Is there any chance that you are trying to run a laptop on a battery that has run down? Just a guess based on your description about "a power out or somthing"

Of course, if you see this, that must mean that your computer is running again.

Well, a more elaborate explanation of your problem would help me assist you, but as of now i can only assume your power supply is burnt out, or you have a virus in your bios which is forcing a memory leak and thus resulting in a memory overload, i recommend you download memcheck, and also post the exact error verbose

Lets hope it's not the virus... but the burnt out power supply, if it's a virus... I'M DEAD

Ok, two questions for you.
1. what were you doing when you first noticed the problem.
2. what happens *EXACTLY* when you turn your computer on.

1. [Reply] - I finished posting some replies on the alice community and turned off the comuter as usual when I got back from school, IT DIDN'T TURN ON

2 [Reply] I press the power button it shows the usual 'Intel Desktop Boards' Screen Blanks a couple of times (But thats normal) BUT, Than a message displays about a power failure, pressing the restart button before it turns off, or a hardware change, & I get choices to : start windows normaly, safe mode, & last good configuration. Everyone i choose dosen't work! EVEN SAFE MODE!... Wen I press start windows normally I see the Windows loading screen but than it blanks FOREVER! Same with last good configuration... SAFE MODE I see the list but thats it it stops
