I am sorry, but we need more details to be able to help you.
What is your graphic card?
CPU? PSU? Exact windows version?

Does your computer seem to be still running when the "black screen" appears? If so, it may be an software issue...

Can you do an re-install? Do you have a boot disk?

Also, when does exactly this "black screen" happens? Right after you open the computer or when the windows logo appears?

It happens even when in stand by mode or evenn when the hard drive is off or on i can do re install but it would be extremely difficult by the way im not on the computer im on a Android tablet

Have you tried Windows Repair from the XP Installation disk? It just repairs damaged files and doesn't delete your files and programs...

I dont have one but when the computer was workin it would say "System Restore " when i used to start it up, but i highly doubt system repair would fix anything with my monitor

So do you have any idea if it is the Monitor or the Computer that is broken?

Try your monitor on a other PC.

If its the monitor that is broken, the only solution is to get it repaired, since it is very difficult to take it apart and assemble it back without breaking it or getting toxic materials on you...

You don't need to take a other PC apart, you can just unplug the video cable at the rear and plug this "broken" screen.

The video cable is the cable that is between your PC and your screen, so your PC can tell your screen to display things...
