8X-MX MB. Yes you will need to reinstall windows. (It's not that big of a deal). Fact upgrading to a faster chipset means speeding up the over all system. While running the same hardware. So no I do not agree with you're tech. If you list all you're parts being used on the P4S800-MX board I'll see what other boards will support you're devices.
Memory, (Max speed MHz, DDR or SDR, how many DIMMS using).
Hard disk drive, (IDE, Model Mfg, size).
Video if any, CPU information
Here are a couple new boards you might want to consider.
These should support all you're devices.
http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/category/category_slc.asp?CatId=182&name=478-Motherboard
Tiger can warrant the board for 1 year after the Mfg's 1 yr warranty for a price. Or you can go for the 2 yrs additional warranty.
The Biostar P4M80M4 Via Socket 478 MicroATX Motherboard.
Should support all you're devices.

The Biostar P4M900-M4 Motherboard - VIA P4M900, Socket 478 MB is real close to newer standards. DDR2 memory & PCI-Express video & STAT drives.

It's getting harder by the month to find a board to support older devices. Some sites charge more because people do not want to change out their devices. Sooner or later we all have to change. Best we can hope for is the later...

Good Luck menorpro!
Mike

No booting


The problem is Operating systems are co-dependent on hardware.
If the motherboards, processors, ram, video adapters, etc don't match you would not be able to swap hard drives and expect to boot.

You could try pressing F8 on boot and try to access safemode.

If it does boot into safemode immediately it will want to reactivate windows.(because of all the hardware changes.

If it still can't boot, you may want to put the 80 gig in as slave to the 40gig and ghost the 40 gg hard drive over to the 80.

If you don't want to lose your data on the 80 gig then reboot with an xppro cd and reinstall windows in the same partition overlaying the installation on top of existing windows directory.

the new windows will have to be activated but all data will still be there.
