Windows 7: Major computer issue... I really need help with this!

Make sure all the connections are in there solid.
Take the case off, ground yourself and clean inside, fans included and make sure all boards are seated properly.
Then reboot again.

So if you change the boot order so that your CD/DVD is set to boot first, and a Windows XP disc in the drive, you are not able to boot into your XP disc?

This is correct. It still just pops up with the same routine as I mentioned before.

Here's a guide for you to try next
Disk - Clean and Clean All with Diskpart Command

I don't know if there is corrupt install of 7 stopping you from booting into your XP disc. But I really don't see why.

If I were you, in the guide I would skip step 6 and just do step 7. This will clean your HDD, but it will take over an hour to complete.

When you are finished with the guide, try going into F12 again and setting your DVD drive to boot first, with your XP disc in.
