Here are the specs beforehand:
- ECS K7SEM motherboard
- AMD Duron 900MHz
- 2x 256MB PC133 SDRAM
- The Best Power MT-500P 500W PSU
- Integrated graphics
- No hard drive
- DVD-ROM - will update with brand & model
Now, I was starting up this machine after it was left outside for 3 months in winter weather. (I got this from a friend.) I was able to get it started and tried to load Ubuntu from the DVD-ROM. It was fairly successful and got up to the point when the Ubuntu logo is glowing. However, when Ubuntu was about to go to the main screen, the computer crashed and automatically rebooted.
Is there any reason why this is happening?
Also, I should mention that when I try to hit Delete on the BIOS screen to go to Setup, it only shows a screen with four lines saying something Novell something... I will edit with exact lines.
Should I be resetting the BIOS or something?
Thanks in advance.
