    So, I push the power button and nothing happens. I get a black screen with a cursor flashing in the top left corner
    Am I fucked? :facepalm: It's my spare computer btw(laptop) the dvd player is not working, so I can't put
    any sort of recovery disc. I tried safe mode, nada! I push any of the keys and I get a beep, That's it. Go!! :coffee:
