I was using my computer yesterday morning just fine. I go to use it yesterday afternoon and the screen went black.

I start it up, it goes through 1 or 2 black screens with numbers and whatnot on it (normal for bootup) but when it goes to the menu to unlock your computer (I have my username locked) the screen goes black before it even shows the page.

I'm using windows XP on a computer I built.

Any help would be amazing

thanks in advance
