Windows xp won't boot up after compaq logo?

February 28, 2011 at 19:59:56
Specs: Windows xp
After the logo screen I get a black screen with a ticking line at the top left corner.
I had just installed windows xp on it.
I set the hard drive as first to boot-up.
I press f8 to try safe mode but I dont get the screen to choose that option.
I tried loading up a windows xp disc to diagnose the hd but the disc wont load up. (dont get the option)
btw the reason I reinstalled xp was a configuration error in the windows files keeping it from booting up and demanding a repair.

Any troubleshooting ideas are much appreciated. Just please don't say something like "remove the battery and reset the bios" ,, I want to try out the simpler options first makes one beep starting up
