    Hello --

    Upon reboot after this freeze, black screen appears, containing Safe mode
    .... "last good configuration" ... choices.

    Last good configuration choice starts the machine successfully.

    Does anyone know what might be causing the freeze?

    Thanks for any help.

  2. Watch your event log. Once start in "safe mode" and schedule a chkdsk for
    next restart. Run a harddrive test program from bootfloppy.
