  1. Hi guys,

    I seem to be getting a blank screen with a cursor after the windows splash screen. This happened after I tried to going through the upgrade recovery process which went ok except for a 3 dlls not being copied from the cd i think they were


    after the computer restarted it went to the through to the windows installation process, then I stepped on the power cord and the computer shut down, after restarting it didn't continue from where it left off. I re-ran the recovery process and after the splash screen it went blank with a cursor. Just cant get past it. I installed a new hard drive with a fresh install of XP all the hardware is fine.

    Any ideas of how I can get my old XP up again or continue the installation?have tried fixmbr, fixboot and bootcf.

    all help would be appreciated. thanks
