Can you reload last known good configuration? Tap F8 as the computer boots up to pull up safe mode, etc options. If that doesn't work, you're SOL. The fact you cannot even boot up safe mode pretty much means you're hosed. If you have files on that hard drive, I would recommend pulling the hard drive out and getting the data off w/ a hard drive adapter. Once all files saved, I would wipe the drive and reinstall the operating system. Sorry. Situations like that ****.
Hi, you will need to reformat your hard drive before installing XP, First boot into BIOS by pressing the F1 key during bootup, change the primary boot drvice to CD rom, save changes. Insert XP cd into drive and reboot PC; select boot from CD when this appears during the initial boot fase. Allow files to be installed. When this finishes, delete partion and then repartion hard drive. Select format hard drive, when this completes your PC will reboot, do not select boot from CD and XP will start to install normally. Hope this helps, if not come back to me.
Log in using SAFE MODE. While laptop boots, press F8 and it will prompt for which mode to login. Select 'SAFE MODE'. Once logged in try to restore the OS to a previous good restore point.
If you've a backup of the registry key, it will help better. Just restore the registry from the backup instead of going for an old restore point.
Please come back and rate my solution if this turns to be helpful for you or also if you need more clarification.

It looks like you installed the wrong drivers for your motherboard. It can cause a Blue Screen Of Death. Also how many hard-drives do you have in that computer? IDE? Are the jumpers set to CS? I find that CS causes problems. If you have 2 devices on a ribbon cable make one master w non ATA and the second device as slave. Also the boot.ini could be confused. Is the boot.ini on the wrong hard-drive Did you accidentally put 2 operating systems on the same computer? lots of things could have caused this.
If you don't see the message on start up "Press any key to boot from cd" Then you need to change the boot order.
Start the PC and hit delete a number of times. This will take you into the bios screen. (Set up screen)
You will have a tab called "Boot Priority" or "Boot order". Make sure that CD/DVD drive has 1st priority. Save & exit & your done. Upon restart if you have a disc in the drive you will get the option to press any key to boot from CD/DVD. By default, most motherboards are set to boot from floppy & then Hard drive so in most cases you will need to enter setup & change the boot order.
