Wrong bootdisk (for much older system) was inserted in floppy drive of HP pavilion and booted. Since then only startup screen loads and then tries to boot, refuses to acknowledge the harddrive and starts to access A:,and gives a black screen with upperlefthand cursor. Ran diag. on sys., harddrive, in dos.
Everything ok. reformatted, fresh os install. Still nothing. I accessed BIOS and restored default settings. Didn't help.Running out of options. Any ideas ?
