I recently put together a barebones Shuttle PC. All of the components are installed and I managed to get everything configured with Windows XP Pro SP2. And adjusted an I/O error issue that I had with my DVDRW drive.

However, there's been this lingering problem that originated way before I installed the OS. When I start the computer from a cold boot up, the BIOS display is stuck at POST. I am speculating that I need to make some adjustments to the CMOS in order for the computer to reach a normal boot sequence, but I don't know what to change. The following is what is visible on the screen.
I originally had 1GB of DRAM for installing the OS, but later added RAM that was originally not compatible with the OS installation. But the OS does recognize the memory boost.

I ran memtest-86 and there were no memory errors.

Does it matter if this text is in bright white?
"DDR2 667 Single Channel, 64-bit"
