PC has stopped booting ?

My other PC won't boot !

I saw that the CPU was only showing 1.05mhz instead of 1400mhz.

So I restarted with the intention of fixing it in the BIOS like I've done before.

I kept pressing the Del key repeatedly and unusually the floppy drive kept searching for a disk ?

Then nothing so I manually restarted thinking I'd have another go!

Now there's just a black screen no beeps- nothing !?

What's going on !!?

If your floppy is searching for a disk and you've not had any BIOS screens it sounds to me like your BIOS has become corrupted and has a Bootblock section that is looking for a BIOS flash file on a floppy.

Reset the cmos jumper and put in a different graphics card as there was absolutely no display whatsoever - problem solved !

I had just run 3D Mark 2001SE on my 4 year old Matrox 32mb G450 prior to it refusing to reeboot.

I guess it was just too much of a strain for my poor old vga card.

The funeral is on monday.
