Hello. My pc has been made useless. I was working away then just like that my monitor goes off to standby. My system was stil up and running. Normally if i press any key a couple of times the monitor comes back on. I re-booted and the memory test starts, black background, white writing as normal then just a blue screen with the mouse pointer. Then it stays like that.

I also booted into safe mode and thats the same. If i press ctrl/alt/del there are no programs in the box, no Explorer nothing? can anyone help?

Athlon XP 1800
Over 600mb MEM
64mb MX 440 Nvidea GCard
LG 17" Monitor

Thanks for your time.

Try booting with the system disk and see if you can do a repair / reinstall for Windows.
