    A friend has a windows x-p and can not get it on. She shut it down over night and tried to start it and just gets black screen.

    I started your own thread for you here, as it certainly had nothing to do with the thread in which you posted.

    It does look similar to the problem you are having with your own computer. The difference is that yours will not even turn on, but hers powers up but nothing shows on the screen?

    edmund5612, it is good etiquette in a forum when posting to tell whether the computer is a desktop or laptop. All we know is that it runs XP.
    Please state the brand and exact model so we have a clue what hardware is involved.
    How old is the computer? Has it ever been cleaned? Do any lights come on (keyboard, mouse, power button, etc)?
