Boot into safe mode by tapping the f8 key during memory count up and selecting the safe mode menu options.
If it boots, run a hijackthis log and post the results here.

That didn't work either. It doesn't appear that the key board has been recognized. Normally in the boot sequence you see the keyboard recognized when a light appears on it...that ight doesn't come on

I always keep a $4 keyboard that is simple, but I know it works in my toolkit just to avoid problems with this.
Do you have a second computer?
Do you here fans spinning?
Is this a laptop or desktop? When booting does your monitor do anything? If your computer is not on at all, you get a no signal message usually.

As part of the antivirus upgrade I was instructed to turn off the windows firewall and as I mentioned previously also uninstall the previous antivirus softwear. Is it possible that I could have contracted a virus in that short span?

Nothing shows on the monitor at all?
You know what it sounds like...your CPU popped. Normally, it takes a cpu, memory and videocard to boot your system to a bios screen. Bad memory or videocard will typically cause the machine to beep like crazy, and no CPU will result in nothing happening, but sometimes, the cpu will still conduct a current, but that is it.
Computer does what you are reporting.
Video card will do it on occasion too....any old parts lying around?
