Hi have you tried switching computer off then back on if this dont solve problem then you need to when you switch computer on it will say press f 1 or f 3 or similar key to enter setup screen once in the setup option you will need to change the setting for startup it will probably say a:/ then c;/ you need to change this so that your c:/ drive is first once you have done this save settings then when you switch computer on it will boot up from c:/ drive and wont ask for disk.
Or on the screen that its on try pressing esc key and see if this will let you write anything as it sounds like you are in dos mode if so type c:/ then press enter then type run this should load up then as normal if dont accept this command try type exit or win if neither work type c:/ press enter screen should say c:/ type win or windows press enter the type run again let me know how you get on ok

Boot the computer until it comes to a point where you can only see the cursor. Then press CTRL + ALT + DEL. This will open the TASK MANAGER. In the Task manager, go to FILE and then click on NEW TASK and then type the following EXPLORER.EXE

This will make your desktop icons appear. Once they do appear, go to control panel and uninstall the antvir.Then restart and Install a different antivirus like Kaspersky

see your manuals and what the blink codes mean.
each PC has PDF manual that covers that.
blink codes are BIOS warnings.
to tell you what catastrophic failure happend
like low power
bad memory
processor dead
GPU dead.
and more, some have 12 errors possible (newer)

if the BIOS screens are dead, its lost power.
or one of the above.

I think it's pretty clear he messed something up. Try checking the VGA cable (the blue one) that's hooked up to both you computer and monitor. Check if any pins are bent or broken. If not, make sure they're securely plugged in and try booting up. If it still doesn't work, then I'm afraid he may have knocked some connection in the motherboard out of whack. I hope it's just a slight VGA problem. Hope this helps!
