Windows XP Home & FS2002

Recommended Posts

Well, I've searched in the forums but have found no answer.Maybe you gurus of XP can help. Ok, I have been running FS2002 on W98SE up until Friday night. I installed a new Western Digital 100GB hard drive plus Windows XP Home. I updated the video drivers to 40.72 and drivers for Sound Augidy Gamers from their sites. My system specs are: AMD Athlon XP1700 1467MHZ 512 MB DDR Ram K7S5A Motherboard Extacy Gforce TI4600 128MB Soundblaster Augidy Gamers 21" Dell Monitor 17" Mag Monitor 100 GB WD Harddrive. Now here is my problem---XP will not restart when I try and shutdown. If I choose Shutdown it will Shutdown, however when I choose restart it hangs up and freezes with a black screen. Then I have to power off and the system will come back up with the screen telling me to start windows normally. What could I have done to cause this. Will the SP1 service pak correct this or the windows XP restarting update solve this. I'm at work so I can't download either one until later this afternoon.Any thoughts? Any help would be appreciated.Regards,Jim

Have you visited the MOBO manufacturers site for any updates for using WinXP with the K7S5A - http://www.ecs.com.tw ? Check for BIOS, controller chip, sound, graphics cards, NIC, modem driver updates. You will need to know the exact revision level of your MOBO. It should be stamped by the MOBO identifying information.
