I figured something went really wrong, so I held the power button down until it forced a shut down.
I left my computer alone for five minutes or so, in case it was an issue with heat (but I doubted it was). When I went back and turned my computer on, I got nothing but a black screen and a single white dash in the corner.
I have a copy of SpinRite, but I am not sure if it is harddrive failure or something else. I was wondering if anyone has a good idea what it might be, and what I will need to do to fix it.
Windows XP SP2 (Home)
Intel Core2 Duo 3.14ghz
ATI Radeon x1600 pro
2x 512 DDR2 Ram (Kingston)
500GB SATA2 HD
I am nearly positive my computer is free of malware\greyware, but that still is a possibility
Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.
