    no haven't installed a new HD matey phoey how can this be sorted ?

    I'm not sure what causes this, when I've seen it before the hard drive data is intact and appears fully functional but for some reason won't boot. I'd get your data backed up then try a repair install.

    Have you modified it in any way ?.

    did you need to force the machine off last boot or did it crash last time it was used?

    Is the flashing cursor the only screen you see or does it stop at that after doing something else?

    I assume you've unplugged all extra peripherals and removed CDs and floppy disks from drives?

    actually now i remember once coming across a machine doing this turned out to be a usb router/modem connection, unplugged, rebooted machine and router and reconnected
