Locked

ctl - alt - del causing lockups

By Bigfoot ·
My IBM 486/100 locks up each time I try to restart using ctl-alt-del, or any time any program restarts my system, restart in windows included. Restart in Dos mode works fine, but if I select "restart your computer" it locks up every time. It is not a windows problem because I replaced the HD with only running Dos and it still locks up each time ctl-alt-del is pressed. When it locks up, only a power re-cycle will restart it. I have reset the BIOS to default, which did not help, and also replacedthe processor. I know, it is a lot of trouble for a 486, but inquiring minds want to know, you know?

You didn't say what OS you have... Windows 98 SE has a problem with shutdowns. There is a fix posted on Microsoft's website.

Thanks,

Melody

Your right, it is not a Windows problem or apparently a software problem. A piece of your hardware does not like to be warm booted. I would try removing one card at a time and try to reboot each time. I would also try reseating, rotating, or replacing the memory as well since you already replaced your processor chip.

Good Luck

This might sound kind of dumb, but try another keyboard.

Also, Ctrl-Alt-Delete has an IRQ vector of its very own - start pulling cards and see if that fixes it.

Yes, i agree with answer no.1 but my recommendation is check your motherboard and try to check did your motherboard comes with SCSI controller or not, if yes, you just have to buy a SCSI cable and install the driver in your OS.
