ok so what happens if you put you backup disc in? I doubt if it will load as you do not have the program? anyway put your disk in and change to the cd drive.
do a dir on the drive are there any exe files listed?
Was the new keyboard the only thing you changed?

nope. still sitting on black screen, still no noise other than fan.

*edit
The keyboard was the only thing i changed, and if it wasnt for spybot tea timer kicking in again after start-up, nothing else would have been changed. ( I hate it n im never using it again.)

Nope, no luck. same screen, ending in mup.sys, and esc does nothing.

ok c:>cd\windows enter
c:\windows>scanreg /fix(note the space) Enter
The only other option I can think of if this does not work is try andr replace the NTLDR and the ntdectet
but not hopeful :whistling:
