When I boot the comp, what the first thing I supposed to see? the BIOS provided info: CPU, Memory size, IDE devices etc. And What I do see? Nothing: blank screen and no "thinking" sympthoms from the case.
And it will be in such state for hours, unless I press any key on the keyboard, then everything continues as it should.
This problem appeared since I installed Zone Alarm Firewall on it. This was the only change in the system then, I disables NIS firewall, and replaced it with the Zone Labs' one. But it makes no sense that the firewall will in any way affect the BIOS
The PC I'm talking about specs:
CPU - Intel Pentium 4E, 3000 MHz (15 x 200)
Mobo Chipset - Intel Grantsdale i915P
BIOS Type - AMI (01/28/05)
Memory - 512 MB (DDR SDRAM)
Video - Gigabyte RADEON X300 (128 MB)
Monitor - ViewSonic VX912
Sound - Intel 82801FB ICH6
Hard Drive - Maxtor 6Y120M0 (120 GB, 7200 RPM, Serial-ATA/150)
The PC is also directly connected to the another one, providing him ICS.
Any ideas how to stop this "push the button" thing???
