Do you have your OS disk ?

Can you boot to it ?

Can you boot in safemode ?

Have you tried LKG ( Last Known Good )

I don't see it being bios related as of yet. Did you install/uninstall anything prior this issue ? Any new hardware ?

i tried to update the bios through flash menu (utility for Abit Mobo) and thats when windows wouldnt come up and it hanged at logo screen. then tried to load optimized defaults. and tried removing and reinstalling ram to see if that was the problem but i dunno.

Sounds like it was a bad flash. You can reset the jumpers to reset the bios.


Also, prior to flasing a Bios it should ask if you want to save the old bios into a file. did you save it ?

i reset the CMOS by moving the pin from 1-2 to 2-3 and removed battery and mobo power connections.....still didnt work. i dont think i saved old bios. but i did save a profile previos to doing all this stuff and still didnt work.
