Have you tried to tap F8 and go to the boot menu where you chose Safe Mode
If that doesn't work then repeat and try Last Known Good Configuration

Do you have a Genuine Microsoft XP disk?

Let's try a few steps and see if we can figure something out.
Run hard drive diagnostics: http://www.tacktech....ay.cfm?ttid=287
Make sure, you select tool, which is appropriate for the brand of your hard drive.
Depending on the program, it'll create bootable floppy, or bootable CD.
If downloaded file is of .iso type, use ImgBurn: http://www.imgburn.com/ to burn .iso file to a CD (select "Write image file to disc" option), and make the CD bootable.
NOTE. If your hard drive is made by Toshiba, unfortunately, you're out of luck, because Toshiba doesn't provide any diagnostic tool.
Thanks to Broni for the instructions

If you are not comfortable doing this then download the SeaTools diagnostics as it seems to work with the majority of the drives.

Follow the instructions and burn the ISO file to a cd.
The program will run because it does not depend on windows to run. It runs from the cd.
you will have to change the boot sequence in the bios in order to boot from the cdrom.

Shaffer, I just need to clarify, you want me to download the seatools diagnostic right? Save it on my computer and burn it to a cd? Is this the right link?

Follow the instructions from my post #8
That should make the cd bootable depending if you download the iso file or not.
