    Hello People,
    I need help bad. I jsut put together a system. It's my first time. I have a P4 3.2 Ghz on an Intel 800FSB 875 chipset board with a ATI Radeon 9800 128MB card. I have 512 MB RAM and a 80GB SATA harddrive.

    A few things are not going right:
    1) I have a 7-in-1 reader drive for my floppy. It won't power up. I've tried the 4 pin connector from the power supply and the USB adapter they provided. No good.
    2) I keep getting a message saying system temp too hot. I have tried to make as much space as possible in my mid size case. I got the mesage at 102F.
    3) Each time I try to do a shut down, I get a message saying
    Rundll32.exe not responding. End now or Cancel."
    4) Each time I boot up, I get a message saying ATI drivers not loaded. But I am able to run programs fine that need the card and my monitor settings are good.
    Could this have something to do with my BIOS settings? I have no idea what I am supposed to set them to.
    Please Help. I am so lost.
    AJ

    Lots here, let's start with this one
    That's not too hot. If it were Celsius you'd have a fire but that computes to about 39C which is fine so the only thing I can gather is you have a setting for heat warning that is too low.

    PS: Where is this message generating from, an add on app such as MBM? or the board's monitor? A nice average temp for the system would be around 86 to 90 F.

    OK, now this
    I haven't looked at the board's specs but my hunch would be that you have on-board video that is actually running your machine's video.

    Go to Display properties / settings / advanced / Adapter and see if it says something like Intel(R) 82845G instead of ATI. You can also view that and see if there is a conflict in Device Manager under Hardware / Display adapters. Do you know how to get there and check for errors?

    As to your BIOS settings you may have to disable the on-board video but for now let's see what's actually running.

    Don't worry, we all here will find the problems. I prefer to get rid of the possible hardware and driver issues first then deal with the possible software issues.

    PS: Forgot to ask, what exactly is this? I've not heard of;
    Not saying there isn't I've just not seen it.

    Hi there,
    Thanks for helping me out.
    1) This link http://www.yedata.com/products/cardreaders/internal7-in-1.shtml gives a desc of the 7-in-1 reader.

    2)The display properties setting does show ATI Radeon 9800. That's what is confusing me. The card is running fine. But I still keep getting that error.

    3) Each time I try to do a shut down, I get a message saying
    Rundll32.exe not responding. End now or Cancel." What do you think of that one?
