34 minute repair install hang on winxp

I have this on a computer i am fixing for someone. It had been behaving badly, hanging and not shutting down correctly and i began a repair install and it hangs both with XPsp1 and XPsp2 cd's. Have disconnected everything but the necessary and it still hangs. Trying to avoid a reformat of C:\ if at all possible. Anyone have experience with this? I have already visited the microsoft webpage which offers a "solution" to this problem. Anyone ever successfully get past this one?

The "hang" consists of the screen going dark, green Monitor LED turns to yellow forever and no further install progress. rebooting gets one eventually to the same screen and result. thx.

I have had a thirty - something minute hang up with ME.

Under XP - 13 minutes from finish:
see:Help: Win XP install stops - 13 Minutes remaining
I got lucky - I used 1 disk to start the install and finished with another.



EDIT: sorry just seen your arent actually installing.
