This machine, we thought had a dodgy disk. So we've got a replacement disk and we're trying to boot it.. It freezes just after the hardware summary screen on boot.
It has 1 single flashing cursor in the top left corner.. the rest of the screen is black/blank. I have tried a different AGP video card but to no avail, I know the different card worked fine.
I've tried different memory in it, of varying quantities.
When we try to go into the BIOS, it allows you to view for a small period of time... and when you try and change some options it crashes. For example, I tried changing the boot order and it crashed.
The motherboard is a GigaByte GA7ZXE - could it be a motherboard/bios type problem? Ill look around for some firmware for it but Id appreciate some help.
Pls help, Ill award points ASAP.
