Welcome to G2G

You said the system starts normally after a reset but have you noticed any other problems in windows, such as Blue screens, locking up, rebooting etc?

If the system is actually halting during the memory count, or if you are getting any of the other errors listed above, I suggest you run memtest86 on the system overnight.
Download it from here :

select the floppy disk download. If you have more than one stick of memory in the system, you ought to test one at a time & remove the others.

The other possible cause could be the power supply
