Sooo, I opened up my case after my computer ended up with a black screen with a marquee i think "_" just blinking and then it gets hung up there. took everything out, cleaned it all cause it was a monster dust farm and pending on putting it back together at the moment. You guys think that the overheating is the problem? The case usually runs pretty hott but has never legitimatly overheated so I dont quite know if thats the problem. Any input?

Black Screen (fixmbr) - http://support.microsoft.com/?scid=kb;en-us;314503

If the cursor is up in the left hand corner, repeatedly blinking...then maybe running the fixmbr command from the Recovery Console...will overcome it.
