Could be hibernate or power saving feature.
Could be a faulty PSU


Download Speedfan (The download link is to the right), and install it. Once it's installed, run the program and post here the information it shows.
The information I want you to post is the stuff that is circled in the example picture I have attached.
To make sure we are getting all the correct information it would help us if you were to attach a screenshot like the one below of your Speedfan results.

To do a screenshot please have click on your Print Screen on your keyboard.
  • It is normally the key above your number pad between the F12 key and the Scroll Lock key
  • Now go to Start and then to All Programs
  • Scroll to Accessories and then click on Paint
  • In the Empty White Area click and hold the CTRL key and then click the V
  • Go to the File option at the top and click on Save as
  • Save as file type JPEG and save it to your Desktop
  • Attach it to your next reply

Will it boot into Safe Mode?
If not does it load drivers and stops on a particular driver and if so what is it showing as the last driver it loads?

OK if that is the case then you will probably need to do a repair or parallel installation.
Since the repair earlier did not work then I believe your best bet is a parallel installation.
This will install a second Windows on your system and you can then test it to make sure it works correctly. If so then we can move your data over to the new installation but all your programs would have to be reinstalled along with all updates.
I am including the instructions for it below.

Parallel Installation of Windows XP

Boot to the Windows XP installation cd by pressing a key when the "Press any key to boot from cd" prompt appears at the top of the screen.
  • At the "Welcome to Setup" screen, press Enter to set up Windows XP.
  • Accept the License Agreement by pressing F8
  • With your current installation selected in the box, press Esc
  • Select C: Partition1 [NTFS] in the box and press Enter
  • To continue setup using this partition, press C
  • Now you should see formatting options...choose the last one, Leave the current file system intact (no changes), and press Enter
  • To use a different folder, press Esc
  • Name the folder WINDOWS0 (just type a 0 (zero)) and press Enter
The Windows installation should begin. This will install Windows to a new folder, leaving your data intact. Any programs installed on the old directory will have to be reinstalled to the new one. Device drivers will also have to be installed for all the hardware to work as it should.

The data will be located in the Documents and Settings folder (C:\Documents and Settings) under your old user account name...so when you set up the new installation, give yourself a slightly different user account name.

You can always call Microsoft with your code and they can activate it over the phone for you I believe. Once you get internet and log on then Windows should activate with no problems. Probably a lot less hassle to wait till you get internet though.

Is the Win7 the original OS that was installed on your system?
Also if he bought it then his might be a retail and the one on your system would have been a OEM
They keys won't exchange like that. If he has Win7 installed on his system with the product key then you can't install it on your system legally using his product key.
If you are using wireless and need the drivers then please give me the make and model again and I will look for it.
