    Are you given any error messages? If so, what are they exactly? Can you boot into Safe Mode without any issues?

    no error messages it just automatically goes to the screen where it gives you teh optioins for safe mode etc and no i can't even go into safe mode it wont even go to the windows logo anymore and after a while it randomly shuts itself off

    You can't borrow one from a friend or family member? Everyone and their grandmother (literally, grandma too) has Windows XP.

    The only other thing that I can think of to suggest is a repair installation of Windows and that too requires the XP CD. Get your hands on a copy...
