I have a problem!

My computer model is Advent T9317- my OS is windows XP media centre. When I turn my computer on, it loads up and then starts to ask me what configuration I want: 'safe mode', 'last known configuration' and so on. When I choose any of them, the screen goes black, then loads up the BIOS again and start to ask me again (safe mode blablabla) - on the top of the screen it says 'sorry for the inconvenience the hard drive might be corrupt'. I tried recovering the system because my computer has built in recovery thingie madgig when I first got it and I used it to fix my computer the first time I got it but don't have the recovery disc when I first got it. And because I have the recovery system inside my hard drive, I can't go to it too because the second time I broke the pc, I sent it to a local IT people and they fixed it by partitioning the hard drive again so im guessing that they deleted the files that will help recover my system and I think now the recovery disc that I can buy from the advent company wont work as well because the IT people partitioned my hard drive. I tried a windows xp media centre disc from a friend - inserted it, but still wont work on my pc, my pc cant read the disc, I went to the bios and change the hard drive boot up and placed cd rom before the hard drive but still wont read the windows xp media centre disc, I don't know how to fix my pc. What if I just install new OS to it, will that work?!

I Had That Startup Loop About An Hour Ago So I Used System Recovery And Now It Resets Itself Constantly!!!
