I have a hard drive that when I turn on computer the windows xp window comes up and stays on for a long time then the system boots up by itself again and goes thru scan disk and the same window comes up but it never reaches my desktop. I manually shut off computer then on again but I never reach my desk top or computer sign in.

If you hit the ESC key when that splash screen comes up, you should be able to see the rest of the boot process. That may help you detemine where it's getting hung up.

I am not sure this is the problem,but you may have a virus on the system use anti-virus to scan computer,then use scan disk to check drive for ant errors
Now,see if you can restore the drive back to date wen it was working properly,using the system restore.
