please explain what the computer,s actions are. Does the power turn on all the fans run, the LEDS illuminate and the boot screens show, and then when time for windows to install the system hangs?? Really a blank screen or is there a cursor blinking in the corner.
I was running McAfee VirusScan this morning when we experienced a brief power interruption of a second or two. The computer went down and upon restart, Windows would not reload. I could only turn off the computer by removing the power cord. After doing so, the computer restarted and Windows reloaded OK.
However, I have experienced intermittent problems with Windows reloading since this event. Windows will reload OK one time but not the next. When it doesn't reload, I am stuck looking at a blank screen. Any ideas would be appreciated.
