hi peeps! A while ago my pc started to hang after loading that "load bar" prior to the XP logo. (Sometimes it loads all the way to Win and I can work it fine... sometimes it just hangs there) Actually they started after I installed a DVD-ROM drive and moved around some files with 2/3gb. At first I thought that something might have gone wrong with windows, so I formatted the drive and reinstalled windows. The problem remained, so I turned my attention to the hdd. It was a IBM deskstar 40gb... yes I know that IBM hdd tend to "fry" after a year or so. Has I thought it could be the hdd... I replaced it with a new one...The thing is it still does that hangin' stuff. I haven't flashed the mobo's BIOS yet. I've got a MSI k7t Turbo with kt133a and a Amd Tbird 1.2ghz. I know that for windows XP boot cd to word it has to be in a atapi cdrom... after installing XP, I took of the cd-rom and replaced it with a CD-RW... So now I have a CD-RW and DVD-ROM... does windows have any problem with this config? What could it be? Tks in advance.
