Hey all, hows it really going? Just happened onto this forum looking for help with this notebook I built from garbaged ones. The problem I am having is that every now and then it will not boot. Usually it will hang on the bios before doing a mem scan. I can shut it down and try again, I can pull the battery and try it and I can pull the plug and try it. Once in a while with the power unplugged I can hold down F1 and power it up and it will go into windows. Other times it won't but if I am persistant it boots. I have tried everything short of flashing the bios. Any ideas out there what might be the problem????

A short in the DC-DC board mebbe? Have you checked the IBM website for the HMM? They're pretty good about posting such things for download.
