    D915gmh boot stopped


      My system had been working fine for many months/years.  This morning I awoke to see the splash screen just sitting there.  I assumed a microsoft overnight update may have tried to reboot that failed.  But my system simply will not boot past the splash screen.

         Intel corporation  D915GMH desktop board

         Serial number :BQMH44100378



         Intel (R) Pentium (R) 4 CPU 3.60HZ

         DDR400 --> Operating in Dual Channel memory mode


         Total Installed memory:  2048 System RAM


         Legacy Keyboard. . . . detected

         Legacy Mouse. . . . . . detected

         USB Legacy . . . . . . . Enabled


         Hit <F2> if you want to run setup

         Hit <F12> if you want to boot from the network


      No errors, no beeps.  If I hit F2  it says entering setup and sits there.


      Removed all devices,  rotated memory, ran with 1 stick, 2 sticks 4 sticks, same result it sists at the splash screen.

      Disconnected all drives same results.  Tries bootable CD same result (no floppy drive), tried bootable USB stick


      Tried setting bios jumper to force bios -- get splash screen saying entering setup.

      Tried downloading bios to empty USB key and removing bios jumper


      Nothing seems to have worked.  Need help -- send Email too if you don't mind.  I'm not sure I can find my way back to this post from this device.
