If you can select safe mode, what is the last file name to show before it hangs?

I found a little information on this website:

http://ask-leo.com/my_computer_locks_up_and_wont_boot_w...

I found this within the website that might help you:

If your computer doesn't even get so far as to try the hard disk, or perhaps not even print anything on the screen, you probably do have some type of hardware problem. For example, if the computer simply beeps a few times and then does nothing, then that's the POST telling you something is wrong. For what ever reason it might not be able to display an error message, so it simply beeps in a pattern to tell you what it's found. They vary based on the brand of your computer or BIOS, but POST beep codes can often give a technician a quick idea of exactly what might be wrong.

If I was you I would un-plug everything from the motherboard except the power/power switch and CPU that is required to turn the motherboard on and listen for the beep codes then go to this website and work through each set of codes until you find the problem at hand: http://www.computerhope.com/beep.htm

Your suppose to install the (OS) Operating System on the original hardware, but if you can't even get that far there is something seriously wrong.

the reason why i re install the win xp in onother pc is i cant even boot to my cdrom or even in my usb wich i tested good in other pc so io bring my hard disk to my friends pc to re format ant to re install win xp. as i said the whole proces goes fine i can used that hard disk in my friends pc but when i put it in my own pc(which is failing) its not booting. haist!

I found this information:

"Could be the power supply isn't good enough to get everything going. Cold
boots are the most demanding because all your hardware gets started up and
readied for use. K7S5A is very picky about lots of quality power. Also,
using 2 sticks of SDRAM can cause problems. Try using one stick or switch to
DDR. If he's using a generic 300W or less power supply, that's likely the
problem."

"I had this same problem today actually. But it was resolved fairly
quick. If you have any extra USB on your Motherboard, unplug them from
the motherboard. If they are plugged in wrong, it will halt on that
same spot."

"Another thing to try is to remove all the IDE cables and try to reboot.
If it now doesn't show the NVRAM problem , shut down and connect up each device , one at a time and try booting up after each one.
You may find that it now works with all devices or that one device (or its connector or cable) causes the problem.

Perhaps just try removing and reseating all IDE cable connections first."

Not sure if this will help, but the K7S5A was infamous for NOT booting if you set the HDD to master or slave when you had a single drive. I've built quite a few of these back in the day and it bit me almost every time. If you have a single HD, set it to Cable Select and see if that doesn't solve the issue. The board is old enough that it won't boot to external devices (USB sticks, etc...) so that won't be the issue.

I keep seeing comments about this exact code and it says malware/trojans/virus. I'm sorry I can't find a exact solution for you. Still looking though.

1. Start the computer with the Windows CD in your drive and boot to disc.

2. At the Welcome to Setup screen, press R to select the system repair option.

3. Enter the Administrator password (if you have one).

4. In the recovery console go to the C:\Windows\System32\Drivers directory with the following command:

CD C:\Windows\System32\Drivers

5.Now rename DEEPFRZ.SYS to DEEPFRZ_SYS.old with the following command:

rename DEEPFRZ.SYS DEEPFRZ_SYS.old

6.Type Exit and press ENTER

7.Take the Windows disc out and reboot.

This should solve your problem :]
