I would first off like to apologize to anyone who reads this because I am computer illiterate and have little idea what im talking about. As the title suggests I turned on my computer and I was prompted that windows needed to be repaired, so I put in the windows cd and goto the repair screen. Soon after I am completely lost and I give up for the evening. The next day with the windows cd still in the drive I boot up my computer and it starts so I get excited but I notice it takes an extremely long time to boot up and once I actually got on numerous "bad image" errors came up they seem to differ each time I start it up. My computer now runs extremely slow, freezes constantly and within 5-10 minutes of being on I will get a blue screen of death.

As far as the computer goes some of my friends helped my put it together a little over 2 years ago however I moved so I can't get them to help.
I am running windows XP Pro
AMD Athlon 64 3400+ Processor Socket 754
eVGA (256-A8-N349-AX) GeForce 6800 GT AGP 8X 256MB DDR Video Card
Seagate Barracuda 7200.10 ST3160215A 160GB 7200 RPM IDE Ultra ATA100 Hard Drive
MB ASUS K8N4-E DELUXE NF4

Not sure if that helps at all but if you need any additional info I would be happy to post it.

Try to run system file checker:

Put your XP CD in the drive, Click Start > Run and type:
sfc /scannow

Windows checks to see if any critical files are damaged. If so, SFC will attempt to replace them.
