Question about Computers & Internet
OK, we have Windows XP and we cannot boot to the Desktop in Normal, Safe or last known good configuration.
You definitely have a windows OS issue, and you may have a hard drive problem.
If you post the Brand and Model of the system, that would help us to be able to give better info on running a diagnostic on the Hard Drive.
Many brands have an option for diagnostics on the F8 or F12 menus. See if you can run a hard drive diagnostic. It the hard drive fails diags, then you'll need to replace the drive. If it passes diagnostics, then try booting to the XP CD, entering recovery console and run CHKDSK /R
