After I start my computer it gets to the packard bell startup screen, but after that it beeps once and comes up with a black screen with nothing but a flashing underscore at the top left of the screen.
If I press ctrl+alt+del it goes back to the packard bell screen.
At this screen I can either press f2 for bios or f8 to boot device.
I am using XP.
What can I do?
