    Hmmm.. well, i'm starting to run out of ideas. if it doesn't boot from a disk (have you tried booting from a bootable CD such as a windows CD or something?) and it rarely gets anywhere with a HDD, then it sounds very strange.

    I have my windows CD in and a disk with the HD diagnostic stuff from WD in the A: drive, but it doesn't seem to be checking either drive

    And you said you've got them set to boot from before the HDD.. Very very strange... I'll let ya know if I think of anything...

    Okay I had a same thing happen to two systems that I worked on for people. Took the whole dang thing apart thought it was the power supply and tried another board and CPU as I added expansion cards it turned out the sound card was bad. Booted up fine and is still going. The system had a bad modem.

    Maybe this will help.

    I've wondered about my sound card and did try removing but it didn't help. I'll try again along with my other cards

    k, I've taken out my Sound Card, network card, and swapped out my video card to no avail. I also tried changing my slave drive to master drive and that didn't help either :(

    Well here is one more idea. You may need to get a new bios chip from Abit. Had you flashed the bios prior to this maybe it's the wrong version or something. I know my epox recommends that you don't flash it while you have it over clocked (did you do that)?
