After changing the motherboard from Intel D101GGC C Rev. 1.02 (which died due to bad caps) to Intel D101GGC Rev. 1.03, XP will not start completely. The XP logo comes up then shuts down. I am using same processor, memory and hard drive. Any Ideas?
Might just be Windows failing to recognize the storage hardware (even though the mobo is the same, they have a rev number for a reason). Either way, a reinstall of XP should clear that right up, but make sure you have a backup of everything important on that drive. If you don't, plug it into another desktop and take the files off it. If you can't do that either, get a ubuntu livecd or something like that and copy the files to a flash drive.
The problem is a program that is on the machine, I was hoping to be able to get this thing running without having to reinstall windows. I tried startin in Safe Mode but it also stops as it is installing a driver, but it shuts down before I can read it. i don't think I couild do anything if I could.
