I have a Gateway unit intel(pentium R) D cpu 2.80 GHz
2 gig ram
OS is XP home.
I had some problems reformating a few weeks ago after a virus,I
gave the computer to a friend to do the job.
For what ever reason he installed a bootleg OS.
I decided no big deal I will use my disc and reinstall a legal copy with ligit
At the first restart, windows splash screen came up with the option
for bios or boot order,then went to black screen with flashing curser in lower left.
I can not get into safe mode,I did check the boot order,it is correct.
I am lost at this point.
This is the exact problem I was having when I sent it out for repair.
All help appreciated.
