Having problems with your PC Desktops ?

My PC will not start properly - when I turn the computer on, I get the Windows XP start-up screen, and then the screen just goes black. I can see the cursor, but when I move the mouse nothing happens. I have tried to start it in safe mode, but it even that won't work. I also tried re-installing Windows, to no avail. I would really appreciate any assistance on this. Thank you, Sarah
