On my desktop, I run Windows XP..well, I turn it on, it boots up. Well, it comes to this black screen and it says something that windows can't load normally. and it gives me this choices of Safe Mode, Safe mode with networking, safe mode with com. prompt - last known config and start windows normally..NO MATTER which one I click on, it restarts and goes back to the same black screen. What could possibly be wrong?

When the Safe Mode menu comes up is there an option to Disable Automatic Restarts? If so select it and then you should get a blue screen with an error message. Copy down the error message (including all the numbers) and post it back here.
