So heres the issue.
after POST the computer displays a variety of different STOP errors, or auto reboots itself in a continues loop.
At first everything semed to be well and normal, when all the sudden, at the windows XP loading screen (with the bar rolling across) A BSOD appears and says windows needs to shut down immediately to prevent damage to files blah blah... you know the one..... so i restart....
So then i begin the series of try-to fix its. First i tried safe mode..but it hung up on MUP.sys, and auto rebooted
I disconnected all unnecesary hardware and such and tried to boot from last known config..... this time it gave me a STOP 0x0000000A message IRQL_NOT_EQUAL_OR_LESS ,......... I even swapped out various KNOWN good HDD, Memory, and other Hardware
following that ,I tried to boot from the XP disk which at first said corrupt something file, but upon trying again gave me this STOP error *** STOP 0x0000000A (0x0000002c, 0x0000002, 0x0000001, 0x80806FB4)
So i fiddled around a bit more with various components// bios etc etc safe mode boot hangs up NOT on Mup.sys but the following file. GAGP30Kx.SYS This is where i turned to the forums for help.. so here I am
Ive cleared the Coms and checked the jumper settings and all that i know to check. My MAIN QUESTION is, where enlies the problem? in the board? the BIOS? The APIC? im clueless... its NOT the HDD itself so how could it be a registry file error or something? I put the HDD in my running PC and it booted fine.
SPECS OF THE PROBLEM COMP: Its an E-Machines oriented motherboard manufactured by MicroStar (MS-7184 is the FCC id)
200 GB Seagate Barracuda HDD, and the CDrom drivve it came with.
CPU is an AMD athlon 64 3500++ 1000mhz max.
Additional qs....How do i know the memory compatabilities///slots coordination. its the 4 dimm slot that only supports 2 dual channel memory and blah blah so on... It confuses me. Also im not using the orig Moniter , which was a flatscreen and this one now is not.... Does that matter?? i mean vga is vga right?
ANY HELP IS APPRECIATED TIMES A MILLION. Thanks guys
