This morning everything was just fine... I was running XP media center, and wanted to create another partition to install XP Pro on. I used partition magic 8 to move my primary partition and create another bootable partition for XPpro. In the middle of moving the partition the computer crashed. It powered down and restarted. Now I can't seem to get anything to work. I have since deleted all partitions, formatted the whole drive, and installed Windows XP pro on the only partition. This is what I get:
After the Bios boot screen, the screen goes black. No cursor, no Windows loading, no POST, no nothing. I can boot to the windows CD, but after doing so, the keyboard has been unresponsive, forcing my only action to be power down, slam head against the wall, and watch it do the same thing again... It's been a long day and I'm getting quite frustrated.
I've reseated the ram chips and processor, tried one ram chip at a time, checked all internal connections. Everything looks good. And everything was working just fine before I tried stupid partition magic. I also tried resetting the CMOS by moving the jumper from pins 1-2 to 2-3, and then back. I still get the same crap...
If anyone has ANY ADVICE, I would LOVE to hear it! Thanks in advance.
