This will get you to the Advance Boot Options Menu.
One of the options will be Safe Mode
Using your arrow buttons scroll down to Safe Mode and then click Enter
The system will boot using the generic drivers to run the system.
Let me know how it works then.

Please follow the next steps in order:
Click Start, then Run (Search In Vista)
Type cmd, and click Ok
At the prompt in the command window that opens, type fsutil dirty query ?: and press Enter (Where ? is the letter of the drive to queried)
Does the result of this indicate the drive is "Dirty"?
To unset the Dirty Bit
- If you have Spyware Doctor installed, uninstall it.
- If you have ZoneAlarm installed, open it, click the "Overview" tab, then select "Preferences", and UNcheck the "Protect ZA Client" check box.
Substitute the drive letter for the drive your want to check for the ? in the following commands. Please note the spaces.
- chkntfs /d ..... (This will reset autocheck options to default...will come back invalid on some installations)
- chkntfs /c ?: ..... (This will allow checking the specified drive )
- chkntfs /x ?: ..... (The x switch tells Windows to NOT check the specified drive on the next boot)
This next step is important as this is where the Dirty Bit will be unset.
Substitute the drive letter for the drive your want to check for the ? in the following commands.
Click Start, then Run, type cmd in the Open box and click "Ok". At the command prompt, type the following, pressing "Enter" after each one: (Again, note the spaces.)
- chkdsk /f /r ?: ..... (To manually run a full chkdsk operation on the specified drive)
- Y ..... (To accept having it run on the next boot)
Finally, when the chkdsk operation has completed, type fsutil dirty query ?:, press "Enter", and Windows will confirm that the Dirty Bit is not set on that drive.
Reboot again and see if chkdsk still runs on startup.

I would suggest a Repair Installation on the XP
If you have Win 7 you can do a startup repair and hopefully that should resolve the issue.

This will allow you to repair your Win 7 installation and keep all of your personal user account files, settings, and programs
