Problems with Windows XP PC

I am looking at a friend's PC which is constantly freezing. I have managed to clear down quite a bit and now looking at running Chkdsk /r to clear any problems with the HHD. However, when the PC reboots, the system only starts the first check and stops at 2%. I have also tried running the defrag program to analyse the disk, but this just freezes the PC. Any thoughts before I go the whole hog a run a reinstall over the top?
The PC is running XP Pro SP2.

Start Windows in "Safe mode with Command Prompt" (F8 on startup) At the command prompt, enter chkdsk.exe^/f press Enter If Chkdsk wants to schedule a check at the next boot, say Yes enter shutdown^-r^-t^01 then press enter to restart Windows Chkdsk should run on restart
If still freezes at 2% the get a new drive :0(
