Without actually seeing the contents of the file containing your Chapter 2,
I can only speculate.

Is there an  \end{document}  somewhere within that file,
perhaps occurring after a comment, or \endinput .
If so, try removing it, or changing the  \end  to  %end .

Maybe your document has an unclosed grouping somewhere.
Check this easily, by looking at the end of the .log file,
when run by LaTeX. Is there a message:
  `document ended at level <n>'  where <n> is a number ?
(or something similar).

Test for this also for Chapter 2 only, by finishing the job
immediately after Chapter 2 has been \input (or \include'd).

> Does anyone have any clues?

Look for the above.
Otherwise try to produce a cut-down example for testing.

> Thanks in advance,

Hope this helps,
