Screen stays black....
I'm using a D975XBX Intel Main Board, 2 GB of DDR2 Ram, A 512MB ATI Radeon. The last thing I was doing was making some AVI to VOB conversions and the computer slowed down EXTREMELY then turned off. Now everytime I turn it on and let it try to load windows it stays on a black screen for hours. It won't even load the OS. I tried reformating, but it won't even detect the windows CD in the DVD drive. You know that screen that goes "Press any key to run the setup"... Nope no such screen. I tried to use a Nuke disk but it won't run a floppy either. I set the bios to run DVD ROM and Floppy as primary, yet it seems to skip these steps and jumps straight into the black screen. At first I thought it might have been my LCD. Maybe the computer was running a setup that can only be viewed in 800x600... But when i switched to a regular CRT monitor, still, the infamous black screen... What could it be??
