Default PC won't boot past POST

I can't even get into the BIOS hitting F2 or DEL doesn't help; it freezes at the post screen, so I'm wondering if there's a problem with the motherboard? I can't hear any beeps but that;'s cuz I don't have a PC speaker on it

I rebooted because I couldn't access websites even though I had a positive IP frrom the network on my NIC

You could try resetting the BIOS by moving the jumper pin over and then back.

What are your system specs? What were you doing at the time of the reboot? This could be a number of things, from bad ram, video card, failed HDD, corrupt BIOS, etc... So give us more info to help give a diagnosis

Default Re: PC won't boot past POST

problem seems to be resolved for now, I forgot about this thread after it came back

I've never seen it get stuck at the POST screen but I've got an ASRock Extreme 6, I manually rebooted it because chrome was being flakey saying I didn't have internet when I infact did and I checked my NIC settings and ran troubleshooter and it said that my PC was configured correctly but it couldn't contact microsoft.com likewise I couldn't access any pages.

I rebooted and that's when I ran into the POST freeze, then I thought maybe there was a disk in the drive (but the disk I have is non bootable and I've booted with it in the drive before without issues).

I checked everything out in the BIOS I didn't see any immediate concerns or issues including temperature alarms.

its back up and running, its bizzare
