First U want to go into the bios and make sure everything is good, harddrive is there, ram, etc.
To get to the bios, press F2 or Del during that black screen time. Depending on the type and age of the computer, it should tell U what to press to enter Bios or Setup.
If it does not get that far, the Mother board has died.
If everything checks good in Bios, set for load defaults and F10 to save and exit. What happens next?

A couple things to check first, make sure there's no floppy disc/cd in the drives, and if you are comfortable with computers, you can enter the boot setup of your BIOS, and check to see that your hard drive is listed as the primary boot device.
Restart your computer
during the boot process you will see on the screen a certain key to press usually the Delete or F2 to enter setup this will vary depending on your computers bios
Press and hold that key during the boot up process to enter BIOS using the arrow keys navigate to advanced bios features press ENTER to check if its set to boot from your hard drive
if for any reason you have changed a setting in bios and you are unsure of it you can load failsafe defaults or load optimized defaults press escape then press f10 to save to cmos to restart .
WARNING: Before you start troubleshooting remember that you are dealing with electricity that can KILL.
Or there is a connection problem such as a bad cable
Test all power and data leads that attach to your hard drive IDE,SATA
the leads from your MOTHERBOARD TO THE HARD DRIVE make sure they have a
secure dust free connections and are not faulty or just replace them they could be faulty if its a flat 40pin ide
this will be the first to fail
make sure all leads that are attached to your drives dvd\cd 3 1/2 inch floppy have secure connections and are not faulty
or just replace them they could be faulty a computer needs power and data to travel through every working device and continue its cycle and have an end so any faulty leads will end up with a computer error
hope this helps
