I am having major difficulty setting up windows 2000. The problem is that after installing the OS and setting the intial settings (network, time-date, etc) it restarts, like it should. Then it boots up normally until it get to the screen where it says Microsoft Windows 2000 Professional Built on NT Technology page. The status bar at the bottom goes all the way to the right then a moment afterwards that blue bar that changes from light blue to dark blue stops. I still have control of the keyboard (meaning i can hit the num lock or caps lock and lights comes on and off) so, the computer has not completely frozen up however, the hard drive led has gone out after that period. I have tried going in under safe mode, however I cannot find anything abnormal except that instead of one Network Adapter, there are five. They are Direct Parallel, Reltek PCI Ethernet Adapter (that is my actual, physical NIC card), WAN Miniport (IP), WAN Miniport (L2TP), and WAN Miniport (PPTP). If I try to delete on of these besides the Realtek, it says that I cannot because it helps to boot up the computer. Anyway, that is the only real abnormail thing I found.
Thanks for helping,
