I recently put a MSI K8M Neo-5 motherboard inot my PC with a Athlon 2600+. I formatted mt C drive and reloaded Win Me. It seems fine until I load the VIA K8M800 VGA Drivers. Before loading them I loaded teh driver for my TFT. When I loaded MBO drivers for on board VGA the PC would not reboot. Specificially if#t fros#ze at the point where I think it loads the screen. I have sincer reformatted drive C and reloaded Win Me. Any ideas of what I should do before trying the drivers again?
I inserted a separate graphics card and tried to get that working. It still freezes but at least with a cursor on teh screen. I am now going to try and reload Win Mea gain, then not load MBO driver just card. If that does not work I'll throw PC out of window and set fire to it.
Load Win ME, install chipset drivers and all drivers on CD including Graphics driver (are there two drivers on CD), no point loading monitor driver before Graphics driver. Is your Ram compatible with MoBo, ram can cause strange problems. Is ram and graphics card seated correctly, and is graphics card OK. Enjoy, Wossie.
