  1. Windows will not boot

    Windows Xp won't boot... no matter what
    i've posted this in like three other forums with no real help.

    Mach Speed PT88AS Mobo
    Celeron D 2.93Ghz CPU
    Volari V3 128mb graphic card
    512mb pc3200 ram
    diamondmax 10 160Gb HDD... and none of it works.

    POST is fine. hdd and cd rom show up fine in boot. after that a message "no disk attached" showed.
    i disabled sata drive feature in BIOS, since it's pata, so now the message doesn't show but i still get a black screen... nothing else
    little beep for the post, yeah.
    shows the processor type, yeah.
    memory check, all 512mb, yeah.

    could it be a video/motherboard conflict? a BIOS problem? won't boot from cd-rom either so what does that mean? and... has this ever even happened to more then just me?

    please help me!!! thanks

    i'd expect as much from the product. odds are overwhelming that you'll need a new motherboard. i reccomend you get a well-known name brand board to avoid wasting money/time.
