This could be a problem with a failed hard drive. I suggest you take it to a repair shop for diagnoses.

Good Luck
Thank-you for your suggestion, I was hoping that there was something that I could try to do. I have the original cd disc for rebooting windows xp and a external cd drive, but I could not figure out how to make it work. Thank-you again for you time
