Can you give us the exact error code you see on the blue screen?

Can you boot into the Recovery Console?

Do you have the Recovery console installed?

Insert the Windows XP CD into the CD drive, and then restart the computer. Click to select any options that are required to start the computer from the CD drive if you are prompted. When the "Welcome to Setup" screen appears, press R to start the Recovery Console. If you have a dual-boot or multiple-boot computer, select the installation that you must access from the Recovery Console. When you are prompted, type the Administrator password. If the administrator password is blank, just press ENTER.

Type: chkdsk /r

It's important to have a space before the "/".

To exit the Recovery Console and restart the computer, type exit at the command prompt, and then press ENTER.



This type of problem can be caused by defective RAM. So you could also try testing your RAM with this: http://www.memtest.org/
