    I have a toshiba notebook 1415-S173, whne I turn it on, it will not
    boot up, and the only thing that is displayed is a black screen and
    the cursor. I put the win xp CD in and the same result. Any ideas??

    Thanks.

    If the notebook has a floppy drive, then I'd try a start-up disk, and have a
    looksee at the hard drive, if it's there .. :)

    Had this with a shagged hard drive controller once.
