A bad virus would not prevent the initial splash screen or POST screen from being displayed. If there's absolutely nothing coming up on the screen, you most likely have a hardware problem.

This could be a virus but maybe not. Have you recently D/Led (maybe automatically) Windows Internet Explorer 10.0? This has buggered up many people's PCs. With IE 10 I have seen BING Desktop load and the default loads a different usually beautiful background image each day. I would try to boot in safe mode and find out if IE 10.0 has tried to install itself. If so I would uninstall it and see if will then boot normally. If that doesn't work I would roll it back to a date just prior to the problem. As always, make sure you have a decent antivirus program and use it's automatic update feature to make sure you have the latest virus definitions.

thanks for the answer, how do I get something to appear on the display, or what do I have to do to get it back to right?
