When I connect my computer after the windows XP screen I get a black screen and the computer never starts.
When I go to the safe mode the computer works normally, yesterday I did the system restore and the computer worked normally, today I had the same problem and even after system restore never worked.
Can somebody help me?

Hello Rocky. Welcome to Bleeping Computer.

256KB Ram

I really do hope you mean 256MB :thumbsup: .

Do you have your Windows XP disks? It looks like we will have to resort to arepair install.

However, if you do not have your disks, we can still try to troubleshoot the problem, though I must say it's a long shot. If you have a portable drive to transfer files over from another computer, that would be helpful.

With Regards,

As a first start, try this. Insert the Windows XP CD into the CD drive, and then restart the computer. Click to select any options that are required to start the computer from the CD drive if you are prompted. When the "Welcome to Setup" screen appears, press R to start the Recovery Console. If you have a dual-boot or multiple-boot computer, select the installation that you must access from the Recovery Console. When you are prompted, type the Administrator password. If the administrator password is blank, just press ENTER.

Type: chkdsk /r

It's important to have a space before the "/". To exit the Recovery Console and restart the computer, type exit at the command prompt, and then press ENTER.
The power of accurate observation is commonly called cynicism by those who haven't got it.
