Computer won't post/boot
My Inspiron 8000 won't boot up. The Inspiron flash page with "press F2 for setup" and 'press F12 for boot page, comes up and then just a cursor. The flash page won't respond to the F2/F12 keys and the blank page that comes up after the flash page won't respond to any key strokes.
I was able to get the HDD diagnostics to run using Ctl - Alt - D but no reaction to F2, F8 or F12.
When the HDD diagnostics ran it displayed the following:
Drive 0: IC25N020ATCS04-0 Pass 00
Press <Enter> to reboot.
It will not boot from the floppy or cd.
