Interrupting an update should be reparable using disk, but you seem certain there is no POST which may confirm hardware failure.

Try another monitor.

If same persists, are fans running and LED's on PC lit? Which?

If not, try another power supply.

If so, power down to carefully pull out the RAM sticks to see if mobo starts beeping upon restart.

If beeps, try reinstalling video card.

I am not a hardware expert so others can refine these rough steps.
