Okay, I'm 17, and don't know all the hard core tech-terminology that most of you wise question-answerers do, but here is my problem.
So I was playing Counter Strike, exited the game.
I shut down all programs running in the background, and shut down my computer.
Now, when I come back to turn it on, it seems okay and everything.
I can still see it go through the DELL boot screen, and I can still get the prompt to press F2 and/or F12.
After that screen is done, I get a black screen with a flashing _ , like an input prompt.
I can not input anything, there are no beep codes, and DELL Customer Service has not helped one bit. (Like they ever have, ammirite?)
The screen sits like that forever, not ever changing from a flashing prompt.
The specs on it (From my memory...)
1.5 GB RAM
2.5 GHz processor
Video is Chipset
As is audio
All my cables are plugged in, and i have not done anything for fear of damage. (I don't think I would, I've build computers before and know my way around the inside of one a fair bit.)
Any help would be appreciated.
EDIT: It's actually an OptiPlex GX260, but that probably doesn't change much...
I just went into the setup menu and checked the POST Logs....
Looks like there was a POST Error...
All it says is "Keyboard Error" for all the day's I've tried booting it up...
But... How can that be? My F2 and F12 certainly work... Could it be... something else?
