We just build a box with the following items:
XP w/ SP2
Intel Core 2 Duo E6750 2.66Ghz
Gigabyte LGA GA-P35-DS3r
2gb Kingston DDR SDRAM
260gb Seagate Barracuda SATA 7200rpm
5 Seagate 750gb SV SATA 72rpm
Samsung 20x DVD-r Burner PATA Model SH-S202G
THe system has been up and running no problem, 2 week burn in period.
We ran an Acronis back up on it today and half way through the back up the machine locked.
Now the machine freezes on boot up right after ACPI Controller IRQ 9 loads.
We unplugged everything from the machine and started at ground zero.
Added the Sys. Drive back onto the MB and boot, same symptoms. Tried booting Sys drive with and without DVD-R drive plugged in.
reseated memory, cpu, vid card.
I reset CMOS and no go.
I checked the ACPI settings in Bios under power management and there is only 1 setting with to options, I have tried both options.
If anyone can point me in the right direction it would be appreciated. I have seen a few posts on this via EE and Google. Pretty much tried all of the different approachs I found with no success.
Thanks for your time and best regards,
