Boot Problem

By togi1 ·
I recently installed Win ME, after trying to upgrade from a Celeron 433 to a Celeron 677 which did not work, my system will not boot.

It gets to the Win ME logo and either freezes or shuts down completely. What do I need to do to get this to boot correctly?

I cannot get the safe mode to work or use the boot floppy because the keyboard fails to respond and like I said, I cannot get past the Logo.

You may need to refer to your motherboard manufacturer documentation. On the Intel website, the core voltage setting for a 433 is 2.0 and a 667 is 1.65 or 1.70. Your jumper settings may be incorrectly set. Try that, it should work.

First the upgrade may have caused a problem with the BIOS or the motherboard could be damaged,no info about error after the upgrade is provided,makes it difficult to analize.
What version of WINME,are you trying to upgrade from,are you using a fullversion or an upgrade to WIN98/98SE.
Reload the previous system to see if you can get the system back up,if not you will have to make sure there was no damage to the motherbrd.The BIOS is the first option to look into.

1: Be certain that all jumpers are correctly set.
2: Go into CMOS and load defaults
3: Install different RAM, it's just temporary.
4: Use a different Keyboard

If it still won't boot to floppy or HD, run some hardwared diagnostics. You could have a cooked CPU, MB or both. I happen to use the Ultra-x PCI PHD card. It spots problems that software diags miss completely.

If your Win ME is an upgrade I have heard that this sometimes causes a stable system before upgrade to become unstable after upgrade, solution was to reformat and install ME only it apparently asks for previous os disk just to check you have one. I have not tried this myself so do so as last resort.
