more a freeze when checking the HDD, DVD then CDwrtr then it say Plug n' play initialsised and thats it, it just stops there.
if I restart byu pressing the reset button on case it will restart and boot with a slight pause at the screen showing all the Drives DMA channels, DDR and that then into xp desktop.
I did a IBM HDD diagnostic test and it came up ok, this HDD does make the odd squeek and click, its a needle in a haystack problem.
Can anyone suggest where to start to find the problem.
Again the Creative AGP x8 128MB DDR AGP card has its own power which you plug in a spare/free molex 4pin connector to it. I just wonder if this could have anything to do with it. I may try a spare 32MB SDRAM AGP card later.
Going to see if I can get any support from cruial.
