It maybe sounds a little like a problem in explorer.

try to start you computer up, press F8 within the windows loader appears. then select :start up the same way as last time it worked.

now it should work. if not then format the pc.
if you have a lot of important stuff on it you can download the ubuntu livecd and use it the get all of your stuff out of the disk.

hope that works.

Black screen


Start the laptop in safe mode and run System Restore
After that I will suggest you to update your drivers just go the site of your Laptop manufacture. Once there enter the model number OR service tag of the laptop then request driver (usually found in the web site's "Support Section"). There you should be able to find all the drivers for your model laptop
If this didn't help you then it seems that there is registry problem with your OS. so simply get the Intel software partner Reginout to fix all the registry issues which are causing black screen.

Screen turns off


Please get the RAM checked for the system, as the multicolor lines normally appear when the RAM goes faulty and starts heating up faster than normal.

It also affects the RAM being able to pull the data from the system.

Laptop boots up intermittently or screen freezes


basing on the information you have given here are the possible solutions:
remove any external device connected to your system (printer, external hard drive and others) if removing this does not work and still gets a blank screen with blinking cursor try to go to safe mode with networking. if successful try to download the driver for your video adapter.

when you try to start the computer , do get anything on the screen like a logo? when does the blank screen occurs, is it during the turning ON of the computer or during the windows xp logo appears on the screen?

a blank screen could be caused by the following: defective video adapter, corrupted video driver, defective memory, unknown device causing the issue like the hard drive, optical drive or other peripheral installed inside the computer.

try also using an external monitor
