Windows XP Locks Up After Fresh Format


It seems the heat generated by an antivirus system scan forced a shutdown. however, i have another CPU i could poss test with a new Duron 1300 so maybe as a last resort but only thing i havent chnaged is PS and CPU. You might also try doing some basic maintenance. Still nothing. his comment is here

It was a fairly easy process, following instructions on one of ASUS's forums: http://vip.asus.com/forum/view.aspx...id=1&model=P5B Deluxe/WiFi-AP&page=1&count=70 Preparation: 1. let the XP Install CD do it all for you ... i just thought it was odd that it was working perfectly fine with the new video card for a period of 2 weeks, then all of a sudden start acting up. Also, I tend to notice freezing whenever I am pretty active on the computer.

How do u run the diagnostics without an OS on the system? With the "Gates OS" I could have breakfast and a second cup of coffee before it finished booting. In my experience with IDE hard drives, there are many pin positions, and you normally have to have at least one pin in each drive.

I have come up with nothing. First thing I did is removed all his partitions and created an NTFS partition and formatted it in WinXP Setup.

Maybe that is not a problem as you mentioned doing a clean install. Most times it would run the hard drive like crazy, and then eventually go to a black screen and do a memory dump. catilley1092 Win 7/Linux Mint Lover VIP Member Joined: Nov 13, 2009 Messages: 3,507 Likes Received: 569 Location: North Carolina, USA I agree with Nibiru2012 on that. I have enabled/disabled just about everything in the bios, Ive loaded failsafe defaults, and optimized defaults..Ive done everything I can think of.

  • It sat at 2% for a day, and I restarted and tried again, 4% and sat for another day, but gave me an error which I now forgot (should've wrote that

  • Of course its a real pain to load all the data again, but do you think it would solve the problem?
  • I have never known a cpu to act this way...in all the ones I have had crap out on me, the system just wounldnt boot.

Power supplies routinely go flakey when they age, way before they fully fail (no power at all or machine won't boot). Make sure they are seated fully.

Your pc would really speed up with a SSD. http://swapshaker.com/windows-xp/xp-fresh-install.html While browsing firefox (after 2-3 minutes), windows XP just locks up. I just don't want to go through another 18 hour debacle. Used the disc on an MSI board and no problems at all.

The SSD is certainly not for your documents, videos, music, photos and game installation files, but could eventually be a convenient place for heavily used files with complex structure and many Its an eMachine W2260, AMD Athlon XP 2200 running at 1.8Mhz, 256 MB DDR, 60GB Western Digital WD600 hard drive, and onboard video/sound/nic, etc. There are no other components installed on this machine besides those listed above to conflict. weblink I suggest as you did not mention how much cache and speed your HD has.

delete and reset the partition again and let XP do the formatting. the problem was from HDD , it was damaged However thank you for your care+ excuses for my bad English Can't find your answer ? Do you think my computer is somehow incompatible with 64-bit? I have already uninstalled my main browser firefox, and I am now using Internet Explorer and the problem has not changed.

And below it reads, "Setup will complete in approximately 27 minutes". That hardware you listed is fully 64bit capable. The SSD drives of todat have sata interfaces. check over here Any other symptoms or you just find it lagging ?

you don't say how confident you are with systems.I am sure you can get some recommendations and ratings here for the many "tweak" tools available. I would really appreciate some help. Minor problems for me to get everything I wanted into the system, such as contacts, bookmarks & Seamonkey. any recommendations on places to purchase a power supply?
