It's a locally-built PC with intel dual core 2duo processor, asus p5kpl-am motherboard, atapi CD-rom. 4G of RAM, HD 500G.
Don't think it is the video card now... if I just wait, nothing happens, it doesn't proceed with the boot, if it was a video issue it would surely carry on booting.
Maybe it is a bios issue? What else could prevent the CD (confirmed ok) from booting properly & just give a line on the monitor?
