my friend broght me his pc to be checked. the initial problem was that there was no display. i powered it up and it the display came on. i did a few checks, reinstalled office2003, left it running for a couple of hrs, then shut it down. yesterday morning when i switchd it on there was no display. i installed a video card and it worked. apparently there was problem with the onboard video controller. today i workde all day on the pc. it has a network card which i thought could be conflicting with the video controller. i removed it, switched the 2 installed ram sticks in the slots, removed the video card, and connected the video cable to the onboard vga port. now it works fine.
now i have another problem -- the bios boots fine but the os doesnt. it says some dlls which are required are missing(something like that)on a blue screen. i reboot and when it cant boot from hard disk it says a certain system file is corrupted or missing(it changes everytime;not the same file). when i boot from xp cd to repair, it freezes at 'kernel debugger dlls' and then displays setupddr(something like that)is cannot be copied... error code 4 or 7. when i boot from hiren's boot cd -- it displays 'decompression failed'. same goes for kaspersky rescue cd. the hard disk wrks fine in my pc. xp loads fine.

computer specs: windows xp sp2 / asus p4s800-mx lga775 / 512mb ddr400 / 1x dvd-rom / 1x cd-rw / seagate barracuda 7200.7 40gb
if ive posted in the wrong place please let me know please.
im thinking maybe the fsb's are damaged. any help will be greatly apreciated.
