Xp keeps going in a cycle at start up


My daughter has a compaq notebook mini 700 and currently when you start it up it remains in the start up screen offering 5 options
safe mode
safe mode with networking
safe mode with command prompt
last known good configuration
start windows normally

All of this options result in nothing more than going to the XP microsoft graphics page and then
f9 - change boot device order
f10 - BIOS setup
neither of these work. For a split second there is a blue screen with yellow writing that cannot be read and it then reverts to the original black & white start up page !

Any ideas ??
