HP Pavilion z1420n won't even boot into CMOS

\015 HI... I can't seem to get my Pavilion a1420n to boot into CMOS... Last week I was given this PC from a friend who said it was fine but had some sort of virus or OS problem.... Explorer.exe keep reloading... I think it was caused by a virus which corrupted one component of the OS which explorer was trying to load... anyway, to make a long story short, I tried reinstalling XP onto the machine and part way through the install, the computer spits out the CD and tells me that my copy of XP is corrupt and can not continue to be loaded.... so I turned off the machine and proceeded to dig out my boot CD and try an install of another copy of XP...(different disc). To my great befuddlement the PC won't even boot into the CMOS. I'm not sure whether this has become a hardware issue or a software issue... I would replace the HD if that was the problem, however I fear it is worse than this due to the fact that I can't even get the CMOS to load up... my monitor stays blank... and I've checked the monitor's connections just in case that's where the issue lies... So I'm sure it's got to do with either the memory being corrupt or the board is somehow screwed up enough that CMOS won't even work....Please inform me of what you think might be the issue and a route to solve the problem if you know of one.Thanks.Tiburon_Rob\015
