ok. i'm writing this on a pda so bear with me.

i plugged in my new video card, and windows would hang on loading screen. i did a hard reboot to my comp. not turning on at all. i tried new power supply, different video card, reset cmos, everything.

now, i have diagnostic lights which are indicating a floppy drive starting; it hangs here. i have plugged in a floppy drive to see if that fixes it but nope.

help

Did you try disabling the Floppy in the BIOS... that was where you stated the system hung. Maybe check the Boot Priority, though I don't know how this could have been affected by a VGA card swap...

Just taken shots in the dark.

Grrr...!

So, no BIOS access... I am assuming you could access it at one point?

Do you have a PS/2 keyboard that you could use for troubleshooting? I have buggered things up to the point where my USB keyboards won't function and I have to use a PS/2 interface.

Okay guys. Sorry about my lack of thanks and details. I was typing everything out on a Pocket PC, which isn't the easiest and fastest thing.

Well, I got it fixed. Don't ask me how, but I did. I was up ALL night, and I need to get my sleep now. Thank you so much! Rep+ to you all.
