Default Black Screen of Death

So this morning was I booted up fine and plugged in my printer and started to print a paper and left the comp for like 2 mins while the print job was going. When i came back there were only 3 pages of the paper printed out and my screen had gone black.

I thought weird and restarted. When trying to restart I get the WIndows Xp screen with the blue loading bar underneath and then my monitor light goes from green to orange. I restarted again and was able to load windows in safe mode but not normally. DOes anyone know what might have happend. I'm thinking that my HD might have just gone kaputz on me but I don't know why that would happen at such a random time. Please help!

I wasn't sure if it was a software or HW problem so I thought I would post in both and then close the other one accordingly. Sorry
