my computer crashed and I ran acer cd's for setting up to factory specs. Everything on all three disc's went ok and window says we will take a few minutes to set up your computer.Bottom left says click next to continue botton right has ? or f1 for help.
Problem is the green square with the word [next] is not there so I changed the hard drive and ran a fresh copy of another winows xp installation. The same result so can somebody tell me is this a motherboard problem?

You need to rule out cable by trying another one. I would also unplug everything except 1 hard drive and 1 cd drive...any added ram and all pci cards.

I do not understand PM so please forgive if I am doing wrong.
Have changed all ide cables,hdd.and also dvd drive to cd-rom drive. Still same result. Have legend nvfx5200 card in agp slot. If I remove this I do not know how to have onboard display working.Looks like I only have cpu,bios,or motherboard to replace to find problem?
Regards Ian Warren PS as I am retired I have lots of time to apply any suggetions

Problem solved. I feel a little silly but maybe this will help others .
When setup reached "lets take a few minutes to set up your computer" I used moniter vetical to adjust screen and the back, skip,and next buttons moved into veiw, so really they were there all the time,just hidden from view.
