Cant get compaq Presario SR2150NX to start

\015 Compaq Presario SR2150NX . It has a ECS RC415ST-HM\015\012\015\012 board in it. It starts but once it gets by the AMI screen I just get a small blinking line in the top left hand corner. I had the hard drive and the dvd checked. Checked good. I took out the card and put them back in, moved the jumpers to reset bios. Any ideas??\015\012\015\012Thanks, Will\015

Answers :

Get in the bios settings and make sure to have the hard drive in the boot line, try different settings like SATA/IDE compatible mode if the drive is not seen by the motherboard, try different plugs.
if the bios settings don't stay , check the position of the clear cmos jumper and change the backup battery of the motherboard.
Try to boot from cd. maybe a virus took off the boot flag from the hdd.
