Was the computer hit directly by lightning? Is the computer behind a surge protector? In a rare but serious case, I dare say that your motherboard might have suffered damage due to the strike. However, we'll hope that's not the case and continue to ask and answer questions
I do not know if it was hit by lighting. We were not home. When we came home the computer had turned on by itself and had a blank screen. Yes the computer has a APC surge protector and battery back up.

Yes in safe mode and command promt a list of drivers go by. With the old hard drive the last two drivers it load are "Mup.sys and then IPVNmon.sys". With the new hard drive it stops on "Mup.sys". Yes I am trying to save the data on the old drive. But this old drive is not the oringial drive, it failed a year ago and I replaced it and the restore worked that time. Also the recovery disk ran fine, it completed the load and then restarted.
when you try to boot into safe mode....does a big list of drivers come scrolling across the screen? which one does it stop at? did you try to run the recovery disk on the original hard drive? or are you trying to avoid that to save data?
Also I have down loaded the system console boot program from emachine, they said this would let me boot the machine so that we could trouble shoot it. The boot takes several floppies, on the last one it locks up. Thanks

Good question, I will check this tonight when I get home. I have a higher wattage power supply in the computer, I will check it and also put the originial back in and test this to. Thanks
Your suggestion about drivers gave me a flashback... Are your fans working properly? Let's not rule out overheating yet
OK I check it out, the 350 power supply I have in the computer is working fine. I even put the old supply back in just in case (the new supply is for a video card I had put in,it currently has been removed so that I could do the reinstall).

Well I ordered a new motherboard, hopefully this will fix the problems. Thanks for all the suggestions.
