Could be your system is overheating. Have you checked if the CPU fan is spinning at all when the system is on? Because it'll shut down when the CPU heat is too high.

Before Windows starts up, you can't (*). Inside Windows you'd do this with your display properties, Advanced settings, monitor refresh settings.

(*) You can try to set a higher refresh rate through your monitor's on screen display (OSD) settings, but Windows may neglect those for startup. (Check your monitor manual)

(For the second one, IE 7 is depended on .NET 2.0 if I am not mistaken)

Did you load default settings/factory settings after you upgraded the BIOS? Because that's usually the way to do it:

1. Update BIOS (when done in Windows, do not forget step 2!)
2. Reboot the computer.
3. Go into the BIOS and load Default/Factory settings.
4. Save changes to the BIOS.
5. Reboot computer.
6. Set up your BIOS.

The screen refresh at boot time is lower than in Windows itself, which can account for the pics looking bad. I believe WinXP defaults at 60Hz. Only when you're in Windows can you rev it up.

Also, the size matters. Working from memory, the  picture should be 800x600, BMP format and a certain file size in KB maximum (I don't know that one though).

No, as far as I know it should be a bitmap (BMP) format.

Probably not, as the cards are made of cardboard and are very stiff. But your manual should tell you what you can feed through it. If it says paper only, it's paper only.
11  Software Support / Operating Systems : Microsoft / Re: Lost drives on: December 16, 2006, 12:58:27 PM
Are those physical drives, network drives, removable drives, partitions?
If the latter, are they both on one hard drive only?

Does your BIOS recognize them/the drive?
Did you reboot?
What happened prior to you losing them? Did you install something?
Have you checked if the power and IDE/SATA cables are still attached OK?
12  Hardware Support / Hardware Devices Problems / Re: Having hard drive problems. pls help!! on: December 13, 2006, 12:27:18 PM
Um... Let's see. You've got a total of 17 connections all together, but you need to use two for the speakers? Those 17 connections are the ones counted on the card itself and on the front bay. (Source)

The speakers only need one connection, namely the Line level out (Front / Side / Rear / Center / Subwoofer) on the audio card itself. So use the splitter for the speakers, if your speakers both come with a line out jack. (You are sure you don't need to plug one of the speakers in on the other?)

the plug is metal with a "Y" splitter you know where you can plug 2 plugs into 1 jack..
The splitter could be the problem. Can you test connecting the satellite receiver directly?

One person I saw managed to get his PC working again after he'd rebooted and rebooted and rebooted. On the third try it worked.

So I can't help you any further. You can try to take out your video card and reseat it.
Or leave that PC off for a day and try again. I don't know, maybe it's a specific gravitational beam underneath your house that's doing this. Wink

PCs are finicky creatures.

OK, the full error message seems to be:

During the last boot up your system hung for improper frequency combination,make sure the frequency combination conforms to the spec of your CPU,DIMM and other connected devices.

I've looked a bit around the web and seen that in most cases it is the videocard that is causing this. (Weirdly enough in all the cases I looked at, it was an Ati card doing this). Do you have another videocard to test with?
