This is my first post, so I thought I should let you all know -
I am somewhat of a newbie when it comes to this type of thing so keeping the technical jargon to a minimal would be appreciated! =)
Okay, now to the problem. Recently, I got this message upon starting up - GRUB hard disk error. After reading around on various forums, I managed to fix this, probably by using the recovery console and the fixmbr command; only to lead on to a different type of problem.
Now, the PC only manages to boot up as far as a black screen. It won't get as far as the Windows Xp welcome screen, just this annoying black screen. I have tried using a few things now, fixmbr, fixboot, repairing the OS and chkdsk.
