if all else fails, reset your CMOS settings, check your motherboards user manual to check how to reset this. if you dont know how to do this, you can remove the battery that sits on the motherboard, take it out for about 5 minutes then put it back in.

This should help boot your machine, when you boot up first time after a CMOS reset you will need to at least set the time and date in bios for the machine to boot up.
