I'm on my brother's laptop at the moment. my desktop experienced a moment of complete failure. i was on my computer, and i popped in a cd to update my video drivers, and then rebooted. upon reboot, the computer started getting pissy. it would show the dell boot screen, then it switched to a completely blank screen with nothing but a blinking cursor. i tried hitting a few function buttons, but it only beeped backed at me when i pushed a button. i sat and waited hoping it would finally load windows and boot to my desktop. no such luck. it simply refuses to boot windows xp. i don't think it's a hardware problem. all of my stuff was working fine up until that restart. but i can't think of what's wrong. if this computer dies on me, i'm screwed for like 4 months. i have to buy my own computer, so if this dies, its game over. and i don't feel like having to reformat again. its the one solution i know will work, but this happened once before and i want to figure this out once and for all. what the hell could be wrong?
