XP restart problem

Running XP. on a regularly used PC.
One day, everything works fine, then the next day, I start it up.When it gets to the first XP screen, the PC restarts itself, and continuously does this.
As there was nothing on the drive that I needed, I decided to format and install . This all goes well, until right near the end of the install, when I get an error 'cannot install run.dll.

Does this sound like a hard-drive problem??
