system details: amd xp3200, nvidia lx5700, 160 gb harddrive. problem, pc was shut normaly and a couple of hours later went to restart and just hang after the post screen. there is power to harddrive, the SATA cable is firmly plugged in bothe ends. if sata cable removed it will boot from cd if required. help!
sorry for delay in reply but am on shift! new sata cable made no difference. boot from cd and get drive not recognised, or something like that. so i have to create boot disc and get new bios! wish me luck.
