Why is my machine hanging up during the boot process
Posted on 2007-04-10
I hope this is the right forum for this question.
This all started while reloading Windows ME. I left it while it was formating the hard drive, and have no idea what happened after that.
I have a HP M390N, American Megatrends Bios Date 09/04/03 and at the begining of the boot sequence it makes it all the way to declaring the primary hard drive.
An Ultra DMA Mode-5, S.M.A.R.T Capable and status O.K.. And then it just hangs.
If I hit F1 to run setup it recognizes the key stroke and says it's entering setup but nothing else happens. It's waiting for something but I have no idea what it is waiting for.
This probably is not enough information, I'll provide whatever info you need.
