Do you get a box saying the drive is locked, type Y (and press enter) to run at next boot?

Click Start, then Run, type cmd in the Open box and click "Ok". At the prompt in the Command window, type fsutil dirty query c: (This queries the drive and will tell you if it is dirty or clean)
Let me know what it reports.

This looks like possible file system corruption. Unfortunately I'm only vaguely aware of repairing such issues, and due to the risks involved, I don't feel comfortable trying to explain how to repair it...
However, we can try one more thing...
Put your XP CD into your CD drive and boot from it. When you are given the option, start the Recovery Console (by pressing R).
When you get to the command prompt, type chkdsk /r and press "Enter". Let me know if it works there.
