Windows xp black screen problem

Use the Last Known Good Configuration feature, first restart the computer by pressing [Ctrl][Alt][Delete]. When you see the message Please select the operating system to start or hear the single beep, press [F8] to display the Windows Advanced Options menu. Select the Last Known Good Configuration item from the menu and press [Enter].

Keep in mind that you get only one shot with the Last KnownGood Configuration feature. In other words, if it fails to revive your WindowsXP on the first attempt, the backup copy is also corrupt.
Use system utility software like RegInOut after restarting windows.

Most of the services on my vista have been disabled and i am unable to start them again . this happened after my laptop hanged and i had to start it by the last best known settings option .

You must have logged into safe mode before running last known good configuration, that is the reason why it has loaded safe mode settings when you chose last known good configuration.

You can be trying to do a system restore (start - type system restore - right click on system restore and click on run as administrator) and choose a restore point when you know your computer was working fine (before 2 or 3 days) and this should take care of your problem.

My asus computer has just crashed, it wont open the vista it says windows could not start, a recent modification could be the cause of this problem, how do i get it started

press f8 key at early boot and choose "safe mode". if that boots, "last known good configuration" should get rid of bad added driver, if that won't work go to help and support in safe mode and pick an earlier restore point for when it did work.

Having problems with "Last Best Known configuration" black screen

First of all, make sure your keyboard is securely plugged into the computer.
Can you boot into Windows using last best known configuration? Do this if you can, (otherwise use safe mode) and Go to Start, Right click My computer, click manage, click device manager, Click + sign next to keyboards and right click your keyboard and select properties. If your keyboard is not working properly start the troubleshooter and work through it.
It may be time to update the drivers for your keyboard.. Make sure you go to windows update
and downlaod and install all critical and security updates, and look to see if there are any keyboard updates offered to you there.
If that doesn't solve the problem, you may have to follow the steps given in this tutorial
and go to the manufacturer's website to download drivers and update them.
If this doesn't fix the problem, take your keyboard and put it on a different computer and see if the same error message appears. In that case your keyboard may be at fault.

I hope this resolves your problem...
If I have managed to answer your question, please take a moment to rate this post...thanks!!
