I have a V/A Mainboard computer that I was installing Windows 2000 on and the power in my apartment went off. I tried to restart on the Windows 2000 CD-ROM, but I had no luck. I then went into DOS and formatted the hard drive. Upon restarting the computer, all I get is a blinking gray cursor in the upper left hand corner of the screen. I tinkered with the BIOS boot order and some other stuff, still the same thing, and even made a 98 boot disk with the BIOS set back to default. I still have a blinking gray cursor in the upper left hand corner of the screeen.

try clearing your cmos


unplug you power supply from wall electrical outlet ~~very important step

then remove the cmos battery for 30 minutes (small shiny round watch like battery on mobo)

then restore the above two steps

if you can go into bios / select restore defaults then save & exit changes

then shoot for a boot up

let us know how you progress


regards

joe
