Following on my my Roxio problem,
www.mytechsupport.ca/component/option,com_forums/Itemid,42/topic,11351.0

I decided to go to the Microsoft site and download all the necessary updates etc.  After doing that I was prompted to restart which I did and now the computer does not boot up it hangs and reboots.  After I turned the main switch off and restarted I got the Advanced set up utility saying

During the last boot-up your system hung for improper frequency combination...

I didn't change anything.

Please can yo help

Are you overclocking your CPU?
Reboot, check in your BIOS if your CPU timings are still correct.

Hi Ageless

I've not over clocked my PC

What the BIOS was set at is

CPU speed - 1600MHz
CPU freq Multiple - 12.0x
CPU/PCI freq - 133/33
CPU/Memory Freq Ratio - 1:1

I have an Athlon XP 1900+ CPU, 1024 MB Ram and am running Windows 2000

OK, the full error message seems to be:

During the last boot up your system hung for improper frequency combination,make sure the frequency combination conforms to the spec of your CPU,DIMM and other connected devices.

I've looked a bit around the web and seen that in most cases it is the videocard that is causing this. (Weirdly enough in all the cases I looked at, it was an Ati card doing this). Do you have another videocard to test with?

One person I saw managed to get his PC working again after he'd rebooted and rebooted and rebooted. On the third try it worked.

So I can't help you any further. You can try to take out your video card and reseat it.
Or leave that PC off for a day and try again. I don't know, maybe it's a specific gravitational beam underneath your house that's doing this. Wink

PCs are finicky creatures.
