OS is XP home.
A friend at work was loading some software and it started deleting files of his hard drive, he could not stop the program so he just turned his computer off.
When he rebooted the OS would not load.
As it came pre-loaded i loaned him my XP disk so he could access the recovery console to try and repair the damage.
Now it boots to the splash screen ( where the green/blue line goes across ) then the screen goes black instead of loading windows.
Has anyone any ideas on what could be causing this.
