PC not booting up

  malydee 13:05 07 Jan 2007

Since Tuesday, 2/1/07 I have been getting a blank screen on start up then when I restart my system I have been getting a Phoenix Award BIOS Screen with a list of installed components and a warning message that the system is in safe mode, that I should reset the CPU or memory frequency in the CMOS set up and that I should press F1 to continue or Del to enter set up.
Pressinf Del leaves me with a blank screen and a flashing cursor but no access to the BIOS.
Pressing F1 enters the XP system and the PC started up.
The following information was shown below the warning - 01/09/2006-C19-W83627-6A61EA1AC-13
This message and procedure has been evident since on start up but as I was unable to enter the BIOS there was little I could do to resolve the situation.
On 5/1/07 using the XP recovery console I rolled back to 26/12/06.
The problem still existed and on 6/1/07 I cleared the CMOS memory.
Now the system will not go into the BIOS start up and when I switch off the power the system powers off immediately.
Any help would be appreciated.

try re setting the graphics card. It seems to be graphics related, maybe the graphics card has blown.

Hopefully it's as simple as sunny staines suggested, but I suspect it's not.

C19-W83627-6A61EA1AC-13 is the BIOS version.

If you can't get into the BIOS setup, this suggests to me a faulty motherboard.

Do you get a POST beep at startup?

Yep I conclude a Faulty BIOS chip
