I have a Dell Dimension 5150 which is just booting to the post and freezing, do i need a new motherboard or can something be done to it for it to go all the way through and find the hard drive and other things, thank you.

Check the BIOS first

to verify that your drive(s) are being recognized.
If it is then use a boot disk (OS - Recovery Console, Downloadable floppy boot disks, UBCD - Drive diagnostics - MHDD32, etc) to perform a chkdsk /r (or other drive diagnostics) on the drive. If errors are found and corrected, run it again.

If not found then pop open the case and verify the connections are fully seated.
