hi there. Not completely sure this is the right place for this thread but anyway. I have an Advent 7046 (rebadged MEDION WID2000). I have recently completed a clean install. Each time I ask the machine the reboot, it shuts down fine, then hangs before the BIOS system checks begin and requires a hard shutdown, after which it boots normally. I suspect it is a bios problem, but I'm not certain, and the only bios 'updates' I've found so far seem to be older than my current version. Thanks for any help you guys can give me. It's quite frustrating.
