i recently built a computer with the 748lmrt motherboard from pcchip, intel celeron 400mhz sepp processor, at power supply, 64 mb pc100. everytime i install something and it says to restart the computer, the computer reboots, but doesn't come backto the windows desktop. it stops with a blank screen and cusor blinking. i have to turn the computer off and back on twice everytime to get it to start again. i've never used the AT power supply before. can someone help me? thanks ls2450@earthlink.net

There is a number of things to check out
Check memory is seated properly
Make sure that all connectors are properly connected
Check the card slots to make sure everything is seated
Reboot the computer with the startup disk in floppy drive and boot computer and run without cd rom support and when it is completed,eject the floppy and reboot

I will assume that memory seating and all other connections have been verified. First, go to your CMOS Setup and make sure that your system is set to a PnP Operating System (under the PnP/PCI section.) Then, enable the line that says "Reset the Configuration Bit" on the same page in the CMOS Setup. Next, restart Windows and make sure that the motherboard drivers are installed from the CD-ROM that came with your motherboard. Once these are accomplished, things should go a bit smoother. If you still have problems, you might have an interrupt conflict. Many times these are the result of a couple of PCI cards that are being stubborn. One method, to eliminate this kind of problem, is to remove all cards (maybe you will need to turn off the on-board audio, too) except for the video card. Then, get the system working and install one card at a time. If one card gives you a problem, move it in a different PCI slot and try again. Repeat until everything is installed. Good luck.

our phone lines have been out. i tried everything you said, but it never helped. i did fix it my self by setting the mb bus speed to 66mhz. the computer would restart then, but had the box for safe mode come up everytime. i went into the msconfig and system.ini, i think,and disabled some bootup files. it worked, don't know exactly how. thanks for your help, it did get me to where i wound up.
