I rebooted my computer yesterday and when it restarted I got a black screen after the windows xp loading screen. At first I was able to boot in safe mode so I did a system recovery and I got the message after the reboot saying it could not be performed. I rebooted my computer again and this time I couldnt even get into safe mode. It froze after the safe mode loading screen. So I shut down the computer and unplugged everything from the motherboard. I plugged everything back in and still black screen. I reset the CMOS, nothing. Today I took out the hard drives and plugged them back in and thought Id try taking out one of the sticks of ram to see if one of them was defective, now Im getting a "disk boot failure", i put the stick back in and got the same message again. Im at the end of my rope with this thing.

My computer is custom built with an ASUS motherboard, 2 IDE hard drives connected to the motherboard by serial ATA. 2gb ram.

My hard drives are on a RAID system. "Array 1: 2+0: functional"
