When starting my computer everything is O.K. untill the XP screen appears with the progress bar moving. It then goes to a black screen and nothing happens for over 1 minute. HELP.

Have you tried safemode? hit F8 at startup...
You could check the device manager for a conflict..

Did you install any new hard/soft ware lately?

Or you could try a repair use your install disk and select repair during the install ...

if also you can get into safe mode,try a system restore,if that fails try/run/type sfc /scannow
you will be asked tom insert xp cd,(Dont Forget the space between sfc and /scannow.
