My ASUS notebook which I bought last year is unable to boot. Before booting it gives me 4 options
1)safe mode
2)safe mode with networking
3)safe mode with command prompt
4)Last known good configuration
5)start windows normally.
I have used all the options but it does not seem to boot. It goes to a blue screen where something is written which I am unable to read because it disappears instantaneously and then the notebook starts to restart again.I cant even get into BIOS setup.

Insert your OS (XP) Cd or Recovery CD in your CD/dvd drive, and set the bios to boot from CD rom.
Try booting from a XP disc and select R for recovery.
Then try to do a chkdsk /r to repair.
If that doesn't work, go back in and try fixmbr to fix the master boot record, and the fixboot which writes a new partition boot sector.
