  1. Windows installation only gives me blue Windows logo.

  2. I've been working on a system recently and the CPU works fine I can get into the BIOS but when I try opening the windows installer on my USB flash drive it only gives me the blue Windows logo and doesn't do anything else. I've tried looking for settings like "CPU protection or saftey", but I don't think there there. Specs Pentium e5800 Intel dq965gf motherboard.

    My computer stopped booting recently. It shows the DELL logo, then gives me a black screen. (Like the monitor is on but it gives me a black screen). I tried booting from a USB, but that gives me about black screen. The BIOS? Same thing. Can you corrupt your BIOS? I did reset it but the way.
  14. I've used my phone for a while now. , And it's worked perfectly. I've recently been testing since hard drives, and after that I've tried to boot back into Windows.
