Please note that I mentioned the XP CD, not a recovery disk, primarily because they usually behave differently during the initial startup. EXACTLY where does it blue screen? Generally, the recovery disk will first give you warnings about all data being erased, and options for the recovery are given initially as well... ., Afterward, it will then format the drive and reinstall the operating system.. After the operating system is installed then all the other software and programs are placed on the hard drive. WHERE do you see the blue screen?
If the hard drive never gets formatted and the operating system doesn't get installed then it may be hard drive that's failed.. Other things could indicate motherboard, etc. Replacing either of those on an old computer is probably wasting good money, but that's up to you.
Hope this helps.
