    Put a vista dvd in the tray and press setup. at some point it will give you an option to repair, restore or boot normally

    Do you have a backup you can restore from?

    I don't think you're getting past the post, which has nothing to do with the operating system. Did you flash the bios?

    Replug in your keyboard.

    For further diagnostics...

    remove all PCI cards except video
    remove hard drive and dvd connections

    see if you can get to bios.

    if that doesn't work, pull memory

    i think my gf interrupted the update & im using a usb wireless keyboard
    but have tried other keyboards, i haven't tried re-flashing the bios as
    my system doesn't have a floppy drive but am buying one tomorrow
    do you think that when interrupted it was flashing the bios as thats the
    only thing that i haven't tried?

    If flashing the bios was interrupted, then that could be the cause.
