So after a failed overclock my motherboard blew out. I finally got a new mobo yesterday. I built my computer back up again and everything turns on and i can actually get into bios now. Problem is after mobo boot up screen it goes to a black screen with a little white blinking dash on the left. Almost looks like a terminal. but without the typing capabilities. Anyone got any ideas what's wrong? I'm thinking the hard drives blew out also. Would it help if i boot up from the windows 7 disc? and if it does work clean install?

Probably a corrupt windows install. Minimum a repair install should fix your problem. Full install works as well if you have no data that you want saved.

i put in the install disc and just my luck... It didnt work. It just kept restarting the computer over and over again. I then tried my xp disc and it gave me an i389/ntkrnlmp error. what do you guys think. My ideas are hard drive. or could it be something else.
