And what happens after the video format message? Does the computer boot? Does Windows XP run OK?
If so, look at your Startup folder to see if a link to a video file is there (and starting up automatically).
Once you find it, move that like to your desktop and / or delete it from the Startup folder.
If video is starting by an entry in the registry (in the Run section), then it's another story, and I wouldn't recommend that you touch or edit the registry if you don't have the experience.
Microsoft stopped supporting Windows XP back in April, no security updates, so you are at risk in terms of security. Consider upgrading to Windows 7, or buying a machine from a source other than a garage sale. Just suggesting.
It is most likely dead! Sorry but that is what it sound like. One can buy a PC cheaper than having an older model repaired. Plus as of April 04, 2014 Windows XP will no longer be supported by Microsoft. Get Windows 7 PC!!!

Startup Repair is a Windows recovery tool
that can fix certain problems, such as missing or damaged system files, that
might prevent Windows from starting. Startup
Repair is located on the System Recovery Options menu, which is on the Windows Vista installation disc. If your computer
has preinstalled recovery options, it might also be stored on your computer's hard
disk. For more information, see Startup Repair:
frequently asked questions and What are the
system recovery options in Windows Vista?
If your computer does not include Startup Repair, your computer manufacturer
might have customized or replaced the tool. Check the information that came with
your computer or go to the manufacturer's website.
Change restart settings in safe
mode. If your computer is stuck in a loop where Windows fails, attempts to restart, and then fails
again repeatedly, restart your computer in safe mode and select the Disable automatic restart on system failure checkbox. For more
information, see Advanced
startup options (including safe mode).
Reinstall. If no other
options have solved the problem, and you are sure that your computer's hardware
is functioning normally, you might need to reinstall Windows. A custom (clean)
installation of Windows will permanently
delete all of the files on your computer and reinstall Windows, so only use this option if all other
recovery options have been unsuccessful. After the installation, you will need
to reinstall your programs and restore your files from backup copies. For more
information, see Installing and
