Re: Computer does not boot
That sounds like a splash screen. Sometimes you can get more specific
information by hitting TAB or ESC on startup. Or, if you can get into
BIOS you can usually turn it off.
Also, I would suggest putting your system into a minimal configuration.
Pull any cards, except for video if you need it, from the expansion
slots. Disconnect hard, floppy and optical drives. If you computer
POSTS at that point, add in your drives and cards to determine what
peripheral makes the difference.
If your system still hangs before the POST, reseat your memory. If you
have redundant memory (check your motherboard manual) use a minimal
amount. Swap memory to see if one particular module makes a difference.
If possible, get some entirely different known good memory to try.
