Re-seat all cables & memory. Set BIOS to fail-safe. Clean FD & CD drives and disks. Try again.


=====================================
If at first you don't succeed, you're about average.

Clear cmos? I once had an old pc with an award bios (like i believe yours might be) installed a new harddisk and locked up at "verifing dmi data pool", cleared cmos and all was good.
