    So can you still get to bios? I have seen a problem where a computer would start to load up, go through to the xp splash screen then everything would go black. It looked as though the monitor was turning off. It turned out to be a video problem. The way i got around it was to use a tv through the video card and i re-installed the video drivers. But i don't know if you have that option. What video card do you have?
