Click start then run, type sfc /scannow then press enter to replace the system files, you need the XP CD and get a blue progress bar, reboot when the bar goes

This will take an hour, it will appear to load normally then either the monitor will show progress or the screen will go blank, do not disturb this.
When it gets to the desktop, hard drive will be as it should

but that sounds like a hardware issue to me. defect memory module could cause the read/write errors.
You can reset your memory modules, see if that helps.

You can get to the event logs by going to Control Panel > Administratrive Tools > Event Viewer.
Check the Application and System logs for a bunch of disk warnings or errors.
I was able to fix it by running chkdsk like a previous poster said, but I would be wary, your hdd could be on the verge of crashing.

So far, after the chkdsk thing, I haven't gotten the error yet. But, the internet did the weird thing it was doing with the errors, where it wouldn't open, so I had to restart. Ummm... how do I do that memory thing in the previous post?

It will boot from this and check the memory, let it run a few complete passes
