CHECKLIST How to troubleshoot Windows XP startup problems
One of the most common troubleshooting issues in Windows XP is the failure of a system to start up properly. These failures can be caused by a number of issues, including poorly written or malicious software, faulty device drivers, hardware incompatibilities, corrupt or missing system files and incorrect system configurations. Determining the source of the startup problem, and fixing it, is easier if you use a methodical, step-by-step approach.
If the system will not start in Normal Mode or Safe Mode
A Windows XP system that will not start in Normal or Safe Mode is not a good sign and may be the result of corrupt or missing system files, a corrupt registry, hardware drivers or failed services. Your first step is to press F8 during Startup and select the Last Known Good Configuration option from the Windows Advanced Options Menu. If Windows boots normally, check the event logs and hardware manager for clues as to what may have caused the failure. You may also want to check the Add/Remove Programs menu for any new applications that may have contributed to the failure.
If the Last Known Good Configuration fails, the next step is to start the Recovery Console by booting from the Windows XP Startup CD and pressing "R" to repair when the "Welcome to System Setup" screen appears, then press "C" to start the Recovery Console. The Recovery Console is a command line utility that can be used to identify and solve a number of issues in the event that Windows cannot start, including starting and stopping services and drivers. If you receive an error on startup stating that a system file is missing or corrupt, Recovery Console can be used to replace those files as well. For a list of available commands, simply type HELP at the command prompt. For more detailed information about the Recovery Console, check out Microsoft Knowledge Base article 307654.
If you are unable to determine if a driver or service is responsible for the startup failure, you should run the Checkdisk utility from the Recovery Console by typing CHKDSK at the command prompt. This utility scans your hard drive and checks for problems with the disk or file system, which may result in corrupt or missing system files. You should also check the system CMOS and BIOS settings for configuration errors or corrupt data. Note: CMOS and BIOS data corruption can occur as a result of a dead or weak internal battery. Check your motherboard documentation for details.
If you are still unable to determine the cause of startup failure at this point, you have the following options:

Those files under the System32\Drivers folder are essential for the OS to work properly such as starting-up.
Try using the System/Repair Disk that came with your computer. Perform a "Repair" when asked. Worst, you may need to re-install the OS.

Tips for a great answer:
Yes, all hardware devices need 64-bit drivers to work on a 64-bit version of Windows. Drivers designed for 32-bit versions of Windows won't work on computers running 64-bit versions of Windows.
