I've restored my computer to factory settings with a disk suppied with the computer. When booting up it freezes on a blank screen with a flashing curser in the top left hand corner. I've tried the boot disk again with no joy - any ideas?

have patience

leave it flashing for at least 10 minutes (go for a drink) it sometimes takes this long for things to reset.

We are living in the computer age but its suprising how long a milli second really is.
