Try booting into safe mode. Do you have your XP install disc? Also first try to boot with Last Known Good Configuration.
Tell me what that bunch of writing exactly is.

If the system just returns to the startup option screen, you may have a hard drive error. You will need to boot from your XP cd, Press "R" to repair at the 1st screen that comes up and run CHKDSK /r, once you get to the DOS prompt. Hopefully, that will repair the error...(sometimes I've had the routine return with the message that says, "This volume contains unrepairable errors" ) But even if that happens, the fact that it is trying to start means that your data can probably be retrieved. If you need more help, just ask..
Hope this helps...
