Upon starting up computer, I am always presented with an error. This error says something similar to:

"Windows startup process has been stopped to prevent damage to your computer" etc etc, and at the bottom it says:

*** STOP: 0x00000051 (0x00000003, 0x00000003, 0x00000000, 0xE11FE000)

This same error happens when I try to boot it from Windows XP CD, or boot it ANY other way. What do I do? Please help!

This is usually due to a registry error, but occassionally memory management issues as well.

Usually, it will say registry error, though.

This is the process for recovering from the registry error

It's...complex.

That said, if you are getting it while booting from CD, I would tend toward memory management. Are you comfortable on the inside of a computer?

After grounding yourself, you might have some luck by removing a memory module.

You said booting from the cd....I assume you tried last known good config and command line prompt?

Yup. I said I tried every boot option, including booting from a CD, and get the same error every time. By the way, it does say REGISTRY ERROR at the top I think..

I know you said it...just double covering....I think you need to do the link I showed you.

It is not difficult, just time consuming....print it, go slow, you'll be fine.
