Windows won't boot

Hi! I've got this problem:

Last week, the screen started to blink, some strange lines appeared and everything froze. I had to turn the computer off and on again and everything worked fine. This happened a few times last week.

Now all of a sudden the computer won't start. When I turn on the computer, Windows XP logo with the loading bar shows up. But then (when the blue screen with user accounts should appear) the screen goes blank and some some strange deformations appear (see the attachment).

Only the safe-mode works. Strangely, after I went to safe-mode yesterday to make a copy of the most important files, I restarted the computer and Windows boot successfully and I thought everything was fine. Unfortunately now the blinking screen is back and the Windows do not load.


How can I solve this?

Windows won't load - blinking screen
You have posted the same problem in Tech Support Guy at 6.58pm 4 Oct.
Help was offered in that forum at 7.58pm to which you have not yet replied.
Working on two forums at the same time is unadvisable, as following one set of advice on one, and another piece of advice on another, does not
always work well.
PLEASE ENSURE that on which ever forum you pursue the matter, the post on the other is not just left open, for people to waste their time with suggestions.

The Windows started normally after being logged in safe-mode for 20 minutes and restarted the computer. I'll try chkdsk first and then SFC /scannow, like Macboatmaster advised on the other forum (techguy). I'll let you know how it worked.

@Macboatmaster
We will further discuss it on the other forum. :D

I also suggested booting to Safe Mode.

This is in my opinion best dealt with on ONE forum. I will withdraw from this one and continue on Tech Support Guy.
