Was working on my desktop (windows xp) and the screen went black. Tried to get it back on, restart, on/off button, finally could see white background, with icons, but soon it just went black. Tried to restore active desktop-no result.
Got it back on, using on/off button, started Norten full system scan. Screen is black, but computer is running.
Really need some help!

Had a similar problem with my system. I replaced the computers power supply and its been fine ever since. Swap it with another if you have an old one around or borrow the supply from a friends computer to test and see if it fixes your problem before replacing it.
