First try to boot the sytem up in safe mood If that does work boot from the xp cd and go past the recovery console to the install menu Select repair the existing installation You won't lose any data except the xp updates Unless you have a slipstream sp1 cd you will have to d/l sp1 and all subsequent updates You must have at least SP1 installed and the updates for security reasons

After you have recover all the system files Your system should boot up properly If it doesn't then there is a possibilitiy it's a PSU problem
