Computer Hangs at Motherboard Splash Screen
Posted on 2011-05-01
Have a computer that hangs when the machine is booting up. It hangs at the motherboard splash screen (it is an Asus A7V8X-X), when I hit tab to see the POST info, it goes through the following:
Motherboard info, lists processor (Athlon XP 2600+)
Initialize Plug and Play Cards
PNP Init Completed"
Can get into Setup, but nothing seems out of whack. Have cleared the CMOS tried to boot again, nothing.
Have swapped: power supply, RAM, have attempted to boot with no drives connected (there is only a hard drive connected now), all to no avail.
Its an old board/machine, so I'm just about ready to give it up for dead and pull the data off it, am looking/hoping for any other suggestions...
Thanks in advance
