Most likely when you dropped power on the computer you corrupted the file system.
You need to boot your XP CD and enter R the first time you are allowed to do so. Select your XP partition, login as Administrator (no password required).
At the command prompt, enter chkdsk /r and press Enter.
Allow chkdsk to complete undisturbed. That should resolve the problem.
Also, if you have SP2 installed, you should see an option to Turn off automatic restart when you use F8 to get to Safe Mode. Select it, then when you boot, if there is a blue screen (BSOD) error occurring, it will show you the information.
Hopefully chkdsk will fix it.
