    Hi, something weird has come up. I was working on my XP desktop, stopped to grab a cup of coffee and when I came back the screen was black and these words are on it:
    MediaShield ROM BIOS 6.33
    NVIDIA Corp.
    Detecting array". The little white cursor thingy is flashing.

    I rebooted and thought everything was fine because it worked fine until I left it for 5 minutes. It said the same thing again. I rebooted and the same thing happened two more times. Now it's sitting here with the screen black, same words and the little cursor blinking at me. (I'm on my laptop). Help! patwannabe

    Are you using a RAID setup in any way? Do you have more than one hard drive? Have you checked the hard drive connections to the motherboard?

    Now I can't see what the questions were. NOTHING has changed since my daughter gave me her computer 100 years ago. I have the same hard drive I've always had, don't know what RAID is and can't remember the other question, something about a motherboard. The problem just appeared yesterday and I'm looking at a black screen. I don't know what to do. I'm sorry I'm so dumb. :eek:

    Hehe...it's okay...you're not dumb ;)

    Have you ever opened up a computer case before? I'd check all the wiring first and make sure there are no loose or damaged cables.
