real problem here, it flashes up the first couple of black screens and then cycles the power and does it all again! if i change the bios to boot from cd and put in the xp disk it loads all of the drivers from the cd-rom and when it gets to the 'starting windows' title(still on a blank, blue sreen) it just sits there.
it won't start up in safe mode or last known working configuration
it wont start up even if i swap the hdd with a known working one, it does exactly the same thing.
it became like this after hanging on the shutdown screen so i pushed the reset button on the case and then this started
it's an amd 64 3000 with 512mb ddr400, 200gb sata hdd, radeon 9600 256mb graphics, pioneer 4x dvd-rw, xp pro
dont know what to do next
cant afford an expensive rebuild
