Asus A7V333 and Windows XP Pro Problem

1949 Views 2 Replies 2 Participants Last post by  Byte
Hello, I have been in hell trying to figure this out. Maybe someone could offer some advice or has found a solution to this problem.

Here is my system:

2x Samsung 256MB Pc2700 DDR SD-RAM
AthlonXP 2200+ OEM
Maxtor 40GB U133 7200 2MB
Mitsumi Beige 1.44 FDD
Creative Labs Live! Value 5.1 OEM
Powercolor Radeon 9000 Pro 128MB
Speeze SocketA/370 Cooling Fan up to XP 2200+
10/100 Fast Ethernet NIC PCI its brand name is Elements Realtek chipset W/PCI 2,2 ACPI, W.O.L.
Norcent 40x12x48x Internal IDE CDRW
Asus A7V33 Socket A Motherboard (BIOS 1014)

It took me 6 tries to get windows xp pro to install on this machine. I kept getting the blue screen of death when it would start copying the files for the final time. I solved this by removing the NIC and the sound cards, but when I finally got windows xp pro running. It was so unstable I couldn't do anything.

I tried ASUS' tech support, but they weren't helpful at all. Can anyone suggest anything or point me in the right direction? ANYTHING would help. Thanks.

Found the problem, but have another...

Apparently it wasn't anything that I previously thought it was. I tried a Vodoo 3 video card instead of the ATI Radeon 9000 Pro, and the installation of windows XP Pro went smooth as silk. Now, how do I get the Radeon to work?
A7V333 troublee/...?

Must be a driver issue. Did XP recognise the VooDoo3 automatically?

You could call MoBo manufacture to get support on installing
video. Or contact video manufacture. hope you have luck.
