Well then, there's nothing wrong with your system!
Seriously, we've probably eliminated disk problems as source of this issue - so what remains is the 3rd party drivers that load with Windows. You can check these out with the free program Autoruns ( http://www.microsoft.com/technet/sysintern...s/Autoruns.mspx
) Just click on the Drivers tab once the program is open.
You can also use Driver Verifier - but be sure you've got another computer handy as this can prevent your system from booting at all
To use it go to Start...Run...and type "verifier.exe" and press Enter.
In the next window press Next to accept the default of "Create Standard Settings"
In the next window press Next to accept the default of "Automatically Select Unsigned Drivers"
Wait while the system detects the unsigned drivers (at this point Driver Verifier will attempt to connect to the internet)
In the next window press Finish to accept the "List of unsigned drivers chosen to be verified"
Reboot the system attempting to get into Normal Mode.
If we're lucky, the system will crash and a dump file will be generated. Use this link to perform an analysis of the dump file: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/176011/how-to-receive-help-diagnosing-blue-screens-and-windows-crashes/
Once that's done, go back into Driver Verifier and select the "Delete Existing Settings" in the first screen and click your way through the dialog. Since you probably won't be able to do this in Normal Mode, go ahead and do it in Safe Mode with Networking. This will remove the settings and will allow the system to boot without the crash.
If the system doesn't crash immediately, then run it until it does.
If you can't boot back into Safe Mode, then you're going to need your XP installation disk in order to get into the Recovery Console to disable the Driver Verifier from there.
