If you need to backup any files then please repost before trying the step below because it will erase the harddrive completely....
****Also do not try this step without first getting a second opinion from one of the trusted GeeksToGo techies, I myself have used the DBAN Boot and Nuke, but I don't like the idea of telling someone that isn't a computer nerd like me
to use this software.*****
To Completely Erase all of the data on harddrive go to the website below and download the file you need(either Boot and Nuke CD or USB and Floppy version)http://dban.sourceforge.net/
DBAN Boot and Nuke FAQhttp://keith.geeksto...bootandnuke.htm
Use the program to correct all the errors on the harddrive and then after it completes you will be able to reinstall WinXP and have it working once again.
Additional help can be provided for using DBAN Boot and Nuke, but I am waiting to see if a trusted techie from this site posts whether or not they believe you should use this program to fix your situation.
