I had a similar problem once that was RAM related. Try taking out a stick of ram and reseating the other. You might also try to take out your vid card and reseat that to and seeif it works.

haha i had the same problem. bad sectors in the hard disk. solution: delete the windows partition, reinstall windows doing a FULL format (not the quick one). Also when you do start windows, do not enable write caching. (it works for me)

this is probably possible but would a RAM issue be caught during POST?

you may also want to rewrite your MBR

get to the windows xp repair prompt - on the cd thing

type in fixmbr and hit enter

say yes to what ever crap it comes up with, restart your system and try installing xp again.

wait wait wait...you dont need 6 set up disks for windows...alls you need is the installation cd...

1. when you put the XP cd in, press enter to install windows...then when it takes you to the blue screen and shows your drive, press D to delete then press L to confirm the deletion of that partition.

2. format the drive using NTFS NOT the one that says (quick) after it.

3. you should be good to go.
