Does DOS boot successfully?
Please help me i am computer literate but in this case utterly helpless!
The problem is that the monitor blacks out in the boot sequence
1. booting normally with win xp after the first 2 screens - the one with memory count and IDE detection and the one after that with "verifiyng DMI pool data" and "boot from cd" - the monitor goes black , cntrl + alt + del doesn't work gotta reset manually
2. if running safe mode (win xp) - the first say 7 path names show on screen as safe mode loads and the computer hangs again warm boot doesn't help
3. booting off the linux mandrake 10 dvd after i press enter when it says install/upgrade the monitor goes black and same as above
I've tested my graphics card on another pc and its fine, so is my HDD
