Just a refresher on the origins of this problem from his other thread:

I did some research and discovered this is a memory/RAM problem, but i found no way as to solving it. I reset the CMOS and tried booting the computer with 1 stick of ram in various slots. Also, i could not touch the memory options in the bios because it says it is not detected.
System specs:
Mobo: EVGA nForce 780i
RAM: TWIN2X2048-6400C5DHX http://corsair.com/products/xms2dhx/default.aspx
CPU: Intel Q6600
Video Card: Evga 8800 GT
OS: Vista 32-bit
PSU: Thermal make 600w
The memory problem was solved.

If you are using IDE Hardrives and you have the jumpers conflicting (Say you have a Hardrive and a CD Drive on the same IDE Channel both set to master,It will freeze at the bios).

Using Sata drives

Did you enter the BIOS and enable the failsafe settings, then save and exit?
Not too sure what the fail safe settings are

When you first enter the BIOS setup, on the main menu, there should be some options in the right hand column such as Load Fail-Safe Defaults and Load Optimized Defaults. Select one, push the Enter key and then press Y, Press F10 to save and exit.

Yeah i think it may be something wrong with the motherboard OR PSU,I Had a similar problem with an Asus motherboard that refused to go past the BIOS - I Changed the PSU And It worked no problems.
