When screen goes black

Specs: Windows XP
I got my laptop fixed by one of my friend's computer geeks and when I started it up, I had gotten another blue screen of death. When I ran the diagnostics test it failed on the dst one er something, but DELL wouldn't really help me out because the warranty is out and now when I turn it on, it loads windows but then the screen goes black.
What's happening?

And of course, you have no idea what this geek did to the laptop?

Your best bet may be to perform a system restore. This may cause you to lose any personal files currently on the drive. If you need to save personal files then try tapping F8 when you first start up and try to boot to safe mode. Once there check in Device Manager for problems.
