I have a HP Media Centre PC (7299a) and have had nothing but problems since the day i brought it about 2 years ago maybe even less. The lastest problem I have is when I turn the computer on the fans sound like they are going to take off, they arent rumbling but more like running very fast. I get a black screen so it doesn't even show the XP startup screen just nothing. About 2 days prior to this happening I was able to boot into windows but only for approx 10 mins or so, the screen became jumpy and flickered, I had to turn it off, but now I cant even start in safe mode get into the bios nothing i dont have the options. I have also tried putting the recovery CD in the drive and turning off and then back on but it wont even do anything either.
I know it's not the monitor because I have tried it with my laptop and it works fine.
But this is my last point of call before it is made to walk the plank and pushed to to the ground below!!
Like I said its a HP media centre
running (or was running) XP Media Centre Addition 2002 SP2
Any Hints suggestions??????????????
