It is likely your power supply went out. If you have a spare, switch it out and see if it works. If it still does the same thing, it could mean you have a dead processor, or motherboard. But start by testing the power supply.

Thanks for you quick reply, well i managed some how to boot up my pc with a bootable cd, but before it got to the windows desktop it displayed the following, verifying DMI pool data and thats where it stayed nothing else happened, so i decided to format it which went fine windows xp loaded fine but then yesterday the same thing happed but this time i was playing a game when monitor turned off and green light started flashing. i hope i didnt make things worse by formatting it :rolleyes:

That error is indicative of a hardware problem, but you'll have to do some troubleshooting to determine the exact culprit. The links on the first page of this Google search will give you several suggestions; try them and let us know the results.

The pages in the Google search link in my last post have many troubleshooting suggestions; please try as many of those as possible and let us know the full, exact, and detailed results.

A word of advice before you dive in, though:
Be aware that the DMI Pool error is (with the exception of corrupted boot files) indicative of a low-level hardware problem, and the error itself is generated by the BIOS, not by the operating system software. This means that unless you are comfortable with and familiar with troubleshooting at a hardware/BIOS level, your safest bet would be to get someone qualified/experienced to help you out. It's easy to overlook something as simple as a broken pin on a data cable's connnector; and just as easy to make a (wrong) change in the BIOS which makes matters worse.
