I am helping my cousin with her computer and when she brought it to me there was a blank screen with a flashing cursor in the top left corner of the screen. It is a HP Pavillion with AMD Turion 64X2 processor and looks to have dual HD's.

I can access the bios and tried booting from a boot disk with no luck. I also tried disabiling the sleep C4 also.

I took the hard drive out and put it into a USB sleeve and it is in the process of starting vista (it has been hung up for a few hours).

Any thoughts on what this could be? mobo?

Oh, i also ran the bios test on the HDD and the memory and they came back ok.

Your help will be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,
Mike

Oh...and I just rebooted the computer because it stalled for so long and it now has a black screen with "Err1Err3" instead of a blank cursor.

I thought it was a HDD problem, but i plugged it into my other computer via a USB sleeve and i can see all of the files ok.
