Ok here is a deal.
I have had this PC for few years.
I have replaced motherboard with CPU Asus P5VD1-X mobo
Intel Pen 4.
I have kept the same hard drives , video card , DVD roms and all still the same.
when I start up PC it starts but then pop ups that I have to Activate windows.
I try to activate online.
but it tells me its "windows was unable to activate online"
why ? what is wrong and why its asks for activation in the 1st place ????
I have not installed any new OS or anything.
I have internet connection on my PCs
and its a legit copy of WinXP pro.
Also if I do get it to work.. with this GPU work with that MoBo?
at the moment I have GeForce 6500
Please help me
You should always reinstall Windows when you change your motherboard. If you don't Windows will be automatically deactivated. Also keep in mind it will cause driver issues and system instabilities. So backup everything, reinstall Windows and you'll be fine.
EDIT: Oh and btw the graphics card you showed will work with your mobo.

Ok thank you very much.
At the moment I am running win reinstall or so I think..
but now its been like 10 min or so.. that it saying "finalizing installation"
2 min left.
but still nothing happens..
Did you format your HDD before reinstalling?
Make sure it's a fresh install
well Im back to that crap...
asking me to activate online..
and then tells me it can't activate
what the hell... ?
well.. now it just shut down on its own.. and won't
ok... now it starts...
but it won't start reading any OS that I put in on CD or DVD
out of 5x OS that I have ... it reads only one winXp
Did you change the mobo of a pre-built computer?
What do you mean ?
it was 2x old PCs.
I removed this MoBo with AMD CPU from case
and put in this MoBo wtih Intel Pent 4 CPU in
so the end result of what it have to be in is
Coolermaster centurion 5 case
430w PSU Antec
Intel Pen 4
3GBs RAM pc3200
GeForec 6500 video card
2x ATA hard drives.
one is slave 2nd is master
2x CD/DVD drives
1st it was starting up.. and I was trying to ether install new OS
but for some reason it was reading only 1 out of 5x OSs that I have
2x WinXP Pro
only reads one of WinXP Pro
I was reinstalling it.. and then in the mid of it
PC shut down.. I was trying to start it but it won't recact
I unpluged it from the wall... tried to start again..
it blinked and fasns spined for 1-2 sec and it remained shut down..
Try to clear the CMOS see if it posts.
how can I clean it.. ?
1. Turn your PSU switch off
2. Locate the jumpers on the board (see picture)
3. Move them from position 1-2 to position 2-3
4. Wait 10 sec
5. Put them back in their original position
6. Turn the PSU back on and boot
hmm let me try..
you think it will help.. ?
When I can't post it's the first thing I try.
O_o that 8400 does run kinda hot
you probably lost those operating systems when you replaced the motherboard. at least you learned for the future.
going to try connect it again..
but.. the cables off panels of CM kinda wired.. like hmm wonder If i conenct them right to mobo
Ok.. I think I connected everythng right..
I see the green light on the MoBo lights up when I plug the power.
but when I push the button to turn it on
whats wrong ? help
those cables are from your Case panel. You need to find the Clear CMOS slots on your motherboard. Look well at the diagram he gave you.
Yeah, wrong cables. Those are for your front panel case connectors (power, reset, HDD activity LED, etc). To reset the CMOS, check in your motherboard manual for jumpers. Usually, you move the jumper from pins 1-2 to 2-3 for 5-10 seconds and then put it back on pins 1-2. You could also try removing the CMOS battery for 10 minutes and then putting it back. Some boards also have CMOS clear buttons which does the same thing except you don't have to mess with jumpers.
I think that asus mobo is dead or something wrong it it..
it won't work in any PC.....
I put back old one.. and PC turns on...
dang.. shame.. I really wanteed to use that Intel Pen 4 CPU and that mobo on that fathers pc..
