I am asking these questions so that we can ascertain whether these are hardware issues.
Hi bingoUV, thanks for the reply.
1. No, it only happens at that stage and doesn't happen every time I start my computer (happens roughly every 5 times or something).
2. Yes, the computer has had a few operating systems installed prior to Fedora 8. I started with Windows XP, then an earlier release of Fedora (5 or 6), then Ubuntu (not sure what release), Fedora 7 and Mandriva from a DVD I got with a magazine. I think I could probably install another operating system but would prefer not to as I am very happy with Fedora 8 in general.
Thanks very much for your help.
