      Is it the first time you have started it? Have you rebooted?
      If it is a new install and continues to hang after a few reboot attempts, you may want to go ahead and reinstall.
      Also does it have the proper driver for the monitor?
      Have you tried booting in SafeMode?

          Might I inquire what are the specs. of the System in question?

          I have an old IBM Aptiva Originally a P II 450mhz which I have placed a Celeron 1.0ghz on in the slot. On occasion I do run into the issue described (or similar).

          I am guessing that perhaps on Boot the BIOS, Processor and Operating System are getting confused by the addition of the new processor. I have had this system for sometime but the issue is intermitent and never consistent and I might add recent. After several attempts at rebooting I am usually able to gain a successful boot. I am using this system as a simple FTP server so it is on all the time, and usually not shut down. Sorry I cannot offer any other insight to the problem or issue.

      check the USB Ports

      If you have a memory chip or jump grive plugged into the USB port the system may be looking at it as a boot drive. The system will hang at that point.
