it may be you have ram, or disk problems
dow<nload UBCD, make the cd - and boot from it
run memtest86+ for ram - 1 full pass
run disk diag for your disk brand - hdd section

I have run chkdsk, sfc, and spinrite to check hd. No problems found. As soon as you click on the Computer icon, all you get is a blank white box.
