I was using my computer to watch a movie and then turned it off and when I turned it back on it will only boot to a black screen with a blinking cursor.
The only two options I have is to boot to BIOS (f2) of to Boot Menu (f12)
I have checked the BIOS and it seems fine
I have booted from the windows cd and tried a windows repair
I have booted from the windows cd and went into dos threw the repair option using recovery console and have tried chkdsk /r, fixmbr, and fixboot
Nothing has worked!
Every now and then when I try to boot up the black screen has a bunch of random letters and characters and beeps but does not do anything
I have taken out the hard drive and tried my old 40GB one and it works fine
I have taken out the hard drive and hooked it up to my desktop thru a usb port and I can access all the files
If you have any suggestions on how to get this to work please let me know
