I am attempting to fix my friends computer which has windows XP installed on it. When it boots up it goes to the windows xp loading screen and just when you think windows is going to load you get a blue screen with some text and it re-starts. This is a constant loop and the same thing happens in all of the safe mode options. I cannot identify any of the text on the blue screen as it flashes up so quickly.
I tested the graphics card, memory, cd-rom, sound card and it is none of those so I am wondering if it is the hard drive? Any advice ... I'm guessing I should just try and re-install windows?
