When I tried to start my computer, it had the Window logo appeared and then the sceen gone blank (black). I'd checked my monitor, it works fine.
Any help would be appreciated

Press F8 at bootup, get to the Advanced Boot Menu. Choose Safe Mode, does that work? Do A System Restore. If not,
Boot off of the Windows Disc Or download the Recovery Console ISO. Burn it to CD with IMGBurn Boot off of the CD and get to the Recovery Console. Here type chkdsk /R and press enter. The Check Disk utility will try and fix any file errors.
You can also download the ISO image for Seatools or Drive Fitness in my signature and burn the image to a CD using IMGBurn also in my signature and boot off of the newly created CD and run the Quick and Advanced tests on the HDD to test the integrity of the drive.
