Dave, my wife’s pitching a fit… help me please! We have separate ‘putes ,and which one do I mess up? Hers…. I was updating the BIOS from emachines. That worked without a problem. Rebooted, and had an HP logo on my screen. I pressed F1 and F10, then the screen went black. All that was showing was a blinking “-” in the top left hand corner of screen. I can control-alt-del to get into the BIOS. The machine is running Windows XP… emachines wants it for about three weeks roundtrip to fix it. I’m going to keep it. Any ideas how I can fix it?
