Question startup issues in win xp/ibm 600e

I am having issues w/ my laptop. It is a IBM 600e w/ windows xp. At power up, it continually starts up the ibm welcome screen then it shuts down, ongoing until I decide to cut the power to it. I found some help on the issue at microsoft showing my "kernel32.dll files were damaged. That issue i think is okay for now but i have this new issue that popped up right after with my hard drive not being on or recognized. I still cant logon to windows xp to fix this problem through the web or restore or whatever else. The error code my thinkpad gives when signing on is " I9990305 " . Any help would be appreciated!!

With all due respect John, I am the head of IT and I have it on good authority. If you type "Google" into Google, you can break the Internet. So please, no one try it, even for a joke.........It's not a laughing matter. You can break the Internet.

format the hard drive and re-install windows, or get a new hard drive
