  1. it looks like either your harddrive failed or has been corrupted . if you have the install disc try this
    Boot from OS(win XP) cd.. it will come to setup window, press 'R', it'll take u to the recovery console window...at the C:>prompt, type "chkdsk /p" (without inverted commas)/ u may get a message: found one or more errors in d volume after it's done...type: chkdsk /p again and press enter..continue doing it till the message: found one or more errors does not appear...then type: fixboot and press enter...type "y" and enter to confirm...u should be all set...
