Hello, I'm having an issue. I have an older gateway computer, Pentium 4, 40gb hdd, 2 cd drives, I think 256 ram, If i need to find out more details, I can. it came with factory installed windows xp. It was working fine in Windows. I took out the hard drive and formatted it to fat32, used it as an external harddrive for a little while, no OS installed. I wanted to install kubuntu on the box, so i hooked up the hdd again, and started installing from cd. I got through the install process until I reached the partitioning stage. I chose to delete the disk, at this point it froze, or failed, i can't remember exactly. but i had to abort. Now I tried to startover, but the computer wouldn't boot. Instead of the power light showing green, it would show orange. Everything would turn on, the hdd, the cd drives, the fans, the keyboard, but not the mouse and no output to the screen. I tried to boot from a knoppix live cd, but this didn't do anything. I'm assuming that something happened to the bios, so i tried to flash the cmos, i took out the battery and left it out for 24 hours, when i put it back in and turned on, the power light now turns green instead of orange, but still no output to monitor. I am out of ideas. I haven't done anything to the computer but take out and reinsert the hard drive. Any tips would be extremely appreciated.
