    Shuts down Ok but hangs on the Windows 2000 logo when it comes back up. Have to recycle the power to get it up.

    reformatted, still does it
    installed latest survice pack, still does it

    anyone had this problem?

    Yes I've had that do it to me - turned out it was a hardware issue with the motherboard and CPU. But before you jump to that conclusion, try booting into safe mode - it could just be your video card it doesn't like.

    Keep in mind Win2K starts up slower than 98 and XP. (all of the services)
