Major Start-up hang time/PowerCenterPro 210
Posted on 1998-07-27
My Power Computing PCP210, w/64 megs Ram, running OS8.1 has had a 3-4 minute hang during startup for a long time. Desktop rebuilding, Norton Utilities, PRam clearing, complete hard drive reformatting, clean installs, and extension off starting has all been tried and failed. The hang time occurs directly before
extension loading. The hard drive seems to be accessing info during the hang time, at least I can hear something going on there. Problem used to be intermittent, but now has become a permanent annoyance in my life. My machine did not do this when new, a little over a year ago...but the machine
came with it's own version of OS 7.6. Secondary question: Is Apple still supporting the archetecture of Power Computing?....and perhaps there is an "enabler" that I should have gotten before 8.1 installation?
Good Luck with my stumper...
