It use to boot up, and give me video, and post up and everything..

It never had windows installed, the hdd was from another compy with windows 98.. and i was trying to boot up this one, and go into bios to start up the windows xp disk.. and when i pressed f8 to go to bios, it just cut the video off, then it turned off...

And ive tried 2 differnet sticks.. in both slots.. and ive tried a differnt video card.. and im not getting anything.. its very irritating..

Im not sure what computer your using, but F8 normally takes you to advanced boot options, not the BIOS. BIOS is normally either F1, F2, F12, Delete key.

Are you sure, even though i cant see any video, and i dont get a beep.. or anything...

so if i hold and press delete at start up it will go into bios?

cuz it doenst show me video or anything...

I think when i pressed F8 it might have booted from the floppy.. and i dont have a floppy...
