Too many reasons for that to fail.

The thing to try in safe mode is to set the video mode down to something tame like 800x600 and try again.

There are too many reasons for this common machine to land at a service counter today. They tend to work for a few years then blammo. I've tracked many down to power supplies, motherboards, CPUs and more. No recurring cause really.

You've left out a lot of what parts are in the PC so keep writing.

good. that means you can re-install your video drivers from computer manufacturer, or the graphics chip supplier.

While in safe mode use msconfig>startup and uncheck everything.
Restart in normal mode.
