New build - not coming out of shut down or restart
I have just built a new rig, specs are:
2GB Geil PC5300
Antec 450W Smartpower PSU
It will boot up fine on first attempts, and I can get to windows installation, but whenever I restart the pc (via cntr alt del or otherwise) it will not display anything on the screen, even though there is still hard drive activity, fans spinning etc. There is also a green light on the crt.
Any ideas, I'm lost...
Update 1: Windows is installed now. But I still get the black screen on restarts. The black screen is now appearing after proper start ups (no restarts).
Update 2: When turning on, it will spin up, stop for 5 seconds, start again and give me 1 long 2 short beeps. After several attempts I can get to windows.
Update 3: Windows stops just before it loads the welcome after installing the graphics drivers. Problem with the graphics card possibly?
