Hi geeks thank you very much for taking the time to read my post as you have fixed my pc many times before I ask for your help just one more time and i thank you in advance to anyone that can help me

here is the problem im having

I booted pc about 2 days ago seemed to go throgh initial checks (mem, drives etc..) then got got a blue screen with white text in top right hand corner saying something about system registy with path something like ??/??/SOFTWARE.

I had to restart because it hung or I had to restart. It did the same thing about three times in a row then after that it just boots to the "load with dos prompt, last known settings that worked screen with count down. if you choose any it just freezes and I have to restart. I have just checked recently and the monitor is not even kicking in, it seems dead.

1. If you have Windows CD, follow the steps from here: http://icrontic.com/...pair_windows_xp

2. If you don't have Windows CD...
Download Windows Recovery Console: http://www.thecomput...om/files/rc.iso
Download, and install free Imgburn: http://www.imgburn.c...hp?act=download
Using Imgburn, burn rc.iso to a CD.
Boot to the CD...let it finish loading.
When the "Welcome to Setup" screen appears, press R to start the Recovery Console.
Then, follow the steps from here: http://icrontic.com/...pair_windows_xp, starting below this picture on page 1:
