  1. I keep getting a message on my pc, Windows did not start successfully. I've tired safe mode, and all others listed. I've tired F8, control, alt, delete. I've tired the Windows XP Cd, still nothing. I can not get the blue screen to appear, but for a blink of an eye. This keeps looping with the same screen. Never ending process. Could my hard drive be bad or could this be a mother board issue?

    What is this, a laptop or desktop computer? Yes, this could be caused by a failing hard drive
