My pc goes to the windows page then goes black. Will it go that far if hdd is dead? It won't go in any of the safe modes. i blew out the dust and reseated the agp card and still nothing. Any kind of info is appreciated, maybe I'm not even posting in the the correct board. Thanks in advance. I didn't have time to search the site tonight to see if this is some where else and I apologize for imposing on your time if this a dumb question.
