Click start then run, type chkdsk /f /r then press enter, type Y to confirm for next boot, press enter then reboot.
This will take an hour, it will appear to load normally then either the monitor will show progress or the screen will go blank, do not disturb this.
Click start then run, type sfc /scannow then press enter, you need the XP CD and get an onscreen blue progress bar, when the bar goes, reboot.
Click start, all programmes, accessories, system tools to run disc clean up, click more options then clean up restore points, click confirm, click OK. Then from system tools, run disc defragmenter.
Click start then run, type prefetch then press enter, click edit then select all, right click any file then click delete, confirm delete, then reboot
When it gets to the desktop, the system files and the hard drive will be as they should
Download and install Tune Up 2006 Trial
Run disc clean up then registry clean up then click optimize to run reg defrag, which needs a reboot
After the reboot, click optimize then system optimizer to optimize the computer, select computer with an internet connection from the drop down menu, this also requires a reboot
After the reboot, click optimize then system optimizer to accelerate downloads, select the speed just above your actual connection speed, this requires a reboot
After the reboot, click optimize then system optimizer to run system advisor
If no change, the next thing to do would be a repair install, this will leave data and settings intact
If you are unable to run XP Repair
Alternate XP Repair
Use the last one, Windows Installation CD to repair the current installation, which uses a slightly different method
After running the repair it will be necessary to install all Windows Updates
Beyond this, it could be a hardware fault

You need to use your product key if it asks
If these do not run and it goes to recovering the registry you will need an XP CD
chkdsk /f /r should run without the CD

in the black box, type
chkdsk /f /r
When it asks to fix on reboot, say yes, and reboot. Do not interrupt the repair, it will run and then reboot back into windows
BAck up anything critical then do it now, while your OS is still working--

Do you have an ati video card? If so, update your video drivers to the most recent catalyst drivers.

If it blue screens again soon after then look at wiping the drive with the hard drive manufacturer's set up utility, which needs to have a write zeros to drive option
Back up whatever data you need asap

1] Boot computer with the Windows XP CD-ROM in the CD-ROM drive.
2] To repair a Windows XP installation using Recovery Console, press R.
3] At the command prompt, type the following commands:-
cd \windows\system32\drivers [Press the ENTER Key]
ren ntfs.sys ntfs.old [Press the ENTER Key]
If the ntfs.sys file is there and corrupt it will rename it. If it is not there then it was missing.
4]At the command prompt, type the following command, and then press ENTER:
copy X:\i386\ntfs.sys drive:\windows\system32\drivers [Where X=CD-ROM Drive]
5]Remove the Windows XP CD from CD-ROM drive, type quit, and then
press ENTER to quit the Recovery Console.
6. Restart the system.
See if it starts properly
