Hello, I am currently putting a system together, P4 prescott 3.0 ghz, 512MB Kingston pc3200 Ram, 80 gb serial ata drive with an ECS 865PE-A motherboard.
When I first booted the machine it wasnt recognizing the serial HD, so I rebooted and went into the BIOS to enable the SATA connection.
Rebooted the machine and then it froze at the point "verifying dmi pool data...".
Rebooted and then received no POST, no beeps, nothing on the monitor, I turned off the computer, reset the cmos, turned it on, received a POST, went back in to the BIOS and all of a sudden the bios freezes.
Now no POST again. (Fans run, LED's on). What in the devil is going on here? I am at a complete loss. Thanks for your time.
