Hi Bare Foot Kid and others,

So sorry for being off for couple days.

Specification:
operating sys : windows7 hp 32bit
cpu : intel core2duo e6600 2.4gh
mb : asus p5k deluxe (3years old)
ram : corsair 2gb
gc : asus 6600gt fan less
hd : western digital wd6401aals
cooling : zalman water cooling
dvd drive : sony dvd rewriter ide connection

I did follow all your advise and it didnot work on my pc ahh..! After read from other member: howerdser on this forum who got succcess after he replaced the harddrive from 1TB 6gb/s to 500gb 3gb/s; welldone.

Today i bought a new harddrive: sata3 western digital wd6401aals 640gb 32mb cache 3gb/s to replace sata 640gb 64mb cache 6gb/s. My motherboard / southbridge is only support 3gb/s sata. BIOS can see sony drive and wd6401aals. But after i load Windows7 hp full Retail, windows loading and stop where they are 4 colour red, green, blue, yellow circleling aorund, that was it and then the screen went to sleep (black). I waited for 1 hour and it nothing change.

Tomorrow i'll buy a new Sata Optical drive, well we'll see if it going to work. And also i might buy Asus P8P67 motherboard

Is there any info guys it'll be appreciate

+1 stormy13: This is by far the easiest way to update your bios all you need to do is forat the usb stick and put the.bin file on it then go into your bios under EZFlash 2 and slect the USB stick and flash your bios.
Remeber to remove the USB stick upon restrart. I have used this everytime I have uypdated my ASUS board.

I am almost sure that your Windows 7 was perpectly installed when " windows loading and stop where they are 4 colour red, green, blue, yellow circleling aorund, that was it and then the screen went to sleep (black)" .

If it was perpectly installed, why the screen went to black forever?

I experienced the same problem 2 years ago when I installed 1 or 2 beta versions of Windows 7.

It might be the Nvidia Driver of your 6600gt fits not Windows 7 !!!

1. Download any Nvidia Driver newly released and save it, perhaps you would be
interested in this topic "Nvidia, Digital Vibrance and Image Sharpening",
2. Restart your PC and go to the Safe Mode,
3. Install the downloaded Nvidia Driver,
4. God bless my advice, and hope it works....

And, after restart the pc and go to the Safe Mode,

I believe, and I hope, both of us has undergone the same problem and would work it out the same way.

Good luck to you.

If you had a bad bios flash you wouldn't even be able to start your system. if this is the case you can buy a pre-loaded bios chip with whichever bios you want on it from the biosman.

I've used him lots of times when I used to purchase boards that people had bricked their system due to a bad bios flash. I would just purchase another chip and whala the board would work.
:: BIOSMAN Inc :: Consumer Electronics Show : 2009 : CES

The bios is a the motherboards"Basic Input Output System" it's the operating system for the motherboard. So if it's bad your board won't even start or go through the screens that flash by real quick testing all your hard drives, optical, keyboard, mouse, graphics ect.

One can do the same thing manually. Just copy/paste the original bios file and the flashing utility to a bootable thumb drive, then boot from the thumb and run the flasher.

Crashfree Bios probably packages all that stuff (bios file, flasher, boot files) together so its more convenient. Like the phoenix crisis recovery.

Yesterday i downloaded bios v.0902 p5k deluxe from asus.com and also downloaded nvidia 6600gt latest driver. Saved it in usb memory stick then installed onto pc. Insert the usb stick to usb port, insert win7 disk to drive and turn on pc. While booting i press space bar, in second the screen showing in Safemode window. I press Enter in Safemode only, suddenly Win7 start install from beginning untill finish. Whoala...! What a surprised. I hadnot installed the bios v.0902 and 6600 driver yet.

So i Thank you to : stormy13, thefabe, woolswell, bare foot kid, gregrocker, theog, bill2, ponmayilal for ur info and sparetimes.

*But 1 prob is i can't use Creative Sound Blaster Xfi Fatality card because it is not compatible with Win7. I did download the win7 32 bit driver from creative.com but win7 is still refuse to install it

I need this Xfi Fatality ( THX Superb sound ) for listening music, dab radio and movies. Any solutions ?

Cheers
