I have an HP s3401f slimline pc. The machine will not boot at all. I've tried everything I can possible think of, and I am truly stumped. All hardware tests fine by the way. Memory, hard drive, etc.
When the pc is turned on, a blinking cursor will display. Eventually you will see "BOOTMGR is corrupt. The system cannot boot."
I have tried the vista recovery disc and actual vista disc to no avail. When it says "press any key to boot from disc" I push a key and the screen never changes from that. I've tried formatting the driver in another machine, and i've tried using a new hard drive altogether. NOTHING works.
Any advice would be outstanding. Please help!
