I shut down the computer the night before, then the next morning I turned it back on. It go's through the "post" test, then you see the Windows XP screen with bar wave going across. After that I just get a black screen.

Try reseatting and or replacing the hard drive data cable. Does it happen repeatedly in normal mode? Try booting in safemode and see if the problem persist.

 

In normal mode,

 

Try downloading Speccy and then install the program.  To post and publish a snapshot of your PC.
. In the Menu bar, click File -> Publish Snapshot
. Click Yes > then Copy to Clipboard
. On your next reply, right-click on a empty space and click Paste on reply box then click Post.

 

Download MiniToolBox and run the program. Select
List Last 10 Event Viewers, List Installed Programs and List Users, Partitions and Memory Size then click Go.
A notepad will open then copy-paste the report on your next reply.

On my HP Compaq Presario S6020WM computer that you were helping me with. I have diagnostic with bad memory. Have put in the old stick that came with it, and the computer boots up every time. Four years ago I upgraded it with 1GB of Crucial memory, and it has a life time warranty. They are sending replacements.

 

 

 

PS. Sorry took so long to reply, Lost ISP

Thanks for your time & support
