Maybe your board chip and bios are not supporting any of those plug into your computer. the reason why hangs on POST because it override the maximum limit presented on bios and chipset. Try Updating your bios and chipset. Warning! it must be a exact detail number and serial of updates you must use.

It is very risky but I try it with my computer. Now I can use large capacity of RAM, Hardisk and even PCI 2.0 plug-ins in computer with only 133MHz.

P5GD2 one post beep

Check the processor's heat sink fan. Make sure it's spinning. Blow out any dust or vacuum (w/ no power to the tower.) Reseat the memory. Try with one memory stick if you have two, resassuring to put in slot 1. Sometimes two different types of memory act weird together. Make sure memory is compatible. (ex. PC2100...)

Keyboard not working only during booting

If your keyboard is USB, switch to a standard PS/2 keyboard, and enable legacy support for USB in your bios.. This may help you, but your bios may not be able to use a USB keyboard during POST.

Emachine desktop is hanging at the intial startup screen

Most probably the keyboard has konked out. Simply try the same with a working keyboard & mouse, 'cos it seems to get stuck during POST(power on self test) due to one or more components malfunctioning. If you had removed the PS2 jacks recently, check for bent pins too.................sodeep

Keyboard locked during bootup

My Acer aspire 3003 keyboard and touchpad both started to lock up recently. I use it with the battery removed, it avoids the problem. The battery wasn't holding much charge anyway.

Laptop Hangs during voice chat.

I’m going to ask you some questions in order to better determine the solution.
Do you have Yahoo IM 8.1 installed which is compatible with Vista (this will also apply to the other software like G-talk, and Skype)?
When you have your software running (Yahoo, G-Talk, Skupe, etc) how much RAM is being used? CRTL-ALT-DEL to Task Manager and Performance Tab, then under PF Usage, tell me how much MB are you using?
Do you get this ‘hang’ with other software?
How many ICONS are in the right-hand corner of the tool-bar?
