About a week ago i was on my computer and it ran low on disk space so i clicked the bubble and cleaned some temporary files. But i had to go out and i couldnt leave the computer so i cancelled it. Next time i went on the computer is started up and had all the intel logo and stuff but no windows xp screen.. only a blank screen after boot.

Can anyone help? I cant get into safe mode either? :eek::(

Hi, have you tried the XP install disk, I had a similar issue with win 2k and putting the disk in at bootup gave me some options to repair windows. This worked for me. Good luck

If you have access to a second desktop, you may want to try taking out the faulty hard drive and making it a slave drive on a second machine, boot up the second machine and then do a disk check on the drives that are on the faulty hard drive. It could be that the disk check will fix the problem and when you put back in the other machine it works just fine.. thats the theory anyway!!
