    Solved: New Motherboard and XP Not Getting Along

    OK, after a repartition and a "clean" install for the 3rd time, the charm kicked in. Windows XP is loading and I managed to upgrade all the drivers and things seem about as fine as frogs hair... I am now waiting for the guy who uses that puter to come home so we may start reinstalling all the...

    Solved: New Motherboard and XP Not Getting Along

    Mac, that is the funny thing about this whole shebang, he started out in the very beginning by having a local tech putting in another mobo, and as the original was a unit that had the 20pin power supply without the 4 pin add on and the 1st replacement board was a ATX 24 pin board, the technician...

    Solved: New Motherboard and XP Not Getting Along

    After going back and doing a restart and a write over, I finally got it to boot from windows and this time got a message that told me that something was wrong with memory. I ran a mem diagnostic and it failed 6 out of 6 tests and it was always the same group of bits that failed no matter what...

    Solved: New Motherboard and XP Not Getting Along

    Here it is 15:05 Sunday afternoon, I dropped in a new virgin 320gig SATA Drive (Maxtor) and did a CD Boot install, formatted the drive correctly and only using one partition. I am seeing the loading going quite slowly tho, and spent the entire morning until about 13:00 managing to get in about...

    Solved: New Motherboard and XP Not Getting Along

    Here are the ones I have copied, and I probably will have more tomorrow morning when I get back here unless Mac's ideas work. No matter what happens, I will be posting either the Fix and how it went or the problems and how they have grown <grin>. Gabe's Machine IDE Maxtor STM 3802110A...

    Solved: New Motherboard and XP Not Getting Along

    Mac, the CD I have for XP is a full XP Home edition with Service Pack 2 I am not understanding this statement "You have to install the motherboard first and then with the hard drive in and the XP installation CD follow the link." There is no way to install the motherboard to my knowledge...

    Solved: New Motherboard and XP Not Getting Along

    Thanks Mac, I am reading the link, and have saved it to take with me where the puter is at present. I inserted a 320gig Sata drive that never had XP ever installed, but was used as a data storage device and I have the same resulting problems that I had with the original 80gig hard drive that...

    Solved: New Motherboard and XP Not Getting Along

    "Have you tried safe mode? From there you can do a System Restore, and maybe get it booting again." I can't get that far without Bsod'ing.. I am thinking about reformatting a clean disk that hasn't had XP installed and seeing if that will boot ok... I am pulling at straws now

    Solved: New Motherboard and XP Not Getting Along

    A good friend just had a motherboard failure, and purchased a new (?) one. As we do not live at the end of the world, just over that end by a few hundred kilometers, a new motherboard here can rest in storage for months on end before it is sold to the public. The motherboard is a Biostar...

    Should I Try Ubuntu?

    Personally, I would put it around the invention and use of multivibrators. That was the start of the electronics digital age I believe... I could be wrong, but back in the early 50's we were using multivibrators for timeing and pulse length for radars, sonars etc then we started voice...
