Note: Memtest goes through several stages and it is wise to keep it running for an hour or two to make sure it has tested it all.
Note: Mabye your XP disc is screwed.
I left the memtest on for 3 hours and there were no errors reported.
I am now going to go about looking for a new hard drive.
I will post the outcome of the result when I get a new drive.
Thanks for all the help guys.
My xp disc is fine,it has been tried out on another pc.
