    First, please bear with me, i'm on my phone. Win7 won't install. The first try went fine until near the end. I got a black screen. I tried to start from every option off F8 on start-up with no luck. The furthest I got was a rejection saying setup was not complete or it went to the black screen. I then made the mistake of powering Off and not Esc. I am now stuck with Windows Error Recovery and any attempt will get me no further then Setup Starting Services and then it reboots. Also, I can't rollback from Recovery to XP because it asks for a password I don't know!

    I have a Nvidia GEforce 7300 graphics card. I saw one thread related to this, but can't even try any of the suggestions because I can't get that far.

    Help!! Thanks!

    I just reinstalled from the disc. I may have it solved by going to the low res off F8....It worked this time!
