    My Medion PC running Windows XP loads past the windows loading screen then simply goes black but the computer is still on and the screen is still active. My dual boot of Ubuntu works perfectly as does safe mode. Ive had this issue for a while but it used to turn on after i rebooted it but now it only turns on occasionally. Also I'm almost certain its got nothing to do with my hardware. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Boot from the CD, wait for it to load, press "R" to get to the recovery console.

    Type chkdsk /r and press ENTER. It will run for quite some time (could be a couple of hours), just leave it till it finishes.
