    i jsut had a revelation, when booting up.. press f5 (or whatever the safe mode key is) and boot into safe mode, it will still most likely hang up, but it will tell you WHERE it hung up since it would be the last file it opens (which it would show you), get what that file is and ill easily be able to tell you what to do

    Any Luck? I know you've had a lot of info thrown your way. Don't get discuraged if it hasn't. Just another chance to learn something new....Or your coudl always switch to Linux.


    I was thinking about switching my car PC to Puppy. The whole OS is under 60mb and all loads into the RAM which makes it stupid fast. Not a bad interface either...

    Let us know how we can help. Hard to use yoru carputer if it won't boot.

    I work at a computer shop and i have encountered this problem many times before. Before you start toying with anything reset your bios to its failsafe default. But if you ask me I think its faulty ram. I've even seen the motherboard be picky about which slot the ram is in so change the slots its in and if that doesn't work try a different module. Also check and make sure you don't have any loose IDE cables.

    Cool This Might confuse but help out alot

    OK so I was checking on the net about the same issue, and to my luck I stumble across this thread. Well I also own a PC repair buissness and know how easy a pc can **** you off soo first step back for a sec and try this. This is funny but it worked use the process of elimanation and swap Ram bays- check jumpers on your drives including cd/dvd-rom- find another copy of your OS- Don't mess with bios unless it's only to set default- OK ill get to it I had to put a different Rom in to use my second copy which is the famous winall boot disk the client had a cd-rom and I needed a dvd-rom well when I changed it all the sudden its fine!
    I also stoped the setup and used the registered copy for my clients use and it ran great. long story short don't forget the unthinkable check your cd-rom.
    Good luck!
