Why can't my Windows XP machine boot up?

Episode 1156 (2:28:12)

Louis from Palos Verdes, CA
HP Stream

Louis downloaded something and now he can't do anything when he boots up. Leo believes that the computer's hard drive is failing and that's what is causing the computer to stall on boot up. Especially considering it's an old XP machine. Given the issues Louis is having, it's unlikely from something that Louis installed. Leo says it's not really worth fixing. He advises going to Walmart and buying an HP Stream for $250 and move on.
