I was trying to fix a computer for somebody and he said his hard drive was corrupt, which may be the case, but I'm not sure if I have to reinstall windows. The error message I get when windows is about to start is "Unmountable boot device" and I get a blue screen. So I put the hard drive in my computer and setup checked the drive and fixed some things and then I was able to to view data on it, so the drive appears to be working, but it won't boot for some reason. Does that mean I have to reinstall XP?

What data is on the BSOD? This can determine the actual cause of the boot problem. The code that is required is this part: 0x000.....
This line of code is the most important to diagnosing the problem with the computer.

I use cable internet though and I thought windows XP loaded drivers for the NIC card. So it should be able to connect?

check your device manager, right click my computer -> click properties -> click hardware -> click Device Manager, check if all drivers are loaded properly.. or try going to command line then type this command ping 127.0.0.1 check if you will got a reply blah blah blah.. if the reply is request timed out then replace NIC...
