What happens when you try to get into Safe Mode?
The next most common issue for black screen hangs is a problem with the hard drive.
You can try these commands from the Recovery Console ( http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/tutorials/how-to-install-the-windows-xp-recovery-console/
They will attempt to correct issues with the File System on your hard drive.
If that does not fix it, then I'd suggest a bootable diagnostic available from the manufacturer of your hard drive. There's a list of the most common one's in this thread: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/28744/hard-drive-installation-and-diagnostic-tools/
The diagnostic will tell you if your hard drive is starting to fail (or not).
