Computer stuck on bios code

Hello, my PC is stuck on the bios code screen. The code looks as though it may be infected with something full of symbols and smiley faces etc. Norton fully installed too! I've taken a photo of the screen but can't upload to this post.

It is a Packard Bell, windows vista, all USB hardware unplugged and retried with no joy! Please help,thanks!

Do you have a bootable cd? Doesn't matter what it is, we simply want to see if PC will boot from a cd.

If it does, "borked windows installation" to quote MechKB2

If not then we need to keep looking.

If you need a bootable cd then download Puppy Linux as an iso and burn it to a cd. If it boots from this we can copy your user files to a usb stick before doing any thing else.
