Hey guys, Im building a new pentium 4 2.4gh pc with 8x egp/agp and 256mb of ram But keeping the hard drive running Win 98. When i turn on the computer it starts to boot up but then freezes before it finishes starting up. I've done several tests but noticed that it freezes at diffrent points every time. Plus after the first attempt the monitor wont turn back on. I've tested on other monitors with the same result. monitor turns on but system freezes, every other attempt the monitor wont turn on. I've tried diffrent vga cards, the 8x and a pci card but they both have the same result. Hard drive works fine on original pc. As you can see im all out of ideas and would appreciate your help in determining the prblem. Is this a mother board or cpu problem? should i clear the cmos? Please help!!
