Dell progress bar, windows xp, windows is starting up and BIOS will flash than the screeen goes blank. Tried the following, startup disk, original windows CD still a blank screen. The computer is non-responsive when I try to reboot with Ctrl, Alt, Delete, will not pull up the task manager. Any ideas
Well I feel real dumb. I did not check the monitor. Turns out the power supply was failing. the computer was working as it should. Opened the monitor and the power supply board had a burned IC. The board was too far gone to repair. Thanks to everyone that replied.
