probably just a random freeze. if it hangs anywhere during boot for no apparent reason this is the most likely place

I have had that happen before, but it didn't lock up. I just let it set for about 10 minutes and it finally caught up with itself. This was right after I built it. But that is good it doesn't do it anymore.

When Windows does that, its to distract you while Bill Gates sneaks in your room and takes a few more dollars out of your wallet.
Microsoft states that they won't take anymore as long as you buy Longhorn when it comes out.

Send a message via ICQ to daappleby

could be a keyboard issue. It will sit and wait for the keyboard for a certain length of time. Happens mostly with usb keyborads though.

Help us Help you:

1) <b>RTFM</b>
2) Search TF using <b>more than one</b> keyword or combination of words
3) Post specific details. We need your computer specs, your OS, and any details from the error messages you get.
