XP Rig no longer booting

My main PC appears to be having uses booting up. The BIOS loads as usual, then it goes on the XP wait screen, which runs for a long time, then it either goes over to a blank screen or at least once as spontanously restarted. Boot "last known good configuration" doesn't seem to help, is it worth trying "Safe Mode"? I have the full XP disk that it came with (it was an custom build) is it worth trying to run a repair installation? After several attempts it appears that the issue is the System32/config file or something like that.

thanks,

Sham
