Hi Tom,
For the record, the question was:
---------
I'm building a new computer.  Asus P2L97, Asus AGP Graphics Card, Sound Blaster Gold.  SDRAM 132 with
chip  Standard IDE Hard Drive, CD-Rom, and LS-120 Floppy.

While installing Win 95, everything procedes fine until the 2nd restart where it says:  "Please wait while
Setup.....Configuration Files.  This may take a few minutes.

Completing updating files, continueing to load Windows..."

The problem is that my computer never gets passed this part.  I have built several other computers before, with this same
motherboard, but not the AGP Card, and not the SDRAM with the Chip, only the regular SDRAM.  The chip is supposed to
be some enhancement for the the memory.

What could it be?
------------
I must defer to Dennis's very well written answer, and you diligence:
=======
"Sometimes when we build systems and are unsure of the mix of components, sometimes either the components do not
cooperate with each other or there are physical hardware problems such as the damage you experienced. Our experience
here, as system builders, has shown us that when we propose a new line-up of components, we need to assemble them one
or two at a time to insure that they are compatible. Additionally, it helps to have a manner in which to test individual items to
make sure that they indeed work. For the single unit owner though, this is difficult at best. With that, I recommend that
when approaching a problem such as this, that the system be stripped to the basics and then rebuilt component by
component to develop the problem in depth."
Just a rule of thumb that we have used for a number of years!

How do you like the Celeron and do you think it could have possibly had anything to do with the problem??

thanks.
