system halts in the boot process
I managed to solve this problem by reseting the BIOS(removed the CMOS battery). I think it may have been an IRQ problem(wild guess).
Now i moved the computer again and got the same problems when trying to add another harddrive. I had accedently had put the old harddrive in the secondary IDE slot and the new in the primary IDE slot. So i had to reboot and move the IDE cables. Now when i try to boot i get almost the same problems(same graphical glitches). Exept when i try to boot i cannot get past the screen that says "System configurationCPU type"(i believe this is where the computer shows the PCI- and the other devices). The computer stop there and won't do anything. The only thing i can se is that the diskett drive is flashing constantly. I have tried several times to try remove the CMOS battery and then boot but i never get past the "System ConfigurationCPU type" screen.
Can it be that i have an faulty device(graphicscard, motherboard, memory...)? should i try to remove all the PCI devices and check if its anyone of them who are causing the problems?
Thanks a billion in advance /Jonatan
