Carol, my friend is sighted. There is nothing on the Monitor Screen when
the 
Computer is switched on. She can still hear the usual system sounds like
the 
Computers fan, and the CD drawer still slides open and closes. Anyway,
the Computer is now off to the DOCS. Billy

Hmmm!

Something similar happened to me once and the message that came up on
the screen was something about accepting Bios Defaults, Y/N.  Try
hitting "Enter" or "Y", if you think there's nothing you can lose;  but
better still would probably be to have someone watching the monitor.

As Tris says, if the bios upgrade has failed then there may be nothing
for it but a "Shop Job" and it could be fairly expensive too!

This sounds like the BIOS upgrade hasn't gone that well, been
interrupted mid way through, or perhaps even the wrong BIOS upgrade file
was used. In these situations the BIOS chip on the motherboard has to be
replaced usually.  This is why most manufacturers and those who've done
this sort of thing before warn that great must be taken before
considering flashing a

BIOS or firmware on a peice of electronic equipment.

hi guys, sorry about this, but I'm trying to help a friend out here. She
had been having some problems with her Epsom Printer. When she got out
the engineer from the company. He told her there was nothing wrong with
the printer, but it was a problem with her memory. He said the computer
memory was running over, and that an upgrade was needed. Anyway, he
upgraded the printers driver, and the printer then worked okay. My
friend then had the problem of her memory needing upgraded. She asked on
some forum or other for advice, and was told to update the computers
Bios as well. She did so, using a Bios upgrade program, that came with
the mother board. According my friend, the upgrade went all right, and
the program told her to reboot for the effects to take place, but when
she shutdown the system for reboot. Waited for sometime for the computer
to boot into Windows, but noticed that the system was not doing
anything. Nothing came up on the monitor at all, the screen just stayed
blank, not even the usual check before booting into Windows. She is
running XP Pro. Anyone got any Ideas, what has gone wrong. It looks to
me like it has something to do with the Bios upgrade. Is there anyway
she can reverse the Bios upgrade, or is it something completely
different, she is having the problem with. Billy
