Screen becomes black after Windows XP Splash-Screen
Posted on 2004-03-24
Today, when I turned on my computer, the screen went black after the Windows XP Pro Splash-Screen. I waited a while, rebooted, rebooted in safe mode, rebooted about 20 times in all different modes without any success...
So I tried reinstalling windows(why I posted this in storage). Again without any success, it said "Checking Hard Drive" and again nothing happened. I am using an external S-ATA controller, but it usually worked. The Mainboard is a MS-6741(unpopular) and I am using quite a new BIOS(9.3.04) which was provided by my computer-manufacturer. I thought it might be a bug in the BIOS but I couldn't find the old 1.0 one. I am able to start the computer using Knoppix without any error messages but knoppix doesn't support S-ATA anyway.
Can anyone help?
It would also really help if you could upload/tell me where to download a MS-DOS Boot-Disk which supports FDISK and FORMAT because knoppix can't create them as far as I know...
I'm sorry I don't have any more points to offer.
