Question about PNY Computers & Internet
I've just installed a GeForce 8500 GT in my HP 1070n PC running Windows XP SP2. Upon power up I'm getting a black screen with the message "Reboot and Select proper boot device or insert boot media in selected boot device and press a key".
What do I do?
Try looking for a message in the BIOS startup screen usually delete or an "F(X)" something button i.e. F1 or F2 That says it will let you chose your boot device. If you can than press that and chose the hard disk option. If it doesnt let you or it doesn't work than theres probably something wrong with your hard drive and I doubt it has much to do with your video card unless the driver caused it. In that case try starting your computer in safe mode by pressing F8 after the BIOS startup and selecting safe mode and then uninstalling the driver from the change/remove applications part of the control panel. Of course if none of that works you could just yell and swear at HP until they help you. :)
