My windows XP wont boot up.

Everything boots O.K. but after the OS select screen (theres only one option, Windows XP pro) it just goes blank. I tried in safe mode and it freezes right after it loads the GDI32.dll. It just, kinda, stops. All the fans and water pump is still going, even the graphic card fan. The HDD is spinning. If i just leave it with hopes to unfreeze, it doesn't. It's just always stuck. Help, Please.

Last time I saw this

Last time I saw this, it required a reinstall of the OS. It's also possible you have a failing hard drive. Start with the format and reinstall, if that fails, get a new hard drive.

When I see water pump

I can't help but think overclocked. Is it? If so, can you try setting to proper clock speed?

Well...

It was overclocked from 2.6 to 3.0 with an AMD Athlon 64 x2.the water cooler failed and burnt out my CPU. I got a new water cooling system by thermaltake and swiftech. I replaced the MOBO and the Processor just in case. The new MOBO was a POS, so i put the old one back with the new AMD Athlon 64 x2 3.2ghz. It was working OK and then one day, it just wouldn't start. I reset my Bios to factory settings and cleared my CMOS. Nothing. I hope my HDD isn't burnt out because, well, that would suck.
