Computer wont boot up

  1. OK heres my problem...

    When i turn on my computer, it comes up with the usual motherboard welcome screen... it says "Press delete to enter setup" and all that.

    However it just hangs there... And doesnt do anything. Then sometimes it eventually goes to a blank screen with a flashing line. like the Command propt. But u cant type anything.

    If i fiddle around with stuff... it usually gets working. I have a felling it might b my graphics card because its old. And once when i started up my computer it told me that the "GPU has failed and wont respond to driver calls" or something like that. But it doesnt do it anymore.

    Any idea wat could b causeing this?
    Any help will b appreciated

    The gpu warning is pointing to your video card. If you installed a different one you will probably recover the system.
