Okay, so today I got home, turned on my power transformer that is my old 8790 is hooked up to and started to turn her on. It beeped at me, and gave the old flashing caps/num/scroll lock trick and then turned itself off. I figured I hadn't given the power enough time to register so I tried it again after ensuring it was registered as plugged in. (My battery has been dead for quite some time now) Again, no go. So I cracked her open did a quick cleaning and plugged her back in again. Now she will start up, and I get the bios and the normal detection items coming up as well as the ability to go into the startup. But after that, it won't load anything else, it just sits there with a blank black screen. Any thoughts or suggestions to try? I'm kicking myself on this one as I hadn't moved all my old data over to my new computer because it was just so handy sitting there to use as my web browsing computer.
