Here is a possible fix. More to follow.

1: Turn off your computer and unplug the power for 10mins.
2: Plug the power back in and make sure you press Fn and F6 at the same time as your computer is starting up.

Do any messges show on the screen?

Usually you can hit a key--sometimes TAB--to toggle to the posting screen. If that works maybe an error message will show. Can you get into cmos/bios setup?
