When exactly in the boot process does your system stop?
Without this knowledge, I'll have to guess on this one /blink.gif' border='0' style='vertical-align:middle' alt='blink.gif' /> . If it stops when POST checks and initializes hardware, then your pwr supply must not have sufficient capacity to support all the devices on your system with pwr. Otherwise, if that's not the case, then I'm not going to say anything about this until I have good details about this problem. Could you please detail when your system stops booting or running? And could you also post some system specs (esp about your pwr supply)? That would be helpful. Thanks! /cool.gif' border='0' style='vertical-align:middle' alt='cool.gif' />
