Default Boot-up problems

Hello all, I have been a reader of this technology forum for quite some time, but I have just recently registered. I have a question pertaining to a boot problem I've been having. Oftentimes when I have to restart, the pc will just freeze at my soyo motherboard screen. When this happened, I usually have to reset my cmos when this happens, and sometimes unplug my floppy drive, and my cd drive. I currently am only running with my HD plugged in to my MoBo. I think it is a problem with my bootup priorities, or maybe a setting in advanced settings in the bios that is causing me problems. Anyways, does anyone have any ideas? Thanks for your help.

Where does it stop? Does it display/detect your IDE devices? (HD, CD-roms)

Nope, it literally stops at the Soyo Dragon kt600 v 2.0 screen. that's it, just the mobo company emblem.

try running memtest86+ I just posted about how I thought my RAM was fried and when I was getting those thousands of errors it would stick at various POST screens and such.
