My A7m266 hangs wheneverit is started, and doesn't even get to tey and boot anything. After the PCI List it shows the cursor(blinking "_") and doesn't do anything. Any Ideas?


ASUS A7M266

256mb DDR

Duron 1.3GHz

60 Gig HD

DVD Drive

300 watt AMD Approved powersupply


DVD drive and Hard drive disconnected leaving only floppy, but no help. All the voltages are correct. Onboard land is not present and onboard sound is disabled via the jumper.


Thanks

If resetting the cmos doesn't do the trick, go into setup (usually via the DEL key) and see if you need to modify some setting. For example since you only have a floppy attached, does your boot order include "floppy" as the first choice ? If so do you see the floppy light come on as the bios tries to read from the device ? If not, is your floppy drive connected to the end of the floppy cable (as opposed to the connector between the 2 ends) ? Run through all bios settings and see if anything looks fishy.

If this is possibly a new setup, are you possibly running an Athlon XP chip? Some boards have been shipped from ASUS with a bios that will not run with the XP. Fix is to boot with an older thunderbird chip, flash the bios to a new revision, then put the XP chip back in.
