Situation the following :

XP Home SP2
2 external HDD 1 x 120GB 1 x 160GB via USB hub.
1 internal HDD of 80 GB

Regularely my PC does not want to boot up. I see the MSI screen coming but than it stops. I have checked my internal HD for errors with the seagate tools no problems

I have gone over the startup list and nothing peculiar

This would mean I have to go into my bios right??

Did you test your RAM?

Did you try booting with your external drives disconnected? I have an external drive and my system almost never boots if it's turned on during bootup. Don't know why but it won't. Try disconnecting and see and maybe someone can help figure out what to do after that.
