One of the first things in the boot up sequence is to check the available memory. Do you have more than one stick? Can you try booting it with alternate sticks? Can you beg/borrow a different one to try? That way you can rule out a memory problem.

You might also want to read the Boot Up Sequence which reminded me that an early check is on the video card, so check that too.

It is not getting as far as loading windows if you look, so it does not matter what it is. He cannot get to BIOS

Fruit Bat /\0/\ Just about to post that, I am washing up, but it came to me that it will rule out the drives if they are disconnected and it will go to BIOS

That's why I was asking Op system as a corrupted boot loader can cause the BIOS to freeze
