Well i restart and try to boot into safe mode. I can't It goes to windows recovery screen but when i press up or down the highlight doesn't move and stays on boot windows normally. so it trys to boot normally and goes back to the blue screen again.

Sis GRV relates to what is known as a Compatible Super VGA Display Driver for Windows XP program

Your stop error 0x000000ea is a video device error.

My guesstimation is that you have a corrupt video driver. I would start in safe mode and uninstall and then reinstall your video drivers.

If you are using a USB keyboard, that could be the reason.
Do either of the following ...
1. Use a PS2 keyboard or adapter USB > PS2
2. In the BIOS Setup Menu, enable "USB Legacy support" or "USB Keyboard support" of some similarly worded option. Save and exit.
