  1. Hi there, Can anyone help me please? I have just built a new system.

    Asus A7S8X-MX Micro ATX
    AMD Sempron 2400
    Samsung Spinpoint 80gb hard drive 8mb cache
    270w Micro PSU (Just bought this)

    What happens is it boots fine, gets to the screen that says Windows 98 ansd has the little bar at the bottom but then it just reboots! Is this something to do with the bios and not reconising the sempron? Any help would be appreciated. I am really upset that this isnt working as i did this for my mum and dad :( :(

    You must solve your bios not recognizing your Sempron ,before you worry about any O/S.
    Use the search function at this forum for your Motherbd it has had a lot of attention.
    I am a little wary of the power output of your power supply ,I think it is always better to be over 300 W , but that may be a serious problem.
