Bobby Hill Sounds like a power issue... clean out your power supply and try to boot it again.

nitrofreak If it only wigs out when you try to boot it at home, is there something you are plugging in to it at home that you are not taking with you to Fry's?? An external HD or something...

It could be that you are not getting good power from your house, but this is unlikely.

I bought a refurbed a1330n HP and upgraded the video to the GeForce 6 series and also upgraded to a T.Take 500w PS. One day I see my PC sitting at the HP Invent post screen. I have since then taken out the upgrades and tried to reboot... same problem. So I take to it back to Fry's and it boots with no problem. It has done this 3 times already, the problem is when I get home and connect it back up, I get the post screen problem again. What gives?
