Then goes to a black screen with curser. Nothing can be done on that screen.
F8 to Safe Mode is NOT an option. It will not allow. I have reset the RAM, no change.
I have ran the XP Reinstall software for Recovery. That takes me to a C:\Windows prompt in a DOS screen. I can CD C: and see all the files. Did a CHKDSK /r and everything was fine.
I ran the Reinstall to Repair the current install. Goes through the whole Windows install process with the 100% progress bar and then restarts. STILL goes to black screen.
I then ran a complete reinstall of Windows. Same outcome.
I pulled the hard drive and can open all the files using it as an external drive. So it seems to be OK.
What must I do to boot up???
