  1. When starting up my home machine the CPU hangs for at least 5 mins, during this time I can open certain programs but the majority of programs hang. I was wondering if anyone has any ideas since ive ran out. I have recently put a new HD, Burner and stick of ram in.

    Im am running a Athalon 1800+ with a gig of ram, OS is Win XP.
