    Yes, a new hardware problem...
    And stall is the right word. When I turn the machine on, the drives just start, but then everything stops...period. There is no electrical.

    On this system, there is a main power switch, and then a start switch. I have to turn of the main power switch and again when I hit the start switch, it stalls again, shutting down after 1-2 seconds. Should it eventually start, it runs fine.

    I am thinking
    A) Power supply?
    B) Hard drive? If the hard drive is stuck, is there some shut off protection?

    Any ideas as to what this might be wouild be appreciated.

    Thanks again,
