    Hey guys!

    I was tipsed by a friend to use TrueCrypt to encrypt my entire disks and I was thinking hey good idea. Said and done I installed and rebooted and on windows loading screen ofcourse it gets stuck.

    I went to recovery console tried fixboot fixmbr chkdsk /p etc nothing helped so I formatted and installed win xp again.

    all is fine until i install video drivers the driver install goes to a black screen with a blinking "_" in it..

    Then I tried vista and it installs there and on reboot i get a black screen after loading.

    This really has brought my spirits down big time. So much for christmas...
