Windows XP: Error before the loading screen

  Usx9 02:03 21 Sep 2008

I have a serious problem with my computer which is running Windows XP professional. When i go to turn on my PC, everthing works like it should, until windows wants to boot up, the first time this happend, i just ignored it since it had the same error as it did in your Mini-laptops mag, but mine is persistant and keeps coming back at the same point, no matter what option i do, safe mode, last known config or normal boot up. The blue-screen says something along the lines of: "Check to be sure you have adequate disk space. If a driver is identified in the Stop message, disable the driver or check with the manufacturer for driver updates. Try changing video adaptors.

Check with your hardware vendor for any BIOS updates. Disable BIOS memory options such caching or shadowing.

TECHNIAL information:

*** sptd.sys - Address F751C1EC base at F74D9000, Datestamp 477bbd59"
However Safe mode wont work, nor will LNGConfig, as the turn the same error, i have tried taking everything out exept graphics cards, ram cards and taken out cd-rom and floppy drive to no avail. Is this a quick WinXP cd repair, full install or (which i dread) HDD death or error
