Does the screen simply go black or does it stop putting a signal to the monitor?  There is a virus variant that can cause this behavior.  Please see the below link for a description and suggested resolution:  http://www.techiechips.com/windows-vista-windows-xp-blank-screen-after-login-version-2/

It may be an issue with your video card driver.  If you can get to safemode, you can try rolling back video driver from the device manager or downloading the newest drivers from the manufacturer's website and installing them from here.  Should this not work, Nobus's suggestion of running and sfc or repair install will be the next logical step.

update:

sfc would not run      sfc /scannow   at the command box

unit does start in safe mode with f8 key.   last known comfiguration does not do anything.  used system restore and took it back a month, same thing.      tried the dvi side of the graphics card and it does not work on a dvi monitor.

reseated all memory and connections included graphics card.

now i am backing up the files before i go any further.

i am thinking of getting another graphics card same  type.

thanks

that seems like a corrupt OS to me - did you try the repair install also?
and no malware??  that can obstruct everything too..
