no it doesnt say anything. it wont boot up. it just goes as far as trying to boot. its the screen where it says the name of computer. its just a blue screen with name of computer on it. no bar indecating its trying to boot either. it just sits there and does nothing.

and it only started running like this when the storm hit not to long ago.

the hard drive wasnt working and the seguence got changed to see if that was the problem. to see the way the computer boots up.
i went into the system setup and change how the computer boots up it was trying to boot off of a removable device instead of the hard drive

Since it sound like u were using the pc and the storm took out the power this may be a OS error which means youll have to try to repair the corrupted files i the harddrive so your probably going to have to do simething called a chkdks to find and fix anything corrupted.

Ok ask you friend if he/she deleted any temporary internet files because it looks like to me that your temporary internet files are missing. Ok first of all yes try to boot into safe mode, and no you do not need the Internet for this. Now once your into safe mode go to start run and put in the box "chkdsk" (without the quotes) and then follow the on screen instructions, it will htne scan your hard drive for any corruption once finished it will try to fix them.

Good luck!

What did you do to get it to boot up?

To get to safe mode on most computers you start tapping F8 before Windows tries to start.
