I have a Dell Latitude laptop and I have Windows XP. I went to turn on my computer last night and it started up but then I just got a black screen with a cursor. I tried everything I thought was possible and nothing worked. The Welcome screen doesn't show up, It's just the black screen with a movable cursor(That doesn't flash). I tried pressing the SHIFT key 5 times and nothing happened. Please help me fix this problem. I need my laptop.
