  1. searched the forums and tried a few things (install, unistall, switching cables, switching boot order, etc) heres the problem...
    i was using nero 6 to burn a dvd when norton came on and the screen locked..when i exited and rebooted every thing went thru fine until past the windows logo and then screen....after lots of trial and error i discovered if i disconnected my second hard drive (maxtor 250g sata) that the system functions fine......what have i done? the information on the second drive is not important (movies) so im ok there but it worked fine (with the exception of hanging most of the time when i would exit a burn)....any thoughts?
