    I rebuilt my PC with a asus A7V8X-X and a AMD2800XP and had the same problem, flashing the Bios fixed it.
    Hope this helps.

    One of the things I would check it the Hard Drive. Most manufacturers have diagnostics that you can download via their website. Obviously you will have to do this on another computer. The diags should fit on a floppy. Hope it all works out.
