Backing up would be wise but a repair just does a non-destructive install of XP system files, hardware, etc .. doesn't hurt anything else on the system.

Okay, I did the windows xp repair install.

and now my computer will not start windows.

it gets passed the bios, then passed my ide card loading up then past the page with all the info on it. But when the windows page with the blue bar scrolling across it should appear it gives me the blue screen of death.

I have tried booting using
last know working option,
safe mode with networking
safe mode.

all attempts end with the blue screen.

here is the info on the blue screen

A problem has been detected and windows has been shut down to prevent damage to your computer.

If this is the first time you've seen this stop error screen, restart your computer. If this screen appears again, fallow these steps:

Check to be sure you have adequate disk space. If a driver is identified in the stop message,disable the driver or check with the manufacturer for drive updates. Try changing video adapters.

Check with your hardware vendor for any BIOS updates. Disable BIOS memory options such as caching or shadowing. If you need to use safe mode to remove or disable componets, restart your computer, press f8 to select advanced start up options, and then select safe mode.

Technical information:

*** STOP: 0x0000007E (0xc0000005, 0xf894a29c, 0xf8954500,0xf8954200)

*** pfc.sys - address f894a29c base at f8949000, date stamp 3987f8fc
