Check the ones you have not tried here if you want to, however, a clean install is better than any form of repair
Click start then run, type chkdsk /f /r then press enter, type Y to confirm for next boot, press enter then reboot.
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.
Click start then run, type sfc /scannow then press enter, you need the XP CD and get an onscreen blue progress bar, when the bar goes, reboot.
Click start, all programmes, accessories, system tools to run disc clean up, click more options then clean up restore points, click confirm, click OK. Then from system tools, run disc defragmenter.
Click start then run, type prefetch then press enter, click edit then select all, right click any file then click delete, confirm delete, then reboot
When it gets to the desktop, the system files and the hard drive will be as they should
Download and install Tune Up 2006 Trial
Run disc clean up then registry clean up then click optimize to run reg defrag, which needs a reboot
After the reboot, click optimize then system optimizer to optimize the computer, select computer with an internet connection from the drop down menu, this also requires a reboot
After the reboot, click optimize then system optimizer to accelerate downloads, select the speed just above your actual connection speed, this requires a reboot
After the reboot, click optimize then system optimizer to run system advisor
If no change, the next thing to do would be a repair install, this will leave data and settings intact
If you are unable to run XP Repair
Alternate XP Repair
Use the last one, Windows Installation CD to repair the current installation, which uses a slightly different method
After running the repair it will be necessary to install all Windows Updates
Beyond this, it could be a hardware fault

Check you burned the file as an ISO image file with writing software and not just saved the file to a CDRW disc
