Once it reached the 99% stage, the computer froze...COMPLETELY! There was no way I was getting it back! Ctl-Alt-Del did nothing, couldn't even bring up the Task Manager...she was dead in the water!
So, I pushed the PC's RESET button and let her reboot into SAFE mode. After floating around in safe mode for a while, I restart the machine and this is when the "fun" starts. She won't even POST. There is power, I can hear the HD and CD spinning, all the onboard lights are on, but she won't even POST.
I have to turn it off...UNPLUG it, and wait for the internal LED to go out before I plug it back in. Only then will she restart. MB is an ASUS M2N-E...apparently capable of running 32 and 64 bit, and I've installed every NEW driver I could find. This board and machine passed the Windows7 test to see if it was compatible.
Any opinions? I'm getting ready to go back to XP...
