    You say you can't "get a screen up". Does this mean nothing is showing on the screen? A RAM chip or the video card might be loose and you might want to try and reseat them. If you need to access your data immediately, you can take out the hard drive and install it as a slave into another system. Alternatively, you can get an external enclosure to hook it up to another PC via USB/1394.

    yea sounds like a ram issue
    if you have more than 1 stick then try them separately you may find that 1 is messed.
    if you only have 1 stick then change the slot its in.

    good luck
