Anyway, I start it up, the Albatron (motherboard manufacturer) logo shows up, then when it's supposed to load Windows XP, it just shows a black screen. It looks kind of like a DOS prompt but without the prompt. Just a completely black screen, no error messages, with the little blinking underscore. I can't type anything either.
I tried setting the BIOS to boot from CD and inserted the Windows XP CD, but to no avail, the same black screen. BIOS detects my hard drive, I checked all the cables in my computer and made sure they were plugged in correctly.
I've never had to deal with something like this. There's no clearcut symptoms as to what it could be.
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!
