I have had this problem before when I was running Vista. I have a HP Media Center computer and put in a new SSD 120G Hard drive and Windows 7. The D Drive is where the data is stored and is also a new hard drive (not SSD) but not put in at the same time. This morning computer was unresponsive so I turned it off and turned it back on. The HP Invent screen comes up followed by the Intel info at the top, then a blinking cursor. The screen is black. I can hear the hard drive spinning or maybe it is computer noise, and then goes silent. The cursor moves down on the left hand side about 2 inches and continues to blink at me. I did have the problem before when I was running Vista on this computer and a regular C drive but given enough time it would start to boot. But this time it looks like it is not going to boot.
Do I need a new mother board or a new computer? I read in one of the threads about running chkdsk but am scared to try that. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. I am not a techie person and scared of computers but willing to try some good advice.
Problem has been solved and my computer is up and running.
