asus motherboard corruption errors
Posted on 2005-05-16
Hi, I have an asus p4s800 with a p4 2.8 ghz cpu, 512 crucial ram, stock video card. Western Digital HD. DVD-ROM 16x. I started to receive error messages when I started up my computer. First is was the system32/config error. I re-installed windows xp /sp2. This worked for a few days, then it would give me different corrupt file errors about sys files. I tried to format and re-install the operating system again. It would not go thru the installation without some file being missing or corrupt. So I swapped out the Ram, and used another HD, and even put in another video card and another CPU -a 1.7 ghz. All with no luck. I looked at the asus web site and it says I can run the utility thats on the asus cd the came with the motherboard to redo the BIOS. I am wondering what is causing this, and will this bIOS fix help to get the motherboard to work again.
I am using an antex case and power supply. I bought a power supply tester at compusa and it tested good. Any ideas to help.I cannot install the windows xp/sp2 on the hard drive. The drive has been formatted with partition magic by my friend.
