Default Re: Computer gets stuck after CMOS clear

I don't know if your using windows xp or vista but it could be this:

When you try to start Windows XP, the computer may appear to stop responding (hang) with an empty, black screen immediately after the power-on self test (POST) is complete and before the Windows XP logo typically appears on the screen.

Cause 1
This issue may occur if you have a CD, a DVD or a floppy disk in your CD, DVD, or floppy drive when you start the computer.
Cause 2
This issue occurs if one or more of the following elements are corrupted and will not load during the boot sequence of the computer:
Master boot record
Partition tables
Boot sector
NTLDR file

Also I know you don't want to hear this right about now, but maybe it's time give up on that pc.
If it's cause that many problems like you stated, then I would move on to building a new pc.
Heck, if your HDD, CD-DVD drive and maybe your case is usable if ATX standard for building pc's then maybe you need to build a new pc.

If your budget for a new pc can be under 600.00 I'm sure we could give you a list for a MUCH better pc.
Even though I just installed a new mobo last week, and it finally stopped giving me a **** upon start up it's great pc under 490.00.

If your looking for something to hold you over until the beginning november go ahead and look into a LGA 775 socket build.
It will only require atleast 250.00 depending on your needs, even the celeron dual core 3300 is something that will last, take it from a guy who like's LGA celeron's as they have never given me problems.
