If you can't boot to a known good dvd then you may have a hardware issue. Diag the hardware.

A Pit Bull is like a gun you can pet. And there is no safety on it.

Do you see video when you first start the computer? If not, then it has nothing to do with Windows.

You didn't update the BIOS did you?

Did you check boot order to DVD before hard drive? Did you "hit any key to boot from CD/DVD"? Do a repair/system restore.

Try F8 at boot up and select "last known good configuration".

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.

Good news. Apparently I fixed it by holding the start button for 30 seconds. It shut itself down, so I restarted it, and it is working OK (for now). Thanks for your thoughts
