  1. Hi

    I having problems with my rig, when turn my rig on, most of the time the fans come on and the HDD spins up, the it hangs doesnt even get to POST, but after a random number of restarts it boots and then it runs nearly fine the LED at the back Flash in sequence as it boots and the code it flashes when it hangs is Early Chipset Initialization

    The other problem I am having is that my BIOS is picking up that i have RAM Dual channel, but XP is picking up only 1023.4MB of it, but sometimes it finds it all

    The spec of my PC are:
    MSI K9N SLI Platinum
    Athlon AM2 3800+
    2x 1GB OCZ RAM
    XFX Geforce 7600GT XXX, in SLI
    Western digital 250GB HDD
    430w Coolermaster eXtreme Power

    All my Drivers are up to date and my BIOS is as well

    Thanks for any help in identifing the cause in advance
