    I recently left my PC in my flat for the summer and when I came back to it 7 weeks later to turn it on Windows XP wouldn't boot up.

    I turned on the PC and the Windows XP Home loading screen came up but it was all funny colours and then after that screen where it usually asks me for my password the screen just went black except for some strange lines of colours across the screen. At first I thought it was the monitor but I have since tried that on someone else's PC. The PC will now occasionally boot up in Safe Mode but that only happens once every 10 trys or so and when it does it still has the strange colour scheme all over the monitor. I have no idea what could possibly be wrong whether it be a loose connection in the machine or something. Any sort of help on whats wrong will be greatly appreciated.

    Well, if it's not the monitor, it's probably the graphics.
    Do you use a graphics card or intergrated geaphics?

    Its ok now I took it round to my friends house and apparently it was the RAM and he put a new 256MB in and it works fine now. Cheers though.
