When I start up my computer, my screen is black with a cursor on left top corner and cannot go to Window XP Home Edition. I don't have backup or bootup disk. Can anyone help me how to start up? Thanks!

Do you get through POST ? You know the b+w yada yada stuff and then there's a beep before you get to the black screen ? Or just power on and straight to a black screen ?

That's strange , alright . Any USB devices connected ? That's a long shot - it seems strange that you cant get even partially through POST . Are there any beeps from the PC ?

I just try to disconnecting them and robooting and the screen pop up with the bottom left corner say "F1 - setup; F12- boot/device" and then I press F12 and give me "1962 - No operating system found" and the second line "PXE - MOF : No boot filename received". And the system now keep repeating the message over and over again and not stop.
