Hello,

I recently experienced a serious problem, in which my PC
would not boot when I powered it up, no beeps or display
or anything, just a black screen. I got around this by
replacing my AGP graphics card with a PCI one. However,
now, when I load windows, the computer just hangs at the
welcome scrren. Even in safe mode it only works for a
bit, then just hangs. I've tried everything I can think
of (including reinstalling windows) but nothing works.
Does anyone have any ideas?

My system is:
P4 2.8c
Abit IC7-G motherboard
512 Ram
120GB SATA HD

Thanks!

Matthew Walker
