most likely if your getting past the memory test and nothing else..
something is either malfunctioned or plugged in wrong..
check your floppy drive.. doest the light come on and then go off on startup? does it make a noise?
if not.. and IF the floppy light comes on and stays on without making any noises.. or even if making noises or strange ones at that..
you may have the floppy drive cable plugged in wrong..
COMMON MISTAKE.. THIS HAPPENS A LOT FROM A LOT OF PEOPLE.
ha.. even happened to me once.. or twice (blush)
mainly because the floppy drives red stripe on the cable doesn't ALWAYS go toward the power cord.. as is the case with 99% of all HD's.
and this cable can be easily plugged in upside down.
but check there first..
as well as all the other drive cables..
I'm saying this.. because these are the next devices to be checked in the bootup hardware sequence..
are you SURE the cables are connected properly?
if this is not the problem..
try unplugging all cards except your video card..
check all calbes to make sure they are snug..
and boot it up..
hope this helps..
