Computer turns on, black screen, matrix image

March 9, 2011 at 17:42:56
Specs: Windows XP
The computer turns on, starts booting up then goes to black screen with lots of "O's" in columns like matrix. Cannot get into safe mode, nothing happening. It worked well yesterday, wondering if it is a virus, but I updated the virus protection before logging off.
