1 Disconnect the battery and the charger
2 Let it sit for 1-2 minutes.
3 Press and hold down the power button for 30 seconds.
4 Reconnect battery and charger and try to start by pressing the power button.

Failing that remove cd, hdd and memory and add them back in reverse order.

yeah i know what you mean, it sounds like possible hardware that is causing it to lock up. sorry, have you tried booting it withot the hard drive see if it gets past the bios screen

It didn't mate, the issue is that is doesn't enter bios at all, just keeps me on the startup screen ferever. And i am sure it is just a small time hardware error cause the whole thing camed up after i uninstaled some kind of windows tool that was instaled from the internet by a friend of mine.

hmmmm, i am not sure on this one then, yeah it must be some kind of hardware prob or a corrupt bios. If you have pretty much messed around with different hardware and tryin to get it in bios then im out of options.

Have you reset the cmos? this will clear the bios. give that a go, usually a battery inside on the motherboard that you just take out for a min or so then replace.
