I have an old 8303-21u  by IBM  ( Lenovo)      I wanted to put a fresh install of XP PRO SP3 on it.  When I put the cd in it starts up but you never see the part about hitting F5 etc... for drivers, the screen remains blank until it gets to the Part where it asks if you want to do a repair or install Windows.   The install goes great until it reboots  but then  the screen comes back black.   I have gone into the bios and used  the onboard video....  but no luck anyway I try.  I tried a different Install CD  and even swapped the CD ROM out.....    Has anyone run into this before.? What was your solution?
