Default XP help: Laptop won't boot

I'm on-site in Singapore and one of my co-workers is having a problem with her laptop. I've emailed our corporate help desk but lord knows when they will actually respond.

It's Thinkpad running XP. When she starts it up she'll get the Thinkpad splash screen, a cursor will appear briefly in the upper corner, then a black screen and nothing else.

I've tried to boot it up in Safe Mode but I'll get as far as it listing off the system driver stuff...it stops at one point...and just sits there.

I don't have access to an XP CD so I can't boot it that way. I would love to create a flash driver recovery disk but all the instructions I've been finding online require that I have the XP CD.

I can get into the bios and safe mode startup options but that's about it. I tried choosing "use last good configuration" but it gets hung up trying to load that up as well.

Any suggestions/ideas/help?
