If your Operating System files are corrupt ...

Since it would be next to impossible to find someone on this planet that would be willing to attempt to repair corrupt Operating System files with those same corrupt Operating System files, the only other reasonable choice is to Replace them with known good, uncorrupt files.

Since XP comes on CD, the first step would be to replace (or repair) the broken DVD drive. Then borrow (or buy) an XP CD to replace the corrupt files.

You are going to need a XP cd of the same type that you have installed (XP home, XP pro, XP media)
You are going to also need a working CD/DVD drive.

With out those items there is no way that it can be fixed.

Without knowing whether you are running home, pro, or media center, a google search would be fruitless for us to try.

You need to do a google search.
You can also borrow 1 of the same type.

You haven't told us whether it is a laptop or desktop so doing a search for CD drives is fruitless also.

Also if it is a Dell or HP, the drives might be an issue because a generic might not fit.

EDIT: Anything downloaded from the internet will most likely be pirated software which most likely will not be able to be licensed and could contain virus's and malware.

Good to hear you already have XP Home w/SP3. If that's the same version that's already installed that'll save you $100. :)

The internal model DVD burners I linked to above are for a standard Desktop PC case. (They fit in a standard 5.25" drive bay).
