Re: Power is on but I have a blank screen
Sounds like the hard drive crashed. Make sure the hard drive is seated back in properly, then hit the power button and listen closely. You should be able to hear it spin when the hard drive engages. If it does engage, you should hear it spin smoothly, if there are any clicking or dull thumking sounds, then it's shot and needs replacing.

try rebooting in safe mode and do a restore if that doesn't work probably going to have to reinstall your OS,,, if it does let you in run scan disk under properties by right clicking on hard drive under my computer. if any of this works make sure your anti virus is up to date

The OS-loading screen is a stong indicator that thee is nothing wrog with your hardware, but it is a driver issue. You need to press F8 as your computer starts up and enter SAFE-MODE. Windows 7 Using the F8 Method:
Restart your computer.
When the computer starts you will see your computer's hardware being listed. When you see this information start to gently tap the F8 key on your keyboard repeatedly until you are presented with the Windows 7 Advanced Boot Options screen as shown in the image below.
