I have a dell dimension 8400 with Intel Pentium 4 CPU 3.00GHz, and when I tried to install the Intel Active Monitor to check cpu temperature (since speedfan was not showing it), I got the above symptoms and now can't do anything with the computer at all. I created a restore point before the installation, but I can't even get the system to boot.
edit: Sorry for the double post about the same problem. Turns out it was most likely coincidence that the installation was starting as the problem occurred.
