    Sorry to say, sounds like your PC died.

    That's what, "got worse to the point i can't turn it on now" indicates.

    When you push the power button, do you get any beeps?

    IF you do get beeps, they may be a code, like beep, beep ...pause... beep, beep, beep These are beep-error codes from your motherboard indicating major hardware failures, memory, motherboard itself, etc.

    No POST beeping or any other indication. Just monitor goes off when it get to laoding Windows. This help further?
    How did it progressivly get worse. I used to keep rebooting and trying again and it eventually worked. Any idea which part has gone in the computer??

    Ah! So POST does display. That's good to know. (POST = Power-On System-Test)

    So it is a Windows problem or a hard drive problem.

    You may have a problem with NTFS, like the MBR (Main Boot Record) being corrupted.

    If you have your original WinXP Install CD, boot to the CD.

    When you finally get to the install Windows screen, at the bottom, there should be a [R]epair option, use it.

    When you get to the Repair Console, enter CHKDSK /R and hopefully this will correct any NTFS problems.

    Just in case, the /R is what you use from the Repair Console, not /F.
