So my very first post on here a while back, was me asking for help to solve an issue where my pc died, ending up regularly hanging with a black screen. The problem later progressed to booting up at the login screen, but no further, the desktop kicking me back out each time I typed my password.
Anyways, since then I'd got myself a XP Pro disc and completely reformatted my HD ( was previously XP home). For a good long while, my PC was turning like a set of well oiled gears...that was until last night.
Sitting in front of my PC, I actually witnessed the crash this time, my PC monitor blinking out and the tower rebooting itself but not actually going through the loading cycle.
Right now, I can turn the PC on, the case still doesn't boot up and the screen is still black.
Every now and again, it will show the manufacturers logo on screen but that's about it.
When I saw it die the first time a message told me that the System folder was missing and I would need to repair it.
Do any of you know what's going on?
Some help would be greatly appreciated.
