Desktop Stuck at Windows XP Loading Screen

As the title says, this afternoon my desktop suddenly stopped functioning for the most part, so I restarted my PC. However, after that point, it won't get past the Windows XP loading screen. I've tried using both "Use Last Settings That Worked" and Safe Mode, but so far no go. I'm worried that the boot drive has finally given up the ghost, but I don't want to give up on it yet.

Have you tried creating a partition then installing Windows on it?

You have to do a full format already. Just retrieve your important files using the method and reinstall on a fresh run.

Most of all, you have to be disciplined and you have to save, even if you hate our current financial system. Because if you don't save, then you're guaranteed to end up with nothing.

When I have this situation it's either software or hardware. The hardware part can be the HDD or some other part. I once had a PC with failed network in the MB and that was causing it to stop there. Just take the HDD and link to another PC or use some sort of booter to save what you need to save (assuming the HDD is good) and then do a clean install. If it goes wrong in the install then it's hardware.
