I have an HP Pavilion a420n that I just did a system recovery on because I was having computer problems. I do not have recovery disks so my recovery was performed with the partition that is installed on the computer. This computer came with Windows XP Home Edition.

My problem is that I performed the system recovery (which took only 15 minutes), then the computer restarts, shows Windows XP Home Edition image then goes to a black screen with a blinking cursor in the top left corner.

I have tried to press Ctrl-Alt-Del, but this does nothing. My compter did not come with system disks for Windows XP either.

Can anyone help me solve this problem? This computer was very expensive when I purchased it, but it is now 6 years old.

Sounds funny "Expensive"... anyway here are we try to run windows in safe mode for checking any problem in it.. by restarting it & press F8 button to show screen with list of option.

Goto Safe Mode & troubleshoot from there. If nothing happen then run "Windows Recovery Console" by inserting your bootable CD.

When your windows repaired then it will boot correctly.

Hope this work..
