My computer has recently developed a fault.
It appears to boot up normally until it reaches the windows spash screen with the scrolling bar... After this the screen will just go black although the hard drive appears to be loading windows up in the background.

This is the first time that anything like this has happened. I changed nothing before-hand, it happened out of the blue.

I am running windows XP and my system specification is as follows.

AMD Athlon 2000XP
Gigabyte GA7VRXP motherboard KT333
23d MB ddr 2700 RAM
2X 40 GB Maxtor HDD's running stripe raid array
Ge-force 4 ti-4200 64MB

Any suggestions as to what i can do?

P.S. I have graphics issues with the P.C and it will freeze when playing games usually although the graphics card has been proven to be okay.

Most probable cause is something has changed the screen resolution to a setting outside of what your monitor can cope with

Boot into safe mode by pressing F8 at start up. get into safe mode and change screen res to a lower setting

Then reboot normally and check
