Default Computer not booting

From HD or CD drive. It starts up, runs the welcome screen, lets you load bios but no other key combinations will work. When it gets done with that, it goes to a black screen and freezes. What could be the cause of this?

Default Re: Computer not booting

When you boot into bios, does it give you an option to change the boot order? If it does, change it to your CD drive or HDD. Can you actually get into bios?

Also, is this a new build?

I like to blame memory for every problem... Check RAM connections and type. Is this a recent problem... how old is computer?
