Try booting from a bootable CD. You may have to get into setup to change the boot sequence to CD. Whilst you arevthere check to see if it recognises your hard drive.

Problem solved i tried another hard drive then ram nothing decided to change the power supply back to the original one from when i purchased the computer as i was going to send the computer back as it is under waranty and what do you know its working now so it looks like the power supply is dead, I have never had one do this before usualy when the power supply fails the computer will not start.

I will test the power supply the next time before i try anything else i think.

Thanks for the reply

Scotty
