Default Can't Reboot, Can Shutdown? - 01-09-2009, 11:48 PM

For some reason anytime I try to restart/reboot in XP my system freezes and I have to hold down the power button to shutdown. I thought maybe it was because I installed from a custom/nlited xp disc but I just tried an original un-modified one and it still does it!

I am installing from a USB DVD-Rom drive, so again, the XP CD is not being modified or changed in any way.

It freezes both during install when XP tried to reboot and later in XP itself anytime I manually do it. Why is this happening? Everything else works ok, even shutdown.

Mini 9, 2GB Ram, XP Pro SP3, A03 Bios
