    If it gets stuck during POST, then that has absolutely nothing to do with the OS or any software that is installed on it. (Since POST occurs before any OS is attempted to be loaded)

    If, however, you mean that it's getting stuck during startup, you probably need to do a repair install of the OS. This should force a hardware redetection.

    For other options, see http://www.windowsreinstall.com/install/other/motherboard/win2k.htm

    sorry i meant right after POST. it seems like its going to go (hard drive starts spinning) and then the screen goes blank as if someone just hit the reset button.

    I figured as much, but I just wanted to be sure.

    Check the URL I posted above for possible solutions.
