Hello. I am experiencing a problem with my desktop, where it will not start up fully. This occurred directly after I updated to Adobe 8. "something". I was prompted to restart the computer, so I did. During shutdown, an error box appeared for a brief second, but before I could read it, it dissappeared and the computer finished shuting down. Upon restarting, it would not go past the very first screen, where it tells me how much ram has been found, "Push <F2> to go to setup" on the bottom, etc. My computer will not boot up past this screen. It just sits there. The lights on the keyboard never flash. I am running XP, and I meet all of the system requirements for it. Thanks for bearing with me. If I can provide more information, please let me know.
