This morning my computer went on the fritz. I made it past the bios detection and the black screen that says "Windows XP" but from there all I saw was a screen full of blue and black vertical lines. I tried a blind end task, which took away the blue lines and I could hear Windows starting up finally but the screen was totally a jumbled mess. Is this a virus?? What should I do?

Welcome inhymnilive <_<

Try this, restart you computer and while its booting keep tapping the F8 key. This should bring up a menu. Choose "Last known good configuration". Let us know if it works.
