Black Screen after Windows Loads

  1. So... I have a Toshiba Satellite p35 notebook. The only thing I've added to it is a 512 mb memory module. It has served me well for at least two years, with the exception of overheating. My computer won't bring up the welcome screen ( where you type your password in). It will start up, windows xp loads, then all I get is a black screen with my mouse. I've plugged it up to another monitor, so it's not a monitor issue. I've tried safe mode, every type of boot, and last known good config. What should I do? I lost my recovery disks, but I just ordered it. I'm hoping and praying it will make my computer work like it did before. I want to play WoW!!!
