Hi everyone. I just built myself my own computer. 1Tb HD, 8GB ram, dual core processor, MSI 970A-G43 Mobo are the basic specs (anymore you want to know just ask). Anyway loaded on windows xp cause thats all i thought we had in the house and it was running smoothly and wonderful. Then at great delight I discovered we had Vista 32 bit also, loaded it on and then went to have dinner and let it install itself while i ate. when i came back the screen was just black. I couldnt get anything out of it so decided to restart the machine. Now the computer runs and everything but all i get is a black screen no cursor and i cant even access the bios screen as it just says 'entering setup' for a very long time?!?! ive tried an old screen cable and a HDMI and both give the same output. HELP!

 wipe the drive with this tool and reinstall


or you could try replacing ram with 4gig see if it will boot up


8gig ram not an advantage unles you have 64bit system disk


also make sure you have the drivers disk for  the mother board
