Clutch13,

You have an ECS mainboard with a via chipset.

Here is the driver page.

http://www.ecsusa.co.../pt800ce-a.html

But you should have the driver disk that came with the mainboard.... hope it's the correct one.

Is the LAN driver needed for an internet connection? Why is that .... because it goes thru a router somehow?

Did you solve the bootup problem with the new Power supply? I mean, was that actually the problem?

Did you ever switch the voltage to 240v on the old PSU ? (Let's hope not.)

It helps if you give accurate feedback so we know what's going on and what worked and what didn't.

Windows isn't recognising the driver installation program for some reason.

I really think this might be a little over your head and you should take the machine to someone who has more knowledge and get them to configure your BIOS and re-install windows ......... correct me if I'm wrong of course.

The fact that the machine is running points to the fact that the hardware is working ok, and it's probably operator error.

You may be able to install the drivers thru their respective .inf files and using the devices property pages to browse to them from device manager, I can't remember exactly how the via 4 in 1 setup works offhand..... sorry.

What worries me is that you are getting the error, and it makes me wonder if your windows installation is corrupt or confused.

Did you reformat the C: drive before you installed the OS ?

Did you in fact re-install windows at all, or are you trying to use the old installation on the new hardware?

So many questions, so few facts...

Here to help. :tazz:

Well, if it were me, I would not hesitate to format, but I'm a confessed geek.

If you get your system working and it does what you want..... don't format until you really need to.

Hi Cluch, I would format and reinstall XP this should fix the newmerous problems.

You will loose everthing on the drive but at this point I think you have to.

I will look for a guide on how to format and install windows and post it here in a few minutes.

Glad the psu got your computer running.

Here is a guide to a clean install of Xp Win XP

Now that you got the computer running with the new psu you will be ok, just follow the guide. Anytime you switch mobo's to a different model you should either do a repair install or clean install of the OS. This is because of driver issues mainly but it is normal to have to do this to eliminate the problems you are now having.

With all the problems you went through it is my oppinion that you need a clean install and after all will be well.

Go into device manager and see if there are yellow marks next to anything. if there is then the drivers are not installed.

Run the disk that came with the mobo again and make sure you did not miss anything

Are you using the onboard sound or do you have a sound card?

Thats funny then your sound should work make sure the speakers are pluged into the right jack on the back of the computer and turned on.

If there are know yellow marks then all your drivers installed correctly so thats good news.
