Sounds like your hard drive may be dieing. Do you have a Windows CD? If you don't have one download either of these and create a bootable CD from the .iso file

XP Recovery Console
Another XP Recovery Console

You don't burn the iso file itself to CD., you create a CD from the iso file using your CD burning software. There is a good freeware burner called DeepBurner which will do this. Another called ISO Recorder is also very easy to use.

Boot the CD and at the first opportunity, enter R to start the Recovery Console.
Next, choose which XP installation you want to login to. Normally this will be 1.
Lastly you will be asked for the Administrator password. Just press the Enter key as the Administrator does not have a password (unless you gave it one, then you would enter it).

From the command prompt, enter: chkdsk c: /r

Allow it to complete undisturbed.

If it reports unrecoverable errors, you are most likely going to need a new hard drive, but first, you need to open the computer case and remove the hard drive (with power off) so you can see the manufacturer. Then go to the manufacturers web site and download their diagnostic utility. It will be available as a diskette or CD (iso) image. Create the diskette or CD (follow directions above) then boot the diskette or CD and run the drive diagnostic, see what it reports.

How are you posting here then? If you can't do this, have a friend do it for you and create the diskette or bootable CD.

This is where you need to start.
