Alright everyone, I got a problem. So recently I reinstalled xp pro sp3. I downloaded 2 drivers, a vga video driver, and a realtek audio driver. Downloaded other things as the day went on needed for my computer. Restarted my computer, then after the welcome message, a blank screen came up. I could still use the mouse and use task manager, but that's it. I have tried reinstalling xp but it doesn't do any good. So if anyone knows a solution to fix that, I'd be happy to know it. Thanks #edit I had the thread title: Blank screen on startup, but I think an moderator or someone changed it to "black" and I don't know why. It's certainly not black. It's the default background picture it get's stuck at, with nothing on it except my mouse cursor.
