I have a compaq terminal that you'd see at a company work station. It has no cd rom drive. I reformated the hard drive and reinstalled windows in and completely whipping everything from it. Everything was going find until I transfered the computer to my father house. Then something wierd happen.

He'd turn it on, then the compaq logo would show, and then the whole screen would go black accept for the blinking typing underline thing on the top right and it'd just sit there.

I tried other hard drives to the same affect. I repaired the installation to the same affect.

Does anyone have a solution for me?



Thanks.

Just to clarify things: was this machine working as a 'stand alone' unit prior to the installation of windows that you did? If it was, and the new installation had been running ok, it sounds as if something may have shaken lose during the transportation. Have you checked all cables and hardware for secure seating?

Do you have any unusual beeps?
