and nothing is happening. Hello everyone, I am new here. Took me many trials and errors to find this forum. Anyway, here is my problem: I downloaded the ACRONIS Disk Director Suite 10 Trial to check it out, installed it, and then shut the computer down for the night without doing anything with "Acronis" at all. Next morning I turn the computer on and all I get is a "Loading, please wait" message. Well, I waited. And waited some more, and then some more... Nothing is happening. The WINDOWS XP bootable CD won't let me do anything, either, just says "no harddrives found" when starting. XP Repair Console same thing. F6 & F11 keys are non-responsive as well. Any help would be GREATLY appreciated! Thanks, and a Merry Christmas to all of you.
