I startup the computer but it never gets to the CTRL+ALT+DEL screen. I get a black screen. I believe that there is something wrong with my hard drive and/or hibernatoin function. Each time I start it up it seems to startup out of hibernation mode. It goes to Resuming Windows and then a black screen. Any suggestions?
I wouldn't think that the problem is due to your hard drive since your system won't boot from a bootable CD. More likely it is a RAM problem. You can check it out with Memtest86+. It comes in a CD image ISO file that can be burned using Roxio, Nero or the free CDBurnerXP.
