This is my configuration :
Intel 945 GCNL Board 800 FSB
Core 2 Duo 2 Ghz E4400
Samsung 667 Mhz (2+2) 4GB DDR2 RAM
160 GB Segate SATA HDD
The problem I am facing is like this : When I start my pc, the I'm not able to see the usual "press F2 to load BIOS" text and even pressing the F2 button does not help. Next during the same period the computer hangs for about 2 minutes. And after this period the windows XP booting starts. After loading windows I find that many of the hardware(motherboard) components are not recognized.
Till now I have tried the following :
- Reinstalling windows
- Flashing the bios
- Resetting bios to default via motherboard hardware
I got a BSOD all of sudden which may or may not be related the above issues. please see the screenshot below :
But nothing seems to have solved the issues of 1) Hanging at BIOS boot and 2) Hardware components not recognized in windows. Any ideas on what the problem could be ?
