    OK, Dads computer crashed today and, of course, my Dad expects me to pull a magic fix out of my back pocket. I am somewhat knowledgible person but I haven't done a lot computer repair and I can't afford to run back and forth to his house. But enough rambling. The other day he couldn't get his floppy drive to work and now it will not boot up. All he gets on his display is a flashing cursor in the upper left corner and that is it. He said one time about it saying to hit F2 before it went blank but at that point I am thinking it was going through its normal boot sequence. I am suspecting a bad hard drive which I believe he just replaced a year or so ago, or the motherboard crashed...Any input will help before he makes me want to hang myself?

    Verify that he doesn't have a floppy disk in the drive.
