    After the system "load" screen (boot screen) Windows is loading the drivers it needs to run the system. The screen going black may indicate that a driver has become corrupt. May be time to do a repair installation.

    Insert XP CD and boot up with it.

    For a repair installation continue past the repair console then u will get a message saying
    "a version of windows already exists on this machine, do you want to do a repair installation."

    Press R to do a repair install

    Hopefully you'll be given the option to do a repair. This option is not alway available. I don't know the reason why but I only see it very now and then.
