I know some about computers but have never come across this problem before. I can't seem to install any OS above Windows 98 SE. I get past all the first initial parts but when it gets to the "intstalling Windows XP" or "Windows 2000" (I have tried both) it just stays like that. I have tried to upgrade and it goes through all the initial first stages but when it reboots and gets to the windows in now installing prompt it goes to a black screen and does nothing else. I had an error message quite some time ago about the NTFS file system but have not had it since and can not figure this one out. There was some debate as to some blame going on the video card I was using at the time but I no longer have it and have long since forgotten the name. Any help would greatly be appreciated seeming I am completely ignorant on this one.
