Boot Problems

  1. This is a new computer that I just put together. I turn it on, it detects everything fine. Then when I try to boot anything(such as, XP installation, or any boot disk) the screen turns black and there is a blinking dash in the top left hand part of the screen. Any ideas?

    Hmm, my crystal ball says you have a mainboard, CPU & some ram somewhere in there too. Sorry, I can't make out much more then that.:rolleyes:

    Did you set the BIOS to start from CD?
