This started after I installed Roxio 9 XE. I have the disc and installled it on my computer, well my dad's. The installation completed and asked for a restart. So I said yes and the computer restarted. However, once it restarted Windows was having issues. I could only access My Computer, Control Panel, Explorer and MScofig. Most of the other windows services were "unavailable". The start up was 5 minutes because "install.exe" was using 99 of the cpu for that time. So I decided to restore the computer to factory settings. I tried to and it froze when it was 100%, well that's what the progress gauge said. So I turned it off and back on.
That's what I have done and it created this problem. At this time, there's nothing of the monitor and the keyboard isn't work. I can leave my computer on all day and there will still be nothing on the monitor. The power works, because the computer makes noise but the light for the on/off switch isn't on. I've tried using the recovery discs included but it doesn't work... The BIOS is set to boot from the disc, then a memory card, then the hd.
Graphics Card:256MB X700 Ati
Test so far(works)
I hope I can fix this computer. I really don't want to buy another one....
