nope, I cant get into windows period safe mode or regular or whatever. I only see the windows logo and then a brief very brief bsod screen and then it reboots to the bios then windows logo then BSOD (less than a second) then Bios and so on. and once in a blue moon windows actually boots into the explorer and stuff but it crashes in a few minutes. I dont even have enough time to run windows update. Sometimes it boots but with the messed up screen like i said earlier. I was having these problems before and i thought it was an OS problem so I installed a fresh new copy of XP and it worked flawless for a few hours and then it crashed and its been like that ever since.
Sounds like a memory problem or overheating. Check for dust buildup inside the case, then try removing one of the memory sticks and run memtest again. If the test fails again swap the sticks and try again. let us know what happens.
