URGENT >_< I need help BADLY

post #1 of 38
Thread Starter 
ok well my parts got here today and ive put them all in

i went from 3200+ 939 venice to a 4200+ AM2 Windsor, from a A8N-E to a M2N-SLI Deluxe, from 1 gig of ddr ram to 2 gigs on ddr2 ram.

CPU-Z says i have 2 gigs of ram and that i have the cpu in. cpu runs at 2.2 ghz stock and CPU-Z says may core speed is 2210 which basically is 2.2 ghz.

My comp takes so long to turn on now. my monitor flickers off and on when its booting up (used to do it but that was suspost to happen dunno why now) it also makes a weird noise when turning on. its like something is starting to turn on then clicks off.

Windows made me reactivate it sence there was such a drastic hardware change...that normal?


and no sound works at all.

[EDIT] also i forgot to add that the mobo didnt come with a IDE cable for my cd drive so i used the HDD cable. is that the cause of this?

Did you update the BIOS? An IDE cable is an IDE cable, there is no 'OMG THIS IS ONLY FOR TEH HDD!' cable.

wait a minute... did you just do a hard motherboard swap? Did you reinstall XP after the mobo switch?

You need to AT LEAST do a XP repair. Boot from the XP cd, and choose repair when it detects your OS. This will get rid of all the drivers for your old mobo, and update with the new ones for your current mobo. If you haven't done the repair, thats why its running slow, you where lucky it booted into windows at all.

ok i flashed the bios to the newest one released and poped in the CD that came with the mobo and installed the sound drivers but now i cant seem to get my headset to work. the 5.1 speakers work fine but before all i had to do was unplug the one for the l/r front speakers and put in the one for my headset and it worked fine and was all loud n good. but now if i do that i get nothing. I plug it into the black port (same color as the headset connector) and everything is all mono and soft and the mic wont work. any suggestions?


[EDIT] also i use ventrilo and whenver you speak it normally makes a clicking sound or something to say that your mic is activated i cannot hear that sound anymore :-/

Ok then, either try a repair and hope it ok or do a full reload which is highly recommended.
Currently the chipset in a maner of speaking is uneducated.
