I have a problem that I am looking for some help on. After putting everything together and booting up after installing Windows, I ran into a weird sound driver crash, so I decided to re-install windows. I booted from the floppy, formatted, started "setup" and after the first auto restart in the install, the computer boots, posts fine (no errors, no beep codes), recognizes the floppy, CD-Rom and the hard drive....goes thru the highpoint controller screen, then the screen flashes to a black screen and the cursor just sits at the top left of the screen. (I can't move the cursor either) There is a audible "click" that would normally be followed by the computer going to access a(Floppy,Rom, HD) drive.I have no idea what's going on. I can't even get it to boot to any drive now. I've tried changing the boot sequence order too. (Still nothing)It always hangs at that same point every time. It's an dated system, but most of it was brand new. I got the motherboard and cpu's new from a freind that was going to build a server years ago and never got around to it. I was going to eventually use the computer as a Linux box so I could try my hand with that OS instead of Windows.
Here are the specs
Motherboard Abit BP-6 (NEW)
CPU Dual Celeron 266's (NEW)
128 mb PC100 Mushkin RAM (NEW)
13.0 Gig Maxtor Diamond Max HD (OLD)
3dfx Voodoo 3000 Video Card (OLD)
Sound Blaster Live 5.1 Audio Card (OLD)
Realtek Ethernet Adapter (NEW)
Big Server ATX Case w/Sparkle 300w PS
Any help would be greatly appreciated. I'm scratching my head on this one. The computer was running fine now nothing.
