System failure help!

Alright something is really wrong :cry: I just recently switched my CPU from a Q6600 to a E8400. It worked fine for a day, but then the computer crashed. When I tried to start it up and go into Windows, it would give me an error message like "Windows XP could not start because the following file is missing or corrupt : \WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\CONFIG\SYSTEM". I then tried to use my Windows XP setup disk to do reformat or anything but then it would't load up, instead giving me the BSOD with: Bad_Pool_Caller
Technical information:
*** STOP: 0x000000C2 (0x00000043, 0xC2CA4000, 0X00000000, 0X00000000)

The CD itself is
good because I popped it in to another computer and it worked. I tried switching back to my old Q6600 and nothing changed. What can I do?
