It only hangs at Boot menu, even if I click F10 it stays.
Here is what I did.
Unplugged my IDE Cd-drive, but kept the SATA hard drive in.
Took out RAM, video Card (No ONBOARD), Sound card, and the Wireless Network Card.
I then booted it up, I got some kind of beeping, I googled it and that means it says there's no RAM, so motherboard is good. I plugged in RAM and I was supposed to hear some beeping meaning that my card is not being detected. I did not get beeping, and the internet says that means I need new RAM.
It's only like $15 for 256 mb of DDR ram (Pc3200) so I am just going to get new RAM.
Am I doing it right?
Bought new RAM, didn't work.
Put it in different slots, it worked.
Tried same with old RAM it didn't work at all.
So now it is with new RAM.
It's pretty funny this computer can be almost considered custom built.
Sound Card, RAM, Hard Drive, CD Drive, Wireless Card, and a new fan.
