When I installed XP on my VIA motherboard, it kept crashing - it would say "there was a problem loading windows, you must reinstall" and when I tried to do a format, it would fail... After going through everything (ram, hd, psu) I finally found some info on the Viarena forum board that mentioned a bios setting. whatever it was did the trick. Everything worked fine after that. The problem is I cant find the post, and have NO IDEA what the setting was.
I had to replace my board, and I have no idea what that setting is. Anyone have similar experiences ? or just happen to know what that setting would be ?
