Do you have a recovery cd? that came with your system, id boot from it and run a recovery. Otherwise if you have windows xp installation cd, do what is called a "repair install". Follow the instructions on this link below:

read the WHOLE page and follow the instructions carefully if you don't want to lose data, a mistake can be costly.

Good luck!

    im sorry i forgot to mention, make sure there is no floppy or any other disk inserted into your system while you are booting. Also make sure that in your bios, the Hard Drive as the first in the boot order sequence.

Try starting up in safe mode (press F8 just before the Windows logo pops up. If you can see your desktop this time, I would remove and reinstall your video driver.

I have an ees pc 4 gb i can see the windows xp logo when i turn it on and hear all the sounds but then my screen is blank but i still hear windows help i'm not a computer whiz


Some systems may take a bit to boot at times. Windows has to do a number of functions during startup. Have you tried just leaving it run after you see the windows logo and wait several minutes? If not, give it a try. If after about 5 minutes you see nothing, get back to me.
Since the logo appears, you have video. Although the screen goes blank after this mostly means that Windows is still loading and has to perform some tasks and possible system correction issues. Let it run like I mantioned above and see what happens. Thanks
