OK, i fixed this issue, went into bios, switched to ONBOARD video... hit ESC between the system startup and the boot page... gave three options, clicked the first... and gave it a minute and it DID boot up, THEN gave the option to enable the pci hardware(nvidia 3d graphics card) also had the ethernet cable unplugged, read other threads that mention this as a SOMETIMES issue....
