    black screen of death

    Hi everyone..
    I'm probably posting this in the wrong section...If so..I'm sorry!
    When I start my system...My motherboard logo appears, and then the Windows Professional boot screen. After that, the screen just stays black. No blue screen of death, no error message...nothing. I can start up in safe mode though through f8, but I do no tknow how to resolve my problem to allow me to boot up normally. Can anyone please help??!!

    Have you tried bringing it inside? Power issues are a major cause of those symptoms.

    Check bios settings for video output. They'ver probably gotten scrambled to TV. You may have to hook it up to either the S-Video or RCA output to see the screen.

    If it isnt the power issue, you can go into the windows recovery console and repair the boot record. requires a windows disk though
