My laptop was working one minute and then the next it won't. When I boot the computer it shows the Window Loading screen with little blue bar, then it goes to black screen.

I've attempted several times to boot in safe mode but I end up with black screen and the 'safe mode' words in all 4 corners and the arrow pointer. I put in my Windows Disc and I've had the computer boot from the disc but that leads me to a blue screen with a 0x0000007E error and recommends I boot in safe mode (which I can't).

I know the solution is to reinstall Windows XP with the disc or run a repair with the disc, but how can I do that if I can't get my computer to boot with the disc or in safe mode? I can't get to a C: prompt. I can't get it to restore to lasted working settings. All options lead to black screen or blue screen with error.

Anyone have any insight? Computer repairs shops, Circuit City to name, is asking upwards of $300 to fix this problem. Please tell me I can do it myself. Thanks

Thanks for reply but...
I'm not able to go into windows to click on Start or Control panel or anything.
When I turn on (boot) my computer - it shows the Windows start up screen, and then goes completely black. And when I press F8 none of the options for Safe Mode work either.
