Default System hangs on restart. [IBM; Netvista 6578; win98SE]

Windows 98 SE, latest Bios flash using setup defaults.

System hangs when Start-->Shutdown-->Restart is used. It will go to a blank screen with a flashing cursor in upper corner and that's it.

Ctrl + Alt + Del does nothing and the only way to boot up again is to use the power switch and switch off and on.

It hasn't always done this, and I'm convinced it's something to do with Bios settings.

I've tried using and disabling APM in the Bios as well as using Setup defaults to no avail.

Any suggestions would be welcome and TIA.
