    Today after restarting computer my screen suddenly turned pink and when you start up again you can't go into setup screen anymore. I have a black screen until you get the users page from Windows XP. Do I have a hardware or software problem and what can be done? Thanks for your help. Kris

    Yes I did, I wanted to put a second hard disk but that didn't work. I disconnected the second hard disk again and afterwards my screen turned pink. But PC was turned off. I never change anything when PC is turned on. When I put the second disk I got the message "son system disk" although the original hard disk was my primary disk.Thanks for your time

    No the problem remains. When I put the second disk I got a change message and went automatiocally in my setup. I saved the changes. But thenI got the "non syustem disk message" so I removed the second disk again. The thing is that I don't get to go to setup anymore. When you start up screen is black and then it turns pink the moment you get your users icons. You don't see the windows starting up etc.
