I'd suggest that you revert back to the original registry setting and test to see if that's the cause (if it doesn't do it anymore, then it's likely that the registry edit is causing it).
Could you please post a link to the article where you found the registry edit?
In general, a black screen boot on XP usually involves either a corruption in the boot sector of your drive, a failing hard drive, or bad/corrupt video drivers. I'd suggest visiting the website of the manufacturer of your hard drive and downloading a diagnostic utility from there (usually free). I'd also suggest downloading the latest version of your video drivers, uninstalling the current ones (in both Add/Remove Programs and Device Manager), then rebooting and installing the new one's.
