Restarted pc while reinstalling windows

  Window56 01:08 16 Jun 2016

Part of the way through the process of reinstalling windows 10 on to my pc i bumped the restart button. Now when ever i turn the pc on i just get a blank screen with no signal. Its as if my monitor isn't plugged into the computer. Does anyone have any ideas on how to fix this? I have tried putting a windows disc in and booting from that, but no luck. Difficult as i cant access any software at all.

Maybe you have to Set DVD as first boot in the Bios if you can get in there.

What do you actually see on your monitor, and what colour is the light on the monitor switch?

Do you hear the standard beep indicating that the PC has passed the POST Also, can you hear any sounds form the hard drive and are the fans spinning?

If you interrupted a windows install it will not then boot from the hard drive.

You will need to set the BIOS to boot from either DVD or USB as first boot device and then boot with windows media. Format the partition and start the install again

But surely he will see something on the screen - even if its the message that the OS cannot be found?
