PC Hangs at POST

Hi There, I know there was a similar problem to this one posted just the other day, but this does seem stranger. When I put my system together (it's a P4 3.2ghz, Video card is a Nvidia 7600GT, memory is 1gb PC3200 DDR, 260gb SATA HDD). It booted fine to the boot options screen asking me to go into safe mode etc. Probably because it was not a fresh XP installation for the new machine. Anyway I went into the BIOS and the only option I changed was to select the fail-safe settings. Now when I goto boot the machine it hangs just after the memory test and I cannot access the BIOS, my hardware seems to be fine as I have a display, it shows my CPU as correct and the memory as ok, I have tried resetting the CMOS with and without the battery in and changed the jumper even for over three hours but to no avail, I have tried MSI Tech support they were no help. So I was wondering if anyone can shed any light on this for me Thanks very much John

Re: PC Hangs at POST

Unplug the harddrive data cable,take out any cards that are plugged in, (ie., sound card, tv card, modem, etc..) and turn on the pc and see if you can get into the BIOS. If you can, go through your BIOS settings one by one and save settings. Plug the HDD back in and turn on the PC. Don,t insert the cards just yet. If it boots to windows your on your way.

Epox 8K9A2 motherboard ? hangs @ POST CODE "26"

Gday mate , you will have to start with BIOS settings on boot when it detects the drives at the bottom of the screen will be a press ( this button) to enter setup probably delete or F8 go to there and probably set standard defaults would be the best option in the list do tha and follow the prompts back to startup screen, unless it comes up with NTLDR missing which is in the OS files

Check memory, remove or replace sticks of memory with just one piece in the slot closes to the CPU. Now try a power on and see if it boots. You have at lease one good stick of memory to boot.

Intel d101ggc making buzzer sound at equal intervals and then pc hangs.

OK this buzz is suppose to be a beep.
The device you described is called apezo electric speaker and is suppose to beep a post code to help define a problem.

If it's buzzing and not beeping there is either a fault with the piezo or the motherboard is not receiving the amount of power it needs to properly drive the speaker.

OK back to the post code. The patern is important it should be a series of long and short beeps. The fact that it is buzzing and not beeping may make it difficult to determine the difference between long and short beeeps.

Try your best to hear a pattern in it. Whether its constant beeps or 2 short 1 long or any other discernable variation please post back the number of beeps and if there is a long or short pattern.
please post back here
