When I turn on the computer, bios screen appears (white writings on black screen) Ram is Ok, CPU is ok, HDD is ok. But then display gets lost and all I have is a black screen. (On the computer, harddisk light is on meaning it is working i guess).

My system is as follows:
- Windows XP SP2
- Intel P4 E2180 Dual 2.0GHz 800MHz 1MB 64BIT
- P4M900M DDR2 VGA+LAN+SATA 16X 775p
- 2x1 GB DDR2 667 MHz Dual
- 512 MB Gforce 7200 GS 128 BIT PCX16

Have you tried booting into Safe Mode to see if you could bypass the screen? Jazz

All I can get is pressing "Delete" and entering BIOS setup. Can I boot into safe mode from there?

You should tap on F8 on bootup. Don't wait until you hit the black screen. If you can't get past the black screen - put your OS CD in and see if you can boot from that. Jazz

I get the "Press any key to boot from CD" warning, I press any key and black screen comes back.

Can you forget the black screen just a moment a focus on what's happening inside your case? Is the system booting up at all. The fans all moving including the one located on your CPU? Is your hard drive moving? Very important step. Jazz
