    I tried booting up my XP today, and it went to a blank screen, with a flashing ___ line. That's all that was on the screen. It's right after the press F2 for setup and F12 for w/e else.
    I've also tried hitting both F2 and F12 and nothing happens. After a while, and a little messing around, i finally got it to boot up just fine. Is there any way to stop this from happening again? If not, what will become of this? It is a fairly new Dell Dimension 3200 i think.
