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

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.
