Booting Problems can’t display Windows XP
Please help me with my startup problem. The problem is, when I turn on my computer the screen turns black. It just display MSI or board details, but it does not reach to the Operating System. A black screen will appear with a flashing cursor on the upper left corner of the screen. I already did some troubleshooting on this problem.
I already tried getting into BIOS but unfortunately it didn’t work. I already unplugged some unnecessary external devices but still don't work. I also asked some advices through online questions.
And most of them told me that my hard drive might be causing the problem. Considering those answers, I am afraid I just can’t give up just like that my hard drive. Inside that hard drive is a 120 GB of important data. Now, the worst part of it is that I couldn’t get into the Safe mode of my computer and I don’t have an installer cd of the original XP.
