    i haven't used this MB for about 6 months.
    my son is here now and i don't want him on my soooo
    i bought a new hard drive maxtor 40 g diamondmax plus 8
    installed windows xp.the MB posts, i can get in the bio's.
    but it will not load in to windows i get a black screen
    or a black screen with a blinking sensor and i cant do nothing form there
    this same hard drive will boot on my other pc and load in to windows.
    i am running windows 98se on it. i put the disk with windows 98 on
    the ms mb and it will not load in to windows. only to the logo screen and freezes up. also when i try to use the boot disk it get to the point " starting your computer now and freezes.

    yes i did.
    i did this because when i tried to install windows from his pc
    it would hang up and not let me go any futher.
    i tried with a boot disk and it hanges up at "trying to start you computer now please wait"
    so i tried booting form the cd Windows xp home. every thing goes good until it starts to load the windows install exe. then it freezes up :rolleyes:
    so i installed it from my pc. but if i take my HD with windows 98 se and put on his MB it gets to the logo screen and freezes up.... OMG
    i have never run in to this before. :eek:

    the m/b drivers are conflicting
    with the drive in his machine do a repair by booting from the xp cd and choose install
    ignore the first repair option and continue with install
    when windows finds the previous installation then repair

    :confused: i did an fdisk and removed all the partions
    repartioned it. reformated it. for my son's pc.
    set the bio's to boot from the cd with windows xp
    every thing went well until the windows xp disk got to the installing the files for windows exe. then it freezes up.
    so i tried it with a boot disk that freezes to.
    so i reformated it and tried for a windows 98se disk.
    it told me i need to reformat and fdisk
    it said to make the boot disk was in and restart.
    i did the windows 98se disk reformated the HD
    and got to the part were it was install the files needed to install windows 98se and froze!! OMG :(

    i did that before i reformated
    i moved the jumper pin from 1-2 to 2-3
    then back to 1-2
    now when the MB post it tells me that the cp speed has been reset
    to go in to the cmos setup and make sure i use f10 to save
    i did that now every time it reboots it looses allllll the setting!
    this would be laughable if it wasnt making me pazza!
    thank you so much for your help
    i hope you can help fix it dont give up pls i really need him off my pc

    put in a new battery
    and check your disks for finger marks
    recheck the jumper settings on the drive
    use the xp cd to install again,if it freezes again,turn the computer off by the power button and then back on again,it should resume the setup

    sounds as it is assembled incorrectly,one catch if it was reversed was near impossible to latch down but snapped straight into place the right way round
