Can you get into the setup utility? If yes its a O/S problem.
Did you really reformat the HDD? If you did how? If you did then you probably erased the O/S and will need to re-install it.
If no to getting in the setup utility, its either hanging up because of a piece of required hardware malfunctioning (Video, Keyboard, mouse) or something more serious at the motherboard or power supply level.
I have a gateway pc that starts up just fine but stalls at a black screen. No windows logo, no log in screen. I am able to get into bios though..
1. resetting the cmos by taking out the battery
2. reformatting the hdd
3. using a graphics card as opposed to the integrated
4. replacing ram
When i turn on the pc i get all post beeps and fans start right up. hdd works with different mobo. Havent tried using a different psu.
Can someone please help me? What could it be, or what can i do?
