My computer seems dead but fixable and im looking here for answers on what i should do

First off i turn on my computer and right when Windows XP boot screen appears a BSOD flashes and it flashes way too quick too see then the computer crashes then restarts.

Heres what ive already done:
1) Went to Safe mode but when loading the drivers the computer restarts
2) Reformatted my hard drive and reinstalled windows xp, which ends up having the same problem
3) tried to install linux but doesnt work
4) cry and hope it works when i turn it on the next day

I have another hard drive and before opening my computer up and installing it i'm wondering if it would solve anything if i were to do it.
also another quick note is that when i turn on the alarm/buzzer thing for when my fans dont work, they go off, which maybe means my system fan isnt running

please if you have any insight on what would be my next step or any tips please help me out

What's the make and model number of your computer?
The power of accurate observation is commonly called cynicism by those who haven't got it.

It sounded like a hardware issue. Glad you got it fixed.
