Hello, first post here, might be a bit rough to follow but if you can help me, cheers.
(this is my brothers computer, kinda crap)
So heres the story, I was just looking around in bios and looking at one thing (because the graphic drivers like to screw up..!) so I switched the EGA/VGA to disable and it won't turn on again! at all..

I don't know what to do.. if you need more i will give what i can.

Try opening the case (unplug it first) and pulling out the CMOS battery (it looks like a watch battery) then hold the power button the front for about 60 seconds and then put it back in, plug it back in and see if it starts.

Try pulling out any videocards and using onboard video. Also try flip-flopping the keyboard and mouse in their ports.
