Do you get BSOD? If the computer was moved and accidently dropped, you may have a damaged hard drive. If you have another hard drive, I would jumper the old HD as a slave, reinstall windows on the new drive and salvage your data that way. Otherwise, if you do not need the data currently on the drive I would do a fresh install of XP. Additionally, check the IDE or SATA cable connectin on that drive and make sure it is secure. Can you Enter Safe Mode? Hit F8 at post and select Safe Mode with networking. If you can enter Safe Mode, do a system restore for a date prior to when the puter was moved. Tell your parents, "Leave my &%^# alone!!!"
