strip the machine down to just a mouse, keyboard, video adapter, floppy drive, one hard drive, one CD drive.

I don't that much about this motherboard but if it uses the VIA Chipset then

VIA Chipset 4in1 driver package

Borrow a friends Dimm if the stripdown fails - sounds like dodgy ram.

None of that worked.
But I have windows 98 system, Pentium 4 1.8 GHz. I also tried to put the RAM module on another slots but it´s no use.

mine_23Author Commented:
Could the problem be from the VIA chipset, because I was warned by a message at the beginning of the Setup, that says Driver is not installed properly though everything works well.

Did you upgrade or flatten the drive first?

¿which drive are you talking about?

mine_23Author Commented:
First, I didn´t install any driver for VIA, but the same problem is still happenning.

what type of graphics care you got, cause you could try use a different one just for the win xp instalation.

midgetkillerCommented:
Try this from a working machine -
visit http://www.simmtester.com/ and grab the DocMemory boot disk maker.

Its a simple utility that found a stick of bad ram even though my PC POST'ed just fine. I was having very odd issues with my PC until I found this - it was recommended by Crucial technical support for an RMA order.

Hi - same problem on Compaq Deskpro EN: Resolution - during setup you can press F6 Update SCSI-drivers - press F7 - a little later in the installation you will be able to choose a)Install on a Intel Pentium PC b)Other (!) - select a) and continue - a normal installation!

I have S3 Graphics ProSavageDDR, as written in the Control Panel. But I had a CD with the motherboard that contains all the drivers for sound, graphic, ... etc.

Can't any of you help me, I really need to install it.

midgetkillerCommented:
Have you:

disconnected all but required devices? (HD, CD, KB, Mouse, video)
moved the single stick of ram to slot 1 (or slot 0 which ever is lowest on your board)?
Tested the ram?

Is this a legit install CD of XP Home or an OEM for another brand of PC?

Do any other OS's install (will it boot with a dos disk)?

mine_23Author Commented:
I did all that friend, but with the same problem. This blue screen tells me about disabling BIOS caching and memory. I don´t know what to do!
I made the disk you told me about for testing RAM, and it passed all the tests.

I have FAT32 File system, Is it the problem?

Guybrush22Commented:
nah its not the problem if you have fat32, did you try like i said and try and install with a different video card in place of your current one

arcascompCommented:
You may want to check the Virus protection in the BIOS - used to give OS install problems if that was enabled.

Might be worth choosing the 'default' settings option in the BIOS and then make sure that virus checking is turned off.

midgetkillerCommented:
What version of bios are you using?

If you're not sure check out this site from your motherboard OEM - http://www.pcchips.com.tw/bios/bios.asp?module_id=2,3

The release notes show all the versions made for your motherboard - download the latest one and install it.

my BIOS version is 1.21.10

Then upgrade your BIOS to the latest version.

020830S.rom is the latest version.

The rom file and bios flasher are available from that website.

It didn't work and displayed:

'System was not new AWARD BIOS Version
please updata ROM BIOS first ...'

midgetkillerCommented:
Then use the AMIBIOS flasher. PCChips didn't standardize on anything... When your motherboard posts, what kind of bios is it? Amibios or Award?

I did that, but my PC couldn't boot normally.

I repeat again, Is the problem from the VIA chipset?
Can't anyone really help!!

midgetkillerCommented:
The Windows XP comes with a very standard Via chipset driver, its not optimized for anything - but it does work for the tasks it needs to do.

This sounds like a motherboard issue, if you're not sure on how to update the bios to the latest version then you should contact pcchips and get assistance.

What if I upgrade to Windows Me or 2000? will that solve the problem?
0
 
mine_23Author Commented:
Or maybe I have to set/remove a jumper on the motherboard, there's a one that is for selecting DRAM Voltage (VCC):
1: 2.5V (DDR)
2: 3V   (SDR)

But I don't know which one I should choose! maybe it causes the problem.
0
 
midgetkillerCommented:
The board is set to use either DDR or SDRAM - you get two slots for each. You can only use one type of ram, so depending on which you have - set it to that.

Don't worry about having the ram in the wrong type of slot - they're keyed differently so you can only have it in the right slot.

Have you tried other operating systems? If your current bios has an issue with XP it'll probably hang on 2k, I'd try Me or 98se first and see how far you get.

mine_23Author Commented:
Isn't there any solution other than upgrading?
0
 
midgetkillerCommented:
Upgrading the bios is as simple as downloading the bios rom image and program for your board and running it off a boot disk.

It takes about 30 seconds. This is something just about every motherboard owner has to deal with - some more than others.

Your PCChips board had lots of issues and bios upgrades to fix them so the first bios revision must have been junk... this is most likely the issue you're running into - some feature XP is using isn't stable on your board with the bios upgrade.

So, what should I do? tell me?

CrazyOneCommented:
Take the macine in to a Computer shop an have them analyze it for you. Yes this will cost some money put if the BIOS needs upgrading they will do it for you. If there is something wrong with the machine they will tell you.

The largest recommendation was to upgrade the BIOS version. PCChip's website had a lot of upgrades for this board. If the user isn't capable or comfortable upgrading the BIOS he'll have to have it done - either by contacting the company or allowing a PC tech do it for him.

He's tested the ram, only using necessary perif's such as KB, Mouse, CD, and a hard drive. This leaves the motherboard's firmware.

If that doesn't work - then the motherboard won't support XP. I would then contact the manuf. again for replacement.
