I don’t think W7 is going to add much to this project other than some bragging rights. After exhaustive experimentation with W7 on the A7, I’ve come to the conclusion that it’s not meant to be. The system seems to be as solid as a rock, and even IE8 plays fairly nice. The heart of the problem seems to be the Nvidia GeForce video card. It’s kind of disheartening, as Nvidia didn’t seem to address this failure head on. We just have different ideas of what period correct means.

However, the adapter would have no part of the XP install routine, even after it properly installed the SI drivers via F6, and still cnotroller that it couldn’t find a HD.

My system is a Shuttle SN41G2B which has ample cooling provided by a heatpipe and fan so that definitely isn’t a factor in the overheating problem. I’m still kind of wishing for a “hey man, yeah I did that” kind of response from someone out there. I spent way too much time trying to solve that issue. You’ll need an aftermarket heatsink with a copper core and a large fan to keep them barely within thermal spec.


It’s the slot closest to the CPU: A heatsink with a fan would be a better option if available. After I was done recapping and powered it on, every capacitor on the board exploded all at the same time. The problem you’re having is not the video card, it’s your CPU. It’s difficult to be a ‘good guy’ seller on Ebay these days. I don’t think W7 is going to add much to this project other than some bragging rights. This is the fault of the mainboard and the USB hub, who are both doing something they’re not supposed to do.

When the snow flies up here this winter, I may take another look while doing some more research. As a seller, I went round and round with Ebay and they finally got onboard raie backed me up.

As for Linux, just not my thing. Problem could also be in the add-on SATA cards. In my experience, there have always been a few ‘gotchas’ when trying to retrofit new technology to older systems.

Honestly, a gs is a better preposition for a beefy AGP card. Do you think you could make an image of that CD?

Join our community today! Some buyer from Russia got in the way as I originally offered free shipping. I can find plenty of references to it, but no download links. NTFS and I went to bed. Yes, it’s possible to slipstream drivers onto an XP install A7nn8x. What OS are you using XP? Was it just bad or inferior caps the first time around?


It was such a common occurrence that companies started selling shims to place on top of the CPU to make a level surface for the heatsink to mount on. Also, the memory will be bumped up to 3 GHz.

Down but not out. I attempted to install a Kingston SSD rakd the primary drive and that failed. Microsoft, Asus, and NVidia all passed the buck on pin systems.

Initiated return through Ebay. To tell the truth, I don’t think I’ve ever had a game dump like his one.

So when football is over tonight, I’ll try to get the install moving. The last file, PAK You’re really dedicated to that ASUS board, it would have driven me crazy long ago.
