Hi

My Rig

Athlon 2500XP+ Barton FSB running at 9.5x200/1900mhz
Radeon 9800Pro
1024MB DDR400
Soundblaster Live 5.1
XP Pro

At the moment when booting up i get a hung black screen perhaps 1 in every 10 boots.

Any idea what would cause that?

Thanx

sounds like a PSU issue... maybe its not giving enough energy~~ try unplugging one of your device (soundcard, vid, ram etc) then observe your system ^0^

Yes,try to unplug some of your devices and also check the cpu's temp.

I have a batch of Intel 845 chipset mobo's here where i work that exhibit the same behavior we solved that by swappimng out the mice on all these machines belive it or not. the only thing different between these boxes were the type of mice that were connected to them. we either hooked up USB mice or PS/2 MS Intellimice v 1.3 and all worked.

Just giving my 2 cents in case power isn't the issue.
