I just bought an external mobile rack box(ExShuttle 2000) which connects an extra harddrive to pc through USB port... I wanted to back up my C: drive to the extra harddrive using Norton Ghost... Ghost displayed a msg sayiing that it will restart the computer and start creating the image.... but then my computer got restarted and after the memory check screen, all I got was a white blinking cursor on the top left corner of a black screen.... and now my win xp won't start anymore, I tried booting the computer with WinXP CD, still, after the memory check screen, all I got was a white blinking cursor on the top left corner of a black screen.... Can anyone please help me?! @_@

this happened before you ran ghost?
use the CD on someone elses computer and in the Ghost program make a bootable floppy disk, make sure that it has USB tranfer included on the disk.
then insert the floppy and restart your computer...
as to what happened I am not quite sure, windows might still be trying to start ghost...  when you first turn on your computer press and hold F8, that should let you boot into windows in safe mode... if not try booting with the WinXP CD and do a repair.
