My computer Hangs on Start up can't reformat it freezes before finishing the loading of drivers and etc.. It freezes also during start up and also in the welcome screen... I can't go to safe mode either it hangs also there before it goes to it's screen.. I already tried the overheating theory and buy myself a new heat sink and a fan but to no avail.. My guess is it wasn't the processor that was overheating it is the on board video when I touched it. Do you guys have a solution for this? That might worked or that really work.. I install a new 333mhz ram 2 of it 512mb.. But then I found out immediately that it wasn't compatible because my AMD Athlon processor have only a bus frequency limit of 266 so I change it back before 24 hrs.. since that this freeze thing keeps on happening. SO do I need to overclock this or something? Even thou I change it back the way they are.. I need a quick solution for this freeze or hang thing it's annoying..

Please list your system specs, including the power supply rails. You can use a cd bootdisk from your hardrive manufacturer or create one by downloading the file and burning a cd. It will find and format your hardrive when other programs don't. Check your hardrive cables carefully to be sure one isn't loose. If your drive still won't complete a format, then it probably is bad and needs replacing. Also try your ram one stick at a time in case one is bad. And your ram frequency is independent of your cpu; check your board specs on it's website. It may work fine with 333 ram. If your ram is high latency (cheap no name quality) then I would suspect this is the problem. Any name brand ram (crucial, micron, corsair, samsung, kingston) should work fine.

Ans: Check the capacitor of your motherboard.
