Computer doesn't all

March 15, 2010 at 13:03:20
Specs: Windows XP
My computer suddenly shut itself off, and when I turn the power back on, it will beep, give the normal Windows and Pentium loading screen, and then stop on a blank screen without doing anything.
If i try and go into safe mode by pressing F8, it says please select boot device and gives me three choices, all of which do nothing. So I can't boot it up in safe mode, either. Is there anything I can do?

Remove every single usb device thats is connected to your computer, expect your mouse en keyboard ofcourse.

If you have the manual of your motherboard it will explain those pieps, if you heard it.

My guess is that its a driver problem, you probally get a blue screen of death but your computer doesnt show you that.

1- is it a laptop or desktop?
2- F8, it says please select boot device
FYI f8 does not boot to that screen. You probably pressed f2 or a different f command.

No, I really did press F8, trying to go into safe mode. It is a Vaio desktop. After pressing it it says "Please select boot device." These are the options it gives me:




And all of them give me nothing.

So yeah, I don't know what kind of problem this is.
