my windows xp loads then straight afterwards the screen appers blank

By cornez_07 ·
i seem to have a problem with my computer, one day i downloaded patch for a game off a trusted website called xfire then i logged off my system..

i woke up in the morning then booted up my system.. then i left the computer on and went to collage like usual...

i came home andi noticed that my computer had a black screen with tiny lines going over my screen, so i restarted my system and window xp loads.. then as soon as it loaded my computer screen goes blank. i tryed safe mode and it fails to load because everytime it attempts to load the computer automaticly restarts all the time. and when i try bringing it back to its best state it does the same..

can someone please help me sort out this problem.. i will be very greatful

Could be

Could be several problems, including corrupted system files, or bad hardware (such as memory). Is it blue screening then rebooting or is it just rebooting? Are there any error messages?

Right as

Right after the the computer shows it's BIOS flash screen, start tapping the F8 key (it may take a few tries to get the timing right) and then choose safe mode. If you can boot up the computer, login and then Right click my computer, properties, advanced, startup and recovery, settings, uncheck "automatically restart", ok, ok. Reboot and see if that will get the error message for us. If you can not even get that far and it reboots, try removing one stick of RAM at a time (if you have 2 or more in there) and see if it continues rebooting.
