Xp installation interrupted

Hello everybody! Hope you can help me...
I have Pentium 4, PlatiniX 2 main board (Intel 485 Series). I use XP SP2 operating system.I was trying to format my PC but the installation on the end when it wanted reboot was interrupted(my sister press enter and the PC restarted). After the restart the monitor went black and there is just one short beep. I can't access the BIOS (it appears like there is no Bios) and there also is no operating system.
Thanx! :)

Your BIOS should be fine,its contained on a separate chip on the MB.
Can you start the install process again,boot from the OS disc ?.

No i can't. It reads the installation cd but the monitor is steel black.The installation doesn't start.

Be patient
enter cause a restart at that point screen will be black as it loads drivers.

Have you made sure that the computer is still set to boot from disc or DVD, as sometimes mine changes booting settings on its own especially if a program stops responding and I restart the PC.
