disconnect all unnecessary peripherals and boot with an Emergency Startup Disk/EBD to see what happens.
As if my problems weren't bad enough with the other system. It seems as if I have an epidemic forming. I have problems, when I start my system it begins to boot, the bios logo comes on, nvram checks, hit DEL to enter setup comes on and boom, the system shuts completly off. Not just power down, I mean OFF. Can't enter bios or nothing. I have removed the battery hoping to reset the cmos, I have also removed the ide cables and the cards, except memory. put it all back and boom the same thing. Can anyone tell me what the heck to do. short of throwing this thing as far as possible
