Windows boot problems

  killlerkingo 20:49 15 Dec 09

Hello all I am a newbie and this is my first post. Here goes, I have just installed a new power unit in my PC,however when I turn on the power it freezes on the first post screen. If I remove all my prephirals it will boot up fine?? I can get into the bios using a old style keyboard connector (not usb) but not really sure what I am doing so don't want to mess it up. Any ideas or advice would be a great help

one at a time to find out which is stoping the boot.
Then question if that perphiral is damaged.

Thanks, I already tried this, after I boot to windows using a old keyboard, I am able to plug all perphiral's back in & it then all works fine. So I then restart the PC but again it freezes at post screen???

So you need to plug them in one at a time to find out which one is stopping the booting.

Hi, thanks I already done this & it wouldn't boot up with any of them, but allowed me to plug them all in once booted up with an old keyboard, would a system restore help?

It sounds like your power supply is not powerful enough! Is it a generic power supply or branded one and what is the wattage? Alot of non branded generic ones are not that good.

perphirals USB. If so you need to go into the bios to de-activate boot from usb or other devices.
