then it would point to be something more hardware oriented.
Possible but I would think that the reason it crashes during Windows loading is when the draw on the psu is ramping up as components are activated, sitting in the bios is very low draw on the psu.

Not that I'm saying it isn't worth a try, when you're troubleshooting anything is worth a look if it may lead to a answer.

Agreed. but this is a quick simple test that should be tried before anymore steps are taken.

Mate, there are about six pages in a bios, one of them is called "Power" and that is where Asus usually puts Hardware Monitor, all modern bios' have a temperature reading in the bios somewhere, you're not looking hard enough. Have you looked in every tab in your bios??

Here is a screenie of an M2N-E boards bios showing Hardware Monitor, that is what you're looking for. It is there, if you can't find something as rudimentary as temps in a bios I think we'll have more issues with trying to find a fix for your problem.




EDIT: oooooooooops double post, mods please merge (if you feel so inclined)

How to do a Windows Repair BY LambOfGod


1. Go into your computers BIOS and set your boot order to cd rom first (usually DEL key, or F1, F2,)
2. Put the XP CD in the drive and save and exit the BIOS
3. Press a key when you see the screen that says press any key to boot from CD (right after the POST)
4. let windows load its files
5. press enter,(not R you dont want the recovery console)
6. then press f8
7. then press R for repair
8. and let the repair process begin.

good luck man


I pressed F8 to agree, but I hit enter not "R" There was only something about partition space. I guess I'll lose all my stuff?

I am a pretty big moron....thanks for putting up with me guys, and giving me all the help.

Custom PC. Built it myself. CPU is cold. GPU is mounted right, and cold. Hard-Drive is also cooled with dual fan. Like in my signature, I have two sticks of RAM, one gig each. They have a platinum coating and really stay cool. And no, I havn't over-clocked. It seems kinda dumb to me.
