Or you can use this method.
Run CHKDSK /F from an elevated (Run as adminstrator) Command Prompt
When it tells you it can't do it right now - and asks you if you'd like to do it at the next reboot - answer Y (for Yes) and press Enter. Then reboot and let the test run. It may take a while for it to run, but keep an occasional eye on it to see if it generates any errors. See "CHKDSK LogFile" below in order to check the results of the test.
Elevated Command Prompt:
Go to Start and type in "cmd.exe" (without the quotes)
At the top of the Search Box, right click on Cmd.exe and select "Run as administrator"
Go to Start and type in "eventvwr.msc" (without the quotes) and press Enter
Expand the Windows logs heading, then select the Application
log file entry.
Double click on the Source column header.
Scroll down the list until you find the Chkdsk entry (wininit for Windows 7)
Then run system file checker. HOWEVER SEE THIS FIRST
Type cmd in search
Right click on cmd (do not hit enter)
In cmd type sfc /scannow. This is the method usually used to fix corrupt files

If the result is OK -ie: files replaced or repaired 100%
and the system restore did not work, try this

You should be able to get the latest video and other drivers from there. If you can boot up into safe mode and get to the desktop then go to add and remove programs and uninstall the video drivers....Then see if you can reboot the pc normally. if so then go to the link above and download and install the latest video drivers and reboot the pc. Post back.

<br />I did do that, though I'll try it again. And I did the scan and it just closed after telling me I needed cd2, even though I was only provided 1 CD when I bought the computer. And the CD title is microsoft windows xp media center version 2005 with update rollup 2. I don't think the system restore did anything as I still have the blue lines.<br />
I'm not sure what you've done, so lets do this step by step. after you uninstall the drivers, reboot normally and see if it boots up without issue. Your resolution will be off but that's ok. The point is, is to see if removing the drivers fixes the issue. The sfc /scannow asked for the second disk because it was looking for service pack information......The OS is from 2005.. Much has changed if you use windows update. : )
