I was working on my computer, started My Pictures Slideshow as screensaver. I left the computer, came back a few hours later to a black screen with a white cursor in the top left corner. I hit CRTL/ALT/DEL, the computer attempted to restart. I got the HP logo, with the following options: esc to change boot order, F10 to enter setup, F12 to boot from LAN. Then the screen goes back to the black with cursor deal!

I have gone into BIOS setup, but I don't know what to do with all that!! I went to boot order options and moved the CD Drive to the top of the list, hoping to boot from my XP CD. No Change, didn't boot from CD.

Please help!!
