Help. My son's computer is giving me no small amount of grief today. The system would not boot, said OS is missing and went to "Start Recovery". We allowed it to do this repair/recovery twice and system seemed to start again, but all that we have is the mouse arrow on a blank screen. I had to reset the hard drive to 1st boot device in the bios. System rebooted, but still blank screen with mouse pointer. Any thoughts?
Google the hot key to get into the BIOS for your PC. See if the video works in the BIOS. If so you have driver / operating system problems. If the video does not work in BIOS then you have possible MB, possible video card, possible bios settings problems, possible PSU problem, etc.. Post more details after you try to get into BIOS.
Thanks, we will work on it tonight. We did see a box asking for system drivers, we put the system cd-rom in but it did not do anything. Funny thing is we are about to build him a new system. The old one is nearly 6 years old and was fine for a pre-teen, not so good for a teenager. We may not worry about it, we will pull the hard drive to get at his school work.
