ok well i reinstalled the OS and like an idiot I forgot the mobo doesn't have an onboard video card
but i'm gonna try to put the HD in another computer and install all the drivers and see if that helps. I was also wondering if you could help me with another problem. My USB mouses and keyboards don't seem to be able to work. The mobo I have seems to only have one PS/2 slot. the coloring for it is purple and green but i was wondering if there was some way to plug in two PS/2 devices.
