    Well have a look at: Tutorial: No POST (Power On Self Test) to get it started again

    And then install Windows clean:

    Try the Ultimate Boot CD for Windows to help backup your important data. The link also includes help installing Windows clean :)

    But if nothing to backup, then just remove the Partition:

    Microsoft's Windows XP Professional Repair Install step by step (* Including Delete Partition)

    Microsoft's Windows XP Home Repair Install step by step (* Including Delete Partition)

    * Warning deleting the Partition will remove all User data and Windows system files

    Vista Repair:

    For further help, lease put your System Specs information in your Profile
    If you have a proprietary computer like Dell; HP; Acer etc, please manually write this in the mobo field (ie Dell Dimension 3100 - as an example)

    I'd say that'll just about cover it ;)
