I built WinPe Se a couple of years ago, using Winbuilder 82.

 

The DVD booted without problems on my various PC's. =

 

Today however, on one PC, it gets to the desktop background and just 'hangs'.

 

It still boots OK on other machines, and other Boot DVD/CD's boot Ok (eg Acronis True Image, Disk Director, etc;)

Some possible reasons:

 

1st when the 'hangingPC' has never been changed and now suddenly fails, some VooDoo happened and I cannot explain or help.

2nd when the 'hanging PC' is previously running, but sowmehow fails after a change, my magic crystal ball refuses to find a solution because it has no knowledge about the change.

3nd when you added a new PC, my magic crystal ball is also not able to help, but you could help with explaining what's new.

:good: The problem has gone away!

 

I don't know why it started or why it has cured itself. I did open the case to check for loose memory, graphics card etc; because the PC was making 'beeps' - it still is occasionally beeping and I am investigating this by substituting parts.

 

Maybe poking around cured the boot problem - can't see why though as other DVD's booted OK.

 

Just one of those things I guess.

 

Thanks anyway

Hi Nedwob
Those beeps mean something...
Navigate to the Motherboard manufacturers website.
Search for Bios Post Beep Codes 'for your motherboard.'
It should explain what the series of long and/or short beeps means.
sort of like a morse code.
Happy Troubleshooting
Regards

Hi RoyM

 

Thanks for the tip - but I am well aware of the meaning of the Beeps and where to find out wht they mean - which is why I said I was substituting parts (most answers point to Graphics Card) - but the beeps are not always present, which makes diagonsing the problem difficult. The PC is basically working fine.
