Is there any other information in the error window? Is this XP? Have you added any new hardware or drivers before this occurred? Any new updates?

Access your Bios settings and change the boot order so your optical drive is first. Insert the XP CD and access the Recovery Console. Type chkdsk /r at the prompt and press the <Enter> key.

How to install and use the Recovery Console in Windows XP

I would also download and use the utilities from your hard drive manufacturer and test the drive.

Hard Drive Diagnostics Tools and Utilities

If you can get your hands on a Norton, McAfee or other anti-virus program that allows scanning from the CD, check for viruses.

If all that fails you may have a bad IDE/SATA cable or the hard drive controller is shot on the motherboard.
