XP pro will not boot normally. Extremely slow and while it is coming up all kinds of weird noises and flashes occur. Tried to start in Safe Mode, but was ignored and just started to normal desktop.

Ran chdsk but the summary screen closed so fast I couldn't read it.

The best I can do is remove the hard drive and slave it to another desktop. If there is a program that can be copied to a floppy, then I might be able to boot using it.

This happened a week or so ago and when I tried to run chkdsk I wasn't allowed. Something was running. I found DBJ.exe a dos exe in the root directory. When I googled it I read that it was sometype of a downloader so I deleted it and presto evrything was back and normal. But now I'm back to square one.
