Windows XP is in an Endless Reboot Cycle

Alright, about two weeks I started noticing that my computer was randomly restarting every now and then. I'd be in the middle of a conversation online and it would simply restart. I disregarded this as a random, acceptable error. Then, as if out the blue, my computer randomly restarted one day, only to be caught in a reboot cycle that never went past the Windows XP loading bar.

I hit f5 on the next reboot and ran the standard 'most recent settings', 'safe mode', all to no avail. I then attempted to use the 'disable automatic restart at system failure' option, and for a moment it appeared as if this had at least halted the restart scourge.

Unfortunately, after the Windows XP loading bar appeared I was presented with a blue screen which told me two things: unmountable boot volume and this windows error - 0x86F599E0 (0xC000006, 0x000000, 0x000000)

Alright, so, what the [bleep] does that mean, and is there anything remotely feasible that I can do to solve my little..problem. I'm assuming it's all due to a corrupted harddrive.

Help me, Geekstogo, you're my only hope :whistling:

I have my Windows XP installation CDs, but it seems that the computer isn't even reading them when it goes on its endless reboot run. I've tried 'most recent setting that worked', but that only brings me into the same cycle.

Does anyone know what Windows error - 0x86F599E0 (0xC000006, 0x000000, 0x000000) means?
