The following parameters appear on the blue screen.
1 The NT status code that caused the failure
Any part of the disk subsystem can cause the PROCESS1_INITIALIZATION_FAILED bug check, including bad disks, bad or incorrect cables, mixing different ATA-type devices on the same chain, or drives that are not available becuase of hardware regeneration.
This bug check can also be caused by a missing file from the boot partition or by a driver file that a user accidentally disabled in the Drivers tab.
By your description that nothing has been changed it sound like your hard drive is developing bad sectors. You can replace the hard drive in the computer with a new one then reinstall XP back to the new HD and register it. After doing so, you can hook up your old hard drive into the computer and go find the files you would like to transfer over to your new hard drive. You may have to do a "ownership"
on the files and folders you need to copy. The old operating system should not start up, so you can treat the driver like a data drive( only holds data you have put there). You may need to make sure the drive is in select mode and on the center connector on the IDE data cable. If you are using SATA just plug it in. If it asks you if you want to include the system as bootable, just say NO.http://support.microsoft.com/kb/308421
