win xp doesn't load
I added a floppy drive to my computer, it goes through bios fine and win xp loads with the little orange thing going across the screen, but then dies with a black screen though the power is still on.
this isn't the monitor because ive tried it with two different ones. i enabled the drive in bios, and also i disconnected the floppy drive and the same thing keeps happening even though i should be back where i started!
i dont see how i could have damaged anything through esd or otherwise when i was installing the drive it was very straightforward. i posted this is the hardware area but no luck.
anyway, thanks for any suggestions!!!
