Can you Start the computer in safe mode?

have you try the last know good configuration?

to do either one these two do this
When the computer restarts but before Windows launches, press F8 (a few times)

Use the arrow keys (up or down) to highlight the appropriate Safe Mode option or Last Known Good Configuration and then press ENTER (you can only choose one) I will start with the Last known Good...

If Windows launches before you can choose your option, try again when the computer restart.

Once you go to safe mode run this command CHKDKS /R and restart the PC, wait for the check disk utility to finish might take a little while.

Let me know

System manufacturer and model?

Any error message onscreen...other than No Signal?

The No Signal message...normally indicates a problem with communication between system and video card, IME.

Can you get into the BIOS?

Was the system on when the power was cut?
