does the bios screen come up? If the bios loads, you may still have something to work with. It's just a matter of getting the XP installation disk and either running a repair or reinstalling the entire operating system.

I suspect I may have a hardware problem, but I really didn't know where to post a question, so I will start here. I have a 6 year old Dell destop running Win xp home edition. On a recomendation, I ran a check disk scan from the control panel prompt. The scan ran on the next restart, after the scan, the screen went blank. It will not boot. I tried booting from safe mode and all other options, no boot. Unfortunatly I don't have a recovery disk. Is it worth fixing? Thanks for your help.
