Hello everyone
I am having trouble getting my computer to pickup the c drive
I formatted my computer using a windows xp cd since the recovery
from the computer would not work. And now it just will not pickup it just restarts and shutsdown. Please help me.

A:Hp Pavilion a1410n

Assuming you have an actual Windows XP CD and not a recovery/restore CD:

You boot from the CD.

You delete all the partitions.

You create a new C partition.

You format the new C partition with the NTFS file system.

You install Windows XP.

(The Windows XP CD does all the work.)

My desktop pc is 10 years old and has been running on Win 8.1. It was working fine Wed., but the "power on" button wouldn't work Thur. a.m. Do desktop computers have a battery of some kind? Thanks 

A:HP Pavilion a1410n will not power on. Has a small, blinking,...

Greetings, The blinking green light on the back input/output panel where the power supply is located usually indicates a power supply problem. Kudos to you for the longevity of your PC. Try these troubleshooting steps found here to verify the problem. It would not hurt to replace the motherboard battery. Check the motherboard diagram at lower right corner by scrolling down the linked HP document above (battery). You need a CR2032 battery. The battery is located near the SATA ports.  Please note, HP flips the motherboard 180 degrees . Check top left in the tower for the battery location. Jay

A:will a HP Pavilion 15-n034sa motherboard fit into a HP Pavilion 15-n083sa ?

Actually that's a hard question, generally its not possible to install another motherboard, sometimes it is. In this case one is an AMD platform and the other is an Intel platform, there could be tons of differences in mounting holes, physical design, clearance, connectors, heat dissipation requirements, cooling systems, etc. Laptops are not like desktops that use more standardized designs.

My HP Pavilion a1410n won't start. When the power button is pressed, the HDD spins up and there's an intermittent beeping, but that is all.

A:HP a1410n won't start

The beeping (without hearing it myself) sounds to me like there's a memory issue. I would recommend running a memory test utility such as one found here: If you get an error after starting a test, pull one of the dimms and test again to help eliminate the bad one(s). Note: MajorGeeks has several free memory testing utilities - I just picked one of them. Best of luck to you!

A:hp pavilion 11 ethernet port fried.. solution..?

What is the complete product name or product number of your notebook? If your notebook has usb ports available then the solution would be to purchase a usb to ethernet adapter. They do work quite well.  Otherwise you will need to have the systemboard in the notebook replaced.    You can even purchase one at Walmart if you happen to live near one.

I bought and installed two 1 gig ram cards on my HP a1410n desktop. The ram that came with the pc is a total of 1 gig (2 half gig cards). The pc recognizes any memory I put in the first 2 slots (whether it's the half gig or 1 gig) but will not recognize anything I put in the 3rd or 4th slots. I'm putting the 2 half gig cards together and the two 1 gig cards together. Am I doing something wrong? When I check the BIOS, it says the 3rd and 4th slots are empty, even though I have memory cards in them.

A:HP a1410n doesn't recognize last 2 ram slots

Here's an update: As I mentioned before, when I put 1/2 gig in each of the 1st 2 slots, the pc recognizes both of them. When I put 1 gig in each of the 1st 2 slots, the pc recognizes them as well. Here's the kicker... I put 1 gig in each of the 1st 2 slots and 1/2 gig in each of the last 2 (3rd & 4th) slots. Now the pc is recognizing 3 of them, but not what logic would dictate. Here's what's in BIOS:

Installed memory 2048MB/PC3200
Memory Bank 1 512MB/DDR SDRAM
Memory Bank 2 1024MB/DDR SDRAM
Memory Bank 3 Not Installed
Memory Bank 4 512MB/DDR SDRAM

What doesn't make sense is memory bank 1 (if that's the first slot) has 1 gig of memory in it, not 1/2 gig as reported in BIOS. I double checked and even removed and reinstalled all the memory and got the same results. HELP!!

A:Solution needed - Motherboard drive port is malfunctioning

OK, first you need to understand that the 845 chipset [which your board uses] was released in 2002. That makes the mb at the very least 10yrs old. Nothing lasts forever and I think you have received very good service from these parts.

While it is possible to get it to work using an add-in controller card, doing so is NOT cost effective and you would still have a 10yr old system.

The choices for an ata type pci card are very limited due to the age of this type of hardware. Here is an example of what you could use to fix the problem; again I do not recommend putting any money into this old of a system.

Once computer hardware is 3yrs old or more, it makes no sense to spend money on repairing said hardware. It is cheaper to replace with more modern hardware.

