I've connected it all up, but when I turn my computer on with my original hard drive, it gets to the windows loading screen, then reboots.
I've tried a new drive, and installing a fresh version of XP. It loads some of the files required to start setup, then reboots.
I'm not sure why this is!
Some of my old kit:
Memory: Manufacturer - Team. 2x 512MB DDR 333Mhz
Power Supply: Eagle DR-B350 ATX (it has the old style pin connection - I think there is a 24 pin now? this is 20 pin). Also, there is a 4 pin extra adapter that plugs in somewhere else in the motherboard.
Any help would me much appreciated - I've been at this for 2 nights now!
i suggest a re-install of the OS or check the hdd.
i was under the impression that when a mobo is changed and running win 2000 or higher, (as long as the chipset is different) you need to reinstall the os otherwise u get BSOD and error messages.
1) check hdd using maxtor, or seagate ultitiy disk
2) if hdd check is ok, reinstall os
If you have access to another computer, download and run MemTest86, it needs no operating system (Lunix kernel) boots from floppy or CD and can tell you if you’re having a memory problem (still might be bad power, but you’ll be one step closer).
Also, did you clear the CMOS?
LISTEN TO KRAZYIVAN! Upgrading the compenents like that is equivalent to having a new machine...did you reset the CMOS and clear out all of the old BIOS settings before trying to boot this thing? Flash to the latest BIOS version? Be sure to have at least a 400w psu with a min. of 30a on the 12v rail, also make sure it has a 24 pin main power connector.
It happened to me once after the computer loaded windows, it gave me a 59 second warning that it was going to reboot and it did
it was a virus
i had to download something and it worked after that.
i coundnt connect in 59 seconds and look 4 a virus cleaner i used another hard drive
everything was ok after that
cant remember where i went, i just looked under google about the 60 second reboot virus and read the instructions
hope it helps
Your new MB and XP don't go together.
1st XP only allows to be installed on 1 computer.
2nd The chipset and drivers are not the for the new MB.
You should do a NEW Install of XP, Then driver disk, Then after it finds all hardware and drivers installed XP updates, Software then Antivirus/spyware.
The ECS is a VERRY CHEAP motherboard. They are only a 2or3 layer board. Everybody else uses 4 or 5. Any flexing fails the board. Like putting on the cpu cooling fan or installing cards can fail this board.
