Are there any beeps out of the speaker prior to the text, also are there any reads on the cdroms, floppy, hds. I am asumming not since you said it never gets to the startup screen, it is getting to the POST or you would have no beeps, no text, it may not be completeing it, but thats what the beeps question is for
So let me know, it could be a wasted bios chip, have you made any modifications of any hardware or has your system been running noticbly hot, check to make sure the fan in the back still runs when power is on, also has the system been locking up or shutting down without reason prior to this error.
