Anyone ever have a problem with choking on startup just disable the splash immediately before the ram is marked and displayed just after the CPU speed. Not closed unless the switch off. Fans keep spinning and the fan in DVD-ROM (if you search launched) maintains board is included with bios 3.3 Beta, just upgraded to 3.3 and final. Not sure if that caused or a BIOS setting. Can anyone offer any information or evidence if they found this same problem? The strange thing is that this is random, 50% of the time, was enough to boot twice to install XP-SP2, but the start-up after it freezes at that time.
