Shut the computer down 3 days ago and it has not booted since. When I press the power button I get a quick DELL page that briefly gives a F2 or F12 option... goes directly to the normal Windows XP page with the loading status bar. That page goes away and you think the thing is going to load and work as usual.... but it doesn't. I have a blank black screen with a white arrow cursor that works. Nothing has happened past that, not even after several minutes of sitting there.
I have looked around in the settings directory that I can access by hitting (I think) F2 and reset everything to default.
I booted the computer from the Drivers and Utilities CD and have ran several (I believe every) test. All say PASSED and it has given me NO Errors.
I need some direction with this problem because I am not by any means a computer whiz

Looks like an issue with either display or system is overheating. Please try the below steps.
1. Shut down the computer 2. Keep on tapping F8 key as us press the Power button to turn on the computer. 3. Choose safe mode using the arrow keys on the keyboard and hit Enter Key 4. Stay on the safe mode to see if the screen is going blank, if not 5. A system restore should help to fix the issue. Let me know!
your computer your laptop will just shut itself down and get a black
screen unexpectedly, which is due to: power overload in theAC adapter,
overheated processor / clogged fan, overheated battery, pushing the
power button, Windows telling it to, the BIOS telling it to, loose wires
(especially the power cord), or intermittent short circuits. The most
common problem is cooling. the battery should be removed from the laptop
and allowed to cool to room temperature before attempting to use again.
Turn off notebook. Remove the battery. Press Power button. Notebook should start working. Wait for 15 secs. If the screen still blank press Power button and hold it for approx. 4 seconds until notebook is powered off. Then press power button again. Bingo, problem should be solved.

You may be right , the harddrive on the system may have gone bad.
You can run a diagnostics on the hardrive,shut down the computer, and then Press the Fn+ power button at the same time , it would initate the diagnostics.
