Alright, I fixed the fan! Caldezar, I did exactly that and voila...no more error message...but now there's something else wrong.

I go to start up the computer...the HP screen comes up, then a screen that asks me if I want to start windows normally comes up, then it will go to the XP loading screen...but it wont load...very quickly a blue screen comes up and then the process starts all over again.

So yeah...I'm once again lost.

and apparently my BIOS doesn't have a fan options thing.

What OS are you running? You could always run a chkdsk /r in case it's an error with with the HDD. (Which it sounds like) Or a repair reinstall as a last ditch effort.

*EDIT* XP, I see now

Well we were fiddling with the video card, and we put it back in...Now the computer will turn on and off every few seconds.

Oh we got a screw stuck in the PSU, so we had to shake it around to get it out; which we did.

Sounds like you have more than one issue. Might be time to take it to a techy friend, or a shop. Or, if you mention your location, you might find someone on this forum local who does house calls.
