Start your XP. keep pressing F8, it will show you Recovery option.

select "Last Known good Configuration" option.

if it not works the select "Safe mode" option.

After successful login, restart your XP in normally.

Is it a notebook?
The sceen may be set to connect to an external screen once XP has loaded.
Hold the Fn key down then press the F key with the screen icon (probably F3)

lets find the reason.

are you able to see something on the screen when booting? POST screen, win logo, etc.
if not then check the cable and display/monitor itself (test different cable/monitor, or use those on another PC)
if yes try to boot some live CD to see if you are able to see here. If you can then probably windows has problem with display adapter, maybe driver? You can boot installation CD and run a sfc /scannow command to verify drivers and also chkdsk c: /f

btw are you able to boot into safe mode without problems?

POST boot screen
windows startup and then blank
or no single display on monitor.

Unplug the PC from AC power for 2+ minutes to allow the MotherBoard to reset.
Try it again, and post your results.

do you have a separate graphics card you can try in the system?
Or, can you move the hard disk to another PC with *identical* hardware?
either option should identify the whether it's a hardware issue.

You may want to consider an XP Repair Install:

However, if the PC has valuable data on it, I'd back it up first by hooking it up as a slave to another PC and copying the data from there.  Can also be done in a USB cradle, but it will be slower than using a SATA or IDE cable - depends how much is on it...
