Hi all just reinstalled XP on the above yasterday all went well activated ok and installed a couples of programmes, shut down and this morning started the machine it goes to the Packard Bell Logo screen and goes no further.
I have tried all combination of keys to try and get into either safe mode or the bios nothing works tried:F5 F8 F12 Del, On the P/Bell screen it says [press esc to switch screen] [F2 Bios] [F8 Boot Device] none work.
The sata h/d is spinning all optical drives work, so i put my XP Home disc in the drive to start again but no Windows software runs just goes to the Packard Bell Logo screen again.
Any help would be welcome.
Packard Bell I Media H1525
500 gig Sata H/D
2 Gig Ram
Changed the sata cable for new one still the same.Meant to say allso the red light on the front panel is a constant red where as before it would go off and only be flickering with any activity on the PC.
