    Ok, my friends computer won't load...when you turn the computer on all you get is a black screen with a white blinking line in the corner. even if you press f8 while you're booting, it still does the same thing. it looks like a dos prompt but you can't type any thing....does anyone know anything about this? any suggestions much appreciated!!

    HI :) is there any cd/dvd in the drive or any iPods or mp3 mp4 players plugged in? before the white cursor appears is the any other text on the screen at all or beeping noises?

I can only go to my BIOS F1 no ther button will work. I dwnloaded hotkey program and turn my pc off and restarted it. Any suggestions much appreciated!!
