Turn on your computer, as soon as you press the power button, begin tapping the F8 key. A menu should come up. Using your arrow keys navigate to the safe mode option.

If it is booting to normal mode, click start - run and type msconfig.
Click on Boot.ini tab and Check Safeboot. Click Apply and Close or OK. It will restart the computer to safe mode. Remember to uncheck Safeboot to make the computer to boot in normal mode again.

SOURCE: as soon as the computer is turned on i get a black

Hello

What these messages are actually telling you is that the computer can't see the hard drive. Now the real question is why? The best way to solve this would be take the hard drive out and slave to another system. This would tell you if the hard drive is actually spinning, and if all your data is retrieveable. If it can be seen in another system then my guess is that your drive has viruses corrupting the Windows startup files. If it can't be seen then the hard drive will have to go to a professional for data recovery.

Thanks
