I am currently running an XP professional service pack 2 and I just installed a Rockey Motherboard and tried to install the drivers to operate the board. When I try to boot it up it goes to an OS Menu and tries to boot normally, no luck black screen. I try to boot again under safe mode and it stalls when it hits agp440.sys. Tried to reinstall XP, tried to install drivers but no luck. Can't get to a dos prompt, can't get to a recovery council. Nothing!!! Help
I would pull out my hair but I'm already bald!!!

If I have problems installing Windows...the first thing I check out is the hard drive.

If the foundation of a system has problems, it seems likely that all that follows will be problematical.

Go to the website of the hard drive manufacturer...download the hard drive diagnostic provided...run the long/extended test of the hard drive.

How can I do that? The computer is not on the internet and I can't get to point where I can download drivers. It stalls at agp440.sys

You can download files...from any other system...then burn the .iso file to CD.

Enter the BIOS...change to boot order so that the system boots from the optical drive...run the diagnostic.

Which diagnostic did you download? Who is the manufacturer of your hard drive?

<<Go to the website of the hard drive manufacturer...>>

Did you find...Seatools for Windows...at the Western Digital website ?

http://support.wdc.com/product/download.asp?groupid=605&sid=57&lang=en

Please download the Data Lifeguard Diagnostic for DOS (CD)...select the .iso file...and burn the .iso file to CD, using the program specified in following instructions.

Burn ISO Using Imgburn - http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/topic444375.html

Result will be bootable CD. Put CD in optical drive. Reboot.

Enter your BIOS, change boot option so that optical drive is first option...save changed settings by hitting F10. F10 will result in reboot.

The diagnostic will begin.

Good...the long/extended test is more reliable, IMO.

<<Tried to reinstall XP.>>

What is the source media you are attempting to use? If it's anything other than a MS Genuine XP CD...and you changed the motherboard from that which is reflected on any clone, recovery CD, or illegal download...you're probably not going to be usccessful, since the drivers from the old motherboard/components...will not be the same as those of the new motherboard. "Install disks" provided by an OEM as part of the support for a given system...are not the equivalent of MS Genuine XP CDs when it comes to installing Windows XP.

If you are trying to use the same XP install...with a different motherboard...you can expect problems. The links following are provided as the thoughts of others on such projects.

<<I install teh authentic XP disc it stalls>>

I have no answer for that...most errors involving agp440.sys seem to occur after Windows is installed, not during an install effort.

Google List, agp440.sys Errors

What about the processor, is there a way to install that wrong?? would that possibly stall at the agp440.sys?? Of course the diagnostic ran through the entire program.
