  1. New MB , Memory and HD. Unable to load Win 2K due to only drive SATA and lack of drivers for SATA.
    Loaded WIN98SE - all working fine. for one day.
    Power on system , passes memory tests and hangs before determining hardware setup. Unable to get into setup mode.
    Old keyboard but tests ok on other system.
    Suspect bad Mother board. Is my theory coorect ?

    Thanks to all who responded. The bug was a cdrw that I had moved to the new system from my existing system. Was working good in the old system moved to new system and it hung the BIOS in POST. Moved back to original system and it failed there also in the same manner. The wonder of electronics !!
    Now to move on to the SATA driver problem.
    Again THANKS for the hints and help.
