I would suggest you try a clean install of xp. Format the drive and start over.

Yes, Do try to re-install Windows XP. Can you boot Windows Xp's Install CD? If not, I would suggest a bit crazy solution: Go to your (Best!) friend, ask him to put your hard-disc in his computer and see what's happening. You may also want to go to a computer laboratry. Without seeing the problem- I can't tell!
