My wife and daughter accidentally deleted my windows 8.1 partition along with all restore points on my hard drive. So after a long time with help from a mod on this website, it was decided a factory reset was in order. I did the factory reset, i loaded windows 8, I went ahead removing factory installed mcafee, when it came time to restart i did so. On the immediate boot up my system will not load. The screen goes between flashing light and dark black. Any ideas of what this could be? I am able to get into the BiOS screen but do not know what to select.

I have a Dell Inspiron 660 moved into a after market case. the entire system was working smooth until this all happened with the windows 8.1 being deleted. I just bought this system 6 months ago and am really hoping I dont have to buy a new one. any help is most appreciated.

Hi,

Have you tried booting from the install disk and doing a startup repair?

Thanks

I figured it out, My old VC was bad, I didnt have cables plugged in to it. I was running off of the integrated card but the MB was trying to display off of the bad VC. Pulled it out and everything worked fine. I appreciate the help
