Cold boot problem and Win.XP

  merlin 09:51 17 Mar 2003

My self built PC will not boot properly from cold since I had to re-install Win.XP due to a HDD failure.
It will boot to the Welcome screen and then just hang - if you press the reset button it will boot normally,it only seem's to hang from cold.
I have been told it may be due to a Non Certified driver for XP.
Any ideas out there ???
My PC has been running fine for the past 11 months - no related problems.
