I run an internet cafe with 30 comps. Where recently my main comp at the counter started having problems.
It won't boot... when I try to start it, it'll hang at the windows logo with the progress bar stopped in one place. I formatted it to do a clean install and it's still hanging.
At one point, I thought it could be because I haven't updated the BIOS, but it's still not working after the update. After a few days of research, I found out that the cause of this problem could be due to my drivers not being compatible(?) or improper(?). I'm down to network(ethernet controller), audio and graphic but I can't pin down exactly which one. Can anyone help please? is there a program or something out there that can tell me exactly which driver it is?
My mobo is Asus A8N5X, AMD Athlon 64 Processor 3700+, 2.2GHz with 1GB of RAM.
OS: Windows XP Pro
P.S. I don't know if this has anything to do with the hangs, but I have been installing various programs(limewire, ad-aware, alzip, various players) without a restart. Should I be restarting after every install?
Many thanks in advance!
