After returning from my 10 day vacation :-cool My computer has been having major issues. Upon leaving, I unplugged the system and made sure everything was off and whatnot. Then, when I got home, plugged everything in again, ect...I turned on the system. The system did its POST (Power on self test) and it gave me the single beep which meant everything was in order. Then, after the test (where windows should begin loading) I was given a message...I can't remember exactly but it was asking for a system disk. Wierd...never happened before. I reset the BIOS to default settings and tried it a couple more times every 5 minutes or so. After the 5th or 6th time, the computer didn't even turn on...NOT GOOD. I switched off the power supply and let it sit there overnight. Next morning I powered on and it started (thank god). Then after the POST, i just get a blinking underscore ( _ ) and it stays that way...windows never boots. Can anyone enlighten me? After an hour and a half on the phone trying to speak with an ASUS represenative, I gave up.
Asus A7V333 Motherboard
512 PC 2100 Crucial DDR
PNY GF4 ti4200 64 mb.
Quantum Fireball 60 GB HD
Any help would be greatly appreciated!
