i'm unable to view anything after booting. i'm only able to see the window
xp logo and that's it. i've rebooted in all safe modes, enable vga, and
debugging. don't know what to do.

Hi Edna,

What were you doing with the system prior to this happening?
Is this the first time?
Is there any error message?
Can you reach the logon screen in any mode?
If you boot safe mode, what is the last file loaded?

Edna, if you can get into Safe Mode with Command Prompt try a System
Restore from there

If that doesnt work try a Repair Install if you have a WinXP CD. Pay
close attention to Step 3
