Power cut and HP = Problems...Help

  diver9 19:13 11 Jan 2010


I have just had a call from a friend who had a power cut while the computer was just in sit there and do nothing mode.

It is an HP and is running Vista 32 - beyond this I am unsure.

Since then all that happens is a screen comes up with:

Intel R
82945G Chipset
family PCI accelerated SVGA BIOS
Build No 1217PC14.12......

Decompilation or Dissasembly Prohibited.

They are unable to get into the bios or any other screen.....Anyone got any ideas. I can confirm the computer was NOT downloading or doing anything.

Thanks in advance

try restarting and keep tapping F8 until the safe mode screen comes up then choose restart on last known good startup (or words to that effect) thats if it will get to safe mode screen.
