A7N8X-VM/400 motherboard problems
Posted on 2004-08-26
I've not been able to get this system running properly. At one point the XP OS did get loaded, but kept crashing with the following error "bad_pool_error". Can anybody help? I've been working on this for a week now.
Sense Monday (23Aug 04) I have tried several scenarios.
1) I attached the hard drive to my system K8V SE Deluxe and disconnected the existing drive. I was able to format, load, and run programs without problems. I than brought over the cd-rom from the new build into my system and did the whole process over again without problems.
2) After removing the hardware from my computer and installing them back in the new build I tried to install the OS again. The error that I get now is random files not being copied during the text install (Microsoft knowledge base article 257954) and have followed the steps in article 257954 with no changes to the problem. (I’ve used several different CD-Rom drives with the same problem)
Hardware for new build:
Motherboard - A7N8X-VM/400-UAY (rev 2.02)
Memory – Corsair Platinum Series (cmtwinx512-2700llpt)
Corsair Value select (vs512mb333)
Kingston Value Ram (kvr333/512r)
Processor - AMD xp2500/333
Hard drive - Seagate 40gb ata/100 (st340014a)
Keyboard - Microsoft Internet
Mouse - Microsoft Wheel/Optical
Floppy - Starlogic 3-1/2” 1.44mb
CD-Rom - Liteon 52x Max
Power supply - Powerup (lc-b350atx)
Bios - 1003
I’ve downloaded the newest PDF file of the user guide (e1543_a7n8x-vm_400.pdf). I have noticed that on page 2-17 it shows “boot sector virus protection” and this board does not have this option when I open the bios.
