|Well, I got ahold of this compaq desktop, and ive had it for awhile. Booted it before and ran it before, but didnt use it much sense i have a laptop thats like wayy better. |
But i wanted to use this computer for some random things that i didnt wanna run throught my laptop, and i went to go boot it the other day.
This is my problem, Im pretty sure the HD is empty and formatted from the last time it was turned off. So, i planned on running a win XP on it to get it up and going again.
When i boot, i get the compaq screen, and it shows the ram, cpu, ect ect loading up, then it goes on from that screen and just turns black.
I have a boot disk for Win XP in the CD rom, and i feel it spinning and then it stops, but it seems its not picking it up.
And this Compaq doesnt have a selection in the boot menu to boot from disk, So im sorta stumped on what to do here.
It is detecting the cd-rom drive, and the HD, but just doesnt wanna load up.
Any help would be appreciated.
