The Issues: sometimes when I turn my computer on it powers up, and that's it. no drive acess lights come on (though I can hear them spinning up) the monitor doesn't turn on, nothing. It'll take me about 8 to 10 times turning it on before it actually goes through a normal BIOS, and sometimes, it'll boot just fine, but still won't turn my monitor on. the hardstuff: athlonXP 1400 Biostar motherboard 768 megs 2400 DDR (Generic TWCO brand) Maxor 30 gig 5800 RPM HD maxtor 60gig 7200 RPM HD Lite-on 32x CD-RW GeForce 2 64 Soundblaster live! 5.1 platinum. running XP there has been NO overclocking what soever, nor have I changed ANYTHING since these problems started croping up. my OTHER (work) PC is also having some major issues as well: XP locks up whenever internet explorer is run, also I have tried 3 different brands of ethernet cards (soho, linksys, and some generic brand) and it fails to properly install the drivers everytime. the plug and play digital camera, which works perfectly fine on this PC, is not detected at all, and I can't even manually detect it with the provided software. I'm thinking that I need to reformat and reinstall xp on my work PC.
