0x0000006F: SESSION3_INITIALIZATION_FAILED
(Click to consult the online MSDN article.)
The process creation failure indicated by this error message can only happen during the fairly brief time that the Windows Executive is being initialized, which is during phase 4 of Windows startup. Typically there is a problem with a device driver or with a missing or corrupt system file used during Windows startup.

Sounds like you have some disk corruption or RAM issues.  I would check for disk corruption first.  Try and boot into the XP recovery console (boot from XP CD and choose recovery console).  Once there you can run chkdsk.  Once that's finished see if Windows will boot, if not try safe mode and pay attention to the list of files that scroll across the screen as it's booting.  The last one to show before the computer blue screens is probably the one that is having issues.  You can boot from your XP CD again and copy this file from the CD to the C:\Windows\System32 folder and try and boot again.

When I try to go into a save mode, the file at which the computer crashes is agpcpq.sys. What is this file? What is it for?

This is a AGP filter driver.  I see some solutions out there that say to update the BIOS when failing on this file.

For me, it was a HDD on a Dell Latitude D610 with corrupted sectors.

I booted in the Windows XP recovery mode, and did chkdsk /R
It found bad sectors, but could not repair them all. It was decided to replace the laptop.
