|System will not boot from HD nor CD but does power up and ask for password. when type in password, the system responded with usual grinding like noise which usually followed with window booting, but now it is just a black screen. When try to boot from CD, it again responded with the grinding noise but only displayed: type any key to start booting. When type a key, nothing happens. I have left the system idle and connected to Internet too long (System shows 23 hours when went into system set up to check. Can anyone suggest what is the problem? Dying HD? Virus? Or BIOS Issue? Any help is greatly appreciated.|
The computer is quite old but the files on HD are important.
