If you have any questions then stop and ask... This is the equivalent of the XP repair install

so, while doing the repair, almost to the end and the screen goes black with a dash cursor in the upper left corner flashing, then nothing. i waited two hours hoping the screen would come back but it did not.

must have lost a video driver somewhere. i ended up reatarting the comp and got to the hp recovery console and did a fresh reinstall and also installed all the extra stuff i had on the machine. luckily i didn't have anything

that was important loaded on it. i will let you know how it is running tonite after i get home from work.

i also want to thank you from the bottom of my heart for all the hard work you put into helping me.
