Windows won't boot with new board

by acurt / August 23, 2006 12:42 AM PDT

ASUS M2N32-SLI Deluxe AM2 motherboard, AMD 64 X2 3800+ CPU / 1 stick of 1 gb Corsair pro 800 ddr2 ram / 500 watt Antec PSU .

I have Windows XP home sp2 that is installed on a IDE drive that was running fine on a older Asus A7V 133 system . I have installed the new components and windows won't boot even in safe mode . The system goes through POST fine with standard 1 beep , I can access BIOS and all components and memory are recognized without problems .
My skill level is a novice at these problems , any input would be helpful . Thanks .

Very proper. Something we all wish would just work.

Windows for many versions and years will cease to boot after we change the motherboard.

Look up XP REPAIR INSTALL and see if that fixes it. Remember to install all those motherboard drivers after you get it booting.

New board not compatible with configured OS

The problem lies in that each system board uses a different chipset and subsequently, different IDE controller and hardware logic. The A7V system board uses one of the VIA KX-133 chipset, but the M2N32-SLI uses a NVIDIA nForce

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
