Windows XP Won't Load

Acer Aspire 5570-4421 notebook
November 26, 2009 at 20:39:24
Specs: Windows Vista
When powering up a screen displays something along the lines of We're sorry for the inconvenience but Windows did not start successfully. A recent hardware or software change may have caused this. It then lists a few options like Start Windows Normally, Start is Safemode etc. You are then not able to actually select ANY of the options it just then attempts to load Windows XP, shows the logo then flashes another error that moves to quickly to read and then shuts down and reboots itself. What could be wrong? Safemode is not an option like I said because it won't allow you in to do that. How can this problem be fixed?

Before it starts to load windows, keep tapping the F8 key.
This should get you into the 'real' safe mode menu. Should be
option to disable restart on failure (if SP2 or later). Select that
- then it should stop on a BSOD, with hopefully some clues
as to the problem. If it won't take any notice of keys you
press, you need to try another keyboard. Most likely problem
is a filestore corruption - possibly causing a corrupt system or
registry file. There are ways of fixing this - but you need to be
reasonably advanced user to attempt. It might be fixable more
simply by booting into recovery console (if you have an XP
install CD) and running chkdsk c: /p, then fixboot. Post back
if you have more info and need more help.
