Vista Install Crash has left me with a blank boot-up screen
Ok bit of a long one, but here's the background:
I have recently formatted my HDD (from my new PC) and cleaned out my old PC and cleaned & re-applied the thermal paste to the processor.
After putting my HDD back into the case, I booted the computer and inserted the Vista install disc (to be later upgraded to Windows 7). When i 1st got the PC (7 yrs ago) it was fine but now to boot properly it needs the side to be off.
Well after the clean and going for the fresh install I left the side of the case on, thinking it would be able to handle this...obviously I was wrong.
I set vista to install, set the keyboard language, then walked away as it unpacked and started to install. When I came back the sceen was black. I waitied 5 minutes and sitll nothing, no processor light, no DVD-Drive usage... nothing. I instantly hit the reset button.
The computer reset with the BIOS as usual. I continued and let the PC try nd boot from the HDD, no such luck. I reset again and this time forced to boot from the Vista disc still in the DVD-Drive. Next thing I know the screen went off and showed no sign of recieving a signal. I've tried turning the computer on/off multiple times but nothing comes through to the screen, it goes to stanby. The PC also doesn't turn off by pressing the power button on the BIOS (like it has always done).
Any ideas on what's going on!?