From the startup screen, it only display HP logo, single beep, wait a while ....single beep again.....wait a while .....single display on the screen already.   May I know the new display incompatible in this PC? In what way, I can test it?   I'll appreciate for your kindly reply.  Regards,

A:Can't install new Asus GT730 2GB on Pavilion HPE h8-1090d

Tflai, welcome to the forum. The GT 730 requires UEFI in the motherboard instead of a standard BIOS.  HP didn't begin using UEFI until mid-October, 2012.  There is no way to add UEFI to the motherboard.  The last series of video cards that didn't require UEFI were the GT 640's.  I suggest contacting the manufacturer's Tech Support for help in choosing the best card for your computer. Please click the Thumbs up + button if I have helped you and click Accept as Solution if your problem is solved.

A:asus motherboard

Have you chosen the computer case you are going to use yet?

For a home media PC, the one defining factor is available "space". (meaning how large of a computer case are you going to use?)

A smaller case may limit you a Micro ATX or smaller MB, low-profile video/audio card or integrated video/audio, low profile CPU heatsink/fan, etc. A smaller case will also mean a lower power PSU which may also limit your choice of other parts.

It's all a matter of opinion, there is no "better" motherboard. One company's board has several great features and other less great features, missing features etc that other companys board might make up for but yet have it's own flaws also.

You just have to figure out which board has the features that you need and can take advantage of for, also considering the price, compatibility, etc.

Hi, I happened to have an old motherboard lying around, so I decided to make a computer out of it. The problem that arose was that I attached a 12v molex connector to two wires with another connector which leads to these pins that usually you would attach the case power and HDD Light and Power Light. When I did this I booted up and the board would not start. I know I did something wrong, that I fed it 12v, and possibly might have fired it. Any clue to how I could get it running again???

A:ASUS motherboard help

It could be a motherboard problem. If it has told you that it failed both a VGA test and a RAM test, you can assume that it is not those components at fault. Do you have another motherboard to test in it?

You might also try testing the power supply, but I doubt that is the culprit.

Can anyone tell me whether the ASUS motherboard P4GL-MX based on Intel 845 GL chipset support Intel Celeron 1.7 GHz?

The company's web-page
talks only about it supporting the Intel Pentium 4 with 256/512 KB L2 cache so i wondered whether it would support a Celeron with 128 KB L2 cache.

A:asus motherboard troubleshoot

Hello and welcome,
10GB hard drive is a little small for XP. I would go with a 40GB minimum. You can go to the Asus Support website and download the motherboard utilities after you install XP. It is possible that you might need to update the motherboards bios before you can install XP. You need to make sure that the motherboards bios are set to Failsafe Defaults and take out any network, sound or USB cards before you start installing XP. After the XP install completes, you can reinstall everything

As far as I am aware there are only two possible solutions to your problem.

1 Ask the manufacturer of your mobo if they would be willing to supply you with a new bios chip.

2 Get a new mobo.

I don't know exactly what settings you are referring to, but ASUS has one thing that is different than all other brands. If you need to get into Safe Mode. Most brands are F8, but with ASUS you need to boot and hit F5 and it brings you to a menu and then you hit F8 which goes to Safe Mode. You need to remember that because it is very hard to find on Google or other Search Engines.

Solid base: Yes. That is a very nice motherboard.

Trouble with assembly: No. Everything you've chosen so far is 100% compatible.

Dual-core better: Not necessarily. There aren't many applications that take advantage of all 4 cores, so if you can find a better price on a dual-core, you might want to consider it. Otherwise the quad-core is a good choice.

Powerbox: The item you're referring to is called a power supply, or PSU for short. The 'rails' refer to the amount of power capable of being distributed at each voltage type used by the computer.

Here's a good example of a nice PSU at a respectable price that is more than powerful enough for most needs:

Recently I upgraded to an ASUS A7V MB with an Athlon 850 chip. I selected "Jumper free" settings, and recently on bootup I have been getting a message sending me to the BIOS saying that my CPU Frequency settings are wrong. It has been set to "USer Define," CPU frequency 100 (It gives the option of setting it as high as 133, but I leave it at 100), and DRAM Freqency 133 (I have 256 MB of PC133).
The motherboard tech people only (wearily) say that this board "often does that." But it does it about every 3d or 4th boot.
I don't understand the multipliers, etc. Should the settings be changed? (I would have to change a jumper to "Jumper mode" to make any further changes.)

A:16 GBs of RAM not working on ASUS motherboard

Hello Randomrocket. Welcome to the forum.

I assume you have already checked to be sure all RAM you are trying to use is the same specs as the current RAM, most importantly the voltage spec, but also unbuffered, and the timings should be the same or very close.

That said, the first thing you need to determine is whether it is a bad stick of RAM or a bad RAM socket or a power problem.

The first thing to do is remove the old working RAM and add one stick of new RAM into the first blue slot (A1) and test. Test each new stick in A1.

If that works then install the 2 new sticks in the same locations as the old sticks (the 2 blue slots - A1&B1) and test.

Then, with the two new sticks still in A1 & B1, add one stick of the old RAM into the third slot (black - A2) and test. Then the second old stick in the last slot (black - B2).

Report back what you find.

I put together a new system with an Asus Z87-c Core i5 processor and new DDR3 memory. I used the hard drives and DVD drive from an old system (motherboard had died on that computer). The C drive has XP installed and was working fine in that old system.
As soon as xp starts to load I get a bsod with the following:
Stop : 0x0000007e ( 0xc0000005, 0xf75fe0bf , 0xf789e208 , 0xf789df08 )
pci.sys - address F75FE0BF base at F75F7000, Datestamp 3b7d855c

I get the same result if I try to reinstall XP from the CD

Other forums seem to say this must be a hardware problem, BUT I can load and run a version of linux perfectly ok.

I need Windows to use mapping software I use, I'm thinking I should get Win 7 to replace the old XP, do you think that will load and work ok?


A:XP won't load on new Asus Z87-c motherboard

I can tell you that if you take a hard drive out of one computer with Windows on it and then try to put that into a different computer, it will not work.

I found this thread here:

Based on the error code, it seems that there could be a problem with the RAM. Step number 4 in the answer provides a link to Memtest to download and run on the computer. You should have a built in Memory test that you can access at boot from the advanced boot options screen. You will have to use an f key to get there. The f key differs, so you will have to try them and find out which one it is.

If it is a problem with the RAM, take it out and then put it back in, making sure it is fully seated.

i was thinking of upgrading my gf2 mx400 64mb to a geforce mx4000 128mb, however i dont no how to see if it will work on my motherboard,
(my mother board)
(the graphics card)


A:mx4000 on asus Motherboard?

Your mobo has an AGPx4 slot and will accomodate that new card without any problems.
That card is AGPx8/x4/x2 compatible, so no problems.
Check if there is a jumper on the mobo, or a setting in the BIOS, to switch off the onboard graphics. Some mobos switch it off automatically when you insert an AGP card.
Before you put the card in, uninstall the current graphics drivers and load the most basic, windows-own VGA drivers. Then switch off and do the swap.

Hey everyone,
I need to determine what my motherboard is ASAP. I'll give you everything I know about it, but I've been searching the web and haven't been able to find anything...

ASUS Brand, it came in a HP Pavilion
Pentium 4 (Not sure what slot)
4 DDR RAM Slots
1 PCI-E x16 Slot
3 PCI Slots
Orange/Yellow in colour.
RAM Slots are Blue, Red, Blue, Red

The reason I need to know is I have no idea how to configure my System Panel Connectors, as I am trying to fit the board into a new case.

Thank you in advance for your help,

Quick question... hope somebody can help:

I'm running an Asus P2Bf motherboard in my PC. When I built the machine, I installed a Celeron 400 chip. I'd like to upgrade but I need some advice on what to upgrade to. Asus hints that any compatible PIII chip will work. Any body out there have experience with this board--care to offer an opinion?

Thanks mucho,
Mark Simpson

A:Asus P2bf motherboard

Depends on which board revision you have, I would look at the board and find the revision number and email asus
[email protected]

You will need a bios flash to get the latest supported processors.

Asus state p3 support for coppermine depending on board and bios revision.

According to this link my old Asus P5K-E Wifi Delux board should be compatible:

Windows 8 compatibility for ASUS P5K Deluxe/WiFi-AP AiLifestyle Series ATX - iP35 Motherboard model P5K DELUXE WIFI-AP
However the Asus download site for this board does not list Win 8 as compatible OS - only up to Win 7.

I am thinking of upgrading but don't want to rebuild my PC to do this.

Can someone advise ?

A:Win 8 compatibility with my old Asus motherboard ?

Technically-speaking, 8 or 8.1 will work well for you. If you have any problems whatsoever with the setup, we here at the forums can advise well.

I've troubleshot that motherboard more times that the internet can count. Don't take that as a negative; there is no design flaw or defect.

I just bought an ASUS M2N-E SLI motherboard to go into an ultra gladiator case.When I turn the motherboard over I notice a bracket on the back side.Will this bracket interfier with the mounting and does it matter if it touches the inside of the case where it mounts to because it looks awfully close.the case is an ultra gladiator mid tower atx case
