Boot Failure: System Halted

  1. Here's what it is. I boot the computer - and this is on the black screen.

    Its a gateway, I run windows xp home edition, any other information is unknown until I find that god forsakened box.
    I know the HD is in there, I was able to repartition it and reload Windows XP, and I was up to the prompt to add in my name and organization/bussiness, and restarted it. It returned with this same information. Frankly, I do not want to go messing around in my computers insides unless its verifiable that it will work, OR, I can find someone else to do it for me.
