Been lurking for answers - no luck yet. Bought a new computer - tried to boot, got a boot logo (win xp) then a black screen. Tried loading suse 10.0 - died after kernel loaded (black screen). Tried loading win xp, loaded relevant raid drivers (sil. img. 3112) then got frozen on a blue setup screen. Messed about with the bios, 'failsafe' settings didn't work, neither did anything else I tried (literally spent hours changing settings). Figured it may be a hd prob (never worked with SATA before) so installed an IDE hd from my other machine & made appropriate changes in bios - when I started the machine, I got grub (boot loader), but a blank screen when I tried to boot the OS (suse 9.3) that was already on that hd. To be honest, I'm pretty clueless when it comes to hardware & I'm out of ideas. The mobo is an ati/eqs with rs400 chipset The two hd's that came with the comp are Seagate 250gig SATA The hd I tried from another machine is a Maxtor 160gig IDE Processor: Athlon 64 x2 Graphics: ati onboard radeon express Ram: 2gig, Corsair Any ideas?
