defunct Compaq presario

My friend has a Compaq presario model 6000 running windows xp home edition. Recently whilst playing on his pc he left it alone and the screensaver activated ok, but when he went back to the pc the screen was blank and locked up. He said he couldn't power off the p.c. so he pulled the plug socket out of the wall. Now when he turns it on all he gets is the power lights come on for the dve rom and rewriter drives only, then the screen remains blank and will not boot any further, he does not have an xp disk any ideas would be appreciated many thanks
