If this happened right after a power failure then I think your operating system might be done. This is common behavior for an OS that was ruined while doing something important (i.e. Windows Updates, installations, cleanings, etc).

Do you have the restore CD that came with the system or is there a restore partition that you can press a button to activate while it boots?

Okay, when your computer first boots up, is there an option there during the boot process that says "Press (whatever button) for Factory Restore" or something along those lines?

It says setup menu (del) and re boot menu (f12) I pressed f12 but it goes to a black screen and the setup menu gives me options for bios etc.
