Having problems with your HP Compaq Presario SR1830NX PC Desktop ?

Shutting down incorrectly

\015 My computer froze for a couple of minutes last night, and I was impatient and just went for the power button. The thing is, I have not managed to turn it back on since then. It gives me some safety options when I try switch it on to login, but those just give me a blank screen. What is a man to do?\015
