    I'm having some serious troubles with my main PC, my gaming PC, and it's really messing things up for me.

    I was just parusing around like usual on my computer, it runs Windows 7, and I allowed it to download the usual updates and restart itself. When it shut down and began restarting, I notice that it loads up the logo, briefly flashes what I think is called a Bios Post page, and then goes to a page that is nothing but a blinking "__" sign. It does nothing here, won't continue, and I can't enter or do anything. It just endlessly blinks, before disappearing and the computer screen shows nothing but black.

    Can I get some help here? I'd really appreciate it. .___.

    Have you tried to start in "Safe Mode" to see what happens? (Pressing F8 repeatedly immediately upon booting).

    It won't get that far. I tried, and it just continues and goes to the endless screen with the blinking "__"
