Hello TSF I browsed your forum and realy liked it.
I have this problem with my 6 months old self build computer.
Today I started-up the PC, It loaded Windows untill the note Windows is loading your settings, then it froze-up.
After several minutes I reset the PC with the reset button, now it stopped at the black screen after the windows logo.
The thirth time even the WinFast boot screen didn't apear.
Now I have opened up the casing the fan's work, HDD heared at power-up, There is no LED on my MB so can't check that, Display dosn't become active. DVD drives blink up at start as normal.
System: MB Foxconn 6100M2AM-2.0-RS2H, CPU: AMD 3800+ dual core, ATI x1550 grafics 256Mb, HDD's Seagate sata 40Gb en WD sata 250Gb (systeem) 2x IDE 200 and 250GB, drives DVD/CD-RW combo and DVD-RWDL20x, X-gear case came with 400PSU and 14/1 cardreader.
I suspect the PSU could be it, whats your opinion?
