Welcome to BC
:thumbsup: What happens when you turn the computer on? What screens do you see? Any errors at all?
How far along in the boot process does it go before it goes into Safemode? When you're in safemode, check the Event Viewer:

and the Device Manager:

After you reinstalled XP did you then install all your device drivers?

The black screen in XP (after the splash screen) is most often caused by video drivers. I'd suggest downloading the appropriate video drivers for your system and installing them in Safe Mode.

Do you know what video card you have? Or, what is the make and model of your computer?

Yeah, we need more info.

What I was looking for was more like "Dell Latitude D830" or "Lenovo ThinkPad SL500".
