    Hangs at boot up

    I'm using a CarNetix P1280 to power a Amptron iCue BKMVP4 Booksize PC. Intermittantly during boot up the PC hangs before POST. The Power On LED remains lit with the fans running and the hard drive activity LED is on for 5-10 seconds and the PC hangs. No POST test and no POST beeps.
    If the system is turned off and booted again it will often start without any problems. I have tried using the mains ATX PSU and Win 98SE (the orginal OS) and suffer the same problems.
    I initally had this problem combined with 5vsb problem but have resolved the 5vsb by connecting a jumper to the CarNetix P1280 PRI-out.

    Any ideas or advice appreciated.
