|I bought 8 gig of Gskill 1600 ripjaw memory. It was overkill, but it was only 43$. My bios is set to default values. I will have to check the boot order. I didn't do that. I did see that quick boot is enabled.|
I was able to load windows xp last night. I was thinking, maybe finish loading the Motherboard drivers and use MSI live update tool for windows and update the bios.I don't know if that will fix anything or not.
The main problem is when i turn off the PC. I have to clear cmos to boot windows back up.
PC first boots black screen say bios version numbers
second - MSI splash screen
final - black screen with cursor
I searched the web and seen some people with similar problems that had a corrupt hard drive and used killdisk to wipe the MRB (what ever that is) and reload windows and that solved there problem.
I have a couple of ideas. I will check your ideas first. Thanks for any help
