so it doesn't reboot and we can MAYBE get an error message (assuming XP or 2000), rt click my computer, properties, advanced, startup and recovery button, and remove check from 'reboot' in the system failure section. Now it'll just freeze, which still sucks but maybe we can elicit a error or find out what is not responding, etc.
