I have the same problem except that I can still move my mouse.
My system contains:
Athlon XP 2400+
1024 MB DDR 200MHZ
Nvidia GeForce 6800
Don't know my HDD, but it is a Samsung 80GB using S-ATA (~18GB free space).
I have tried to install Vista after formating the HDD, I have tried to
install it without formating and to upgrade from Windows XP SP 2. The result
was always the same. Also Windows Vista Upgrade Advisor tells me that Vista
should run smoothly on my PC ...
I have browsed the internet for a while now, but I couldn't find a solution.
Could anyone please help me?
