    I can get to the "Testing Mode Menu" by pressing ESC before it hangs.
    All tests pass:

    Numeric Coprocessor: Passed.
    Protected Mode Test: Passed.
    Low Memory Test: Passed.
    Extended Memory Test: Passed.

    But if I continue the boot process, it hangs at the same place as
    before.

  3. i've a few 506e with the same problem, try the following

    open the pix, in the middle of the mainboard there is a jumper, set it to
    the other position, and boot it again

    please let me know if it solves your problem!



    p.s.anybody know's where the switch is???


    kind regard

    It worked!

    Wow dude... how did you know that?

    I had a PIX with the same problem and I had the case open trying to blow off the dust off of the heatsink, thinking it might be an overheating issue.

    But I came across your post and did what you said... presto!

    Thanks for sharing!

    The solution worked for me also

    I experineced the same problem after a power outage.

    Toggling the jumper settings resolved my probelm.

    I wish I figure out what the magic jumper is suppose to do.

    Still works

    This worked great. I signed up just to say thanks. I found this solution via google search and appreciated it. So thanks for the help. Maybe one day someone will post what that jumper does. :)
