Having problems with your Dell Dimension 3000 PC Desktop ?

Black screen I think mine has the same problem but you didn't quite put enough detail in the black screen problem. When I turn my machine on it loads but then it takes me to a black screen with a _ symbol in the top left corner. I can't fix this problem because when I try to go to the F8 menu it does nothing, the only menus' I am able to access is the System Settings menu and the Boot Menu. Any ideas?


Answers :

Check your connector cables i mean board to drve and then enter the xp cd by changing the first boot device to cd-rom
If you have access to some other PC, try downloading Hiren Boot CD & burn it into a CD. You have numerous utilities in this, which could be used to solve the issue.
