I am having an unusual problem; I just updated my system to the following specs:
Mobo: MSI K9A2GM V3; CPU AMD Athlon 64 5000+; mem 1024mb corsair DDR2
My HD, which I did NOT upgrade, is a Seagate Barracuda 7200.11, 1TB.
After re-build, Windows only booted to the splash screen, and the time bar went by several times, then the computer auto-rebooted. Every reboot does the same thing. If I F8 and go into safe mode, the computer boots without a problem. I thought it might be an unrecognized problem with the HD, so I swapped out a Samsung 250gb HD from another system I have, and exactly the same thing happened! I figure this has to be something mobo related, I have tried futzing around with the BIOS ("load fail-safe defaults," etc.), but nothing gets me booted. Has anyone seen this? What do I do?
Thanks for your help,
