    When I bought this system it came with Windows 98 SE and started the boot prosses automatically when the power button is pressed. After upgrading to Windows XP Home I always have to press the power on button then the reset button before it will boot. I have tried updating the BIOS, even bought a new chip. No help, still refuses to boot.

    Roger,

    Could you post the make and model of the PC so we can research it for you? Also when you upgraded did you do an Update or New Install?

    This is not a known brand of system, the mainboard is an Amptron PIII-3754-LMR. Like I said in the first post, Upgrade.

    Roger,

    You last sentence is not being very friendly. There are two option when you upgrade and install XP, which is why I asked. I recommend you check for BIOS upgrades to fix your problem, see: http://www.amptron.com/html/bios.html

    Good luck.
