Question about PC Desktops
At a minimum, you have a Windows system file error, but very possibly you may be having a hard drive problem. If you have them available, run diagnostics on the hard drive (Many systems have a link on the F12 or F8 menus, some in the BIOS, and some on resource or support CDs that come with the system.
Assuming the drive passes diagnostics and you have you XP CD handy, boot to the CD, select R to enter Recovery Console. From there, RUN: CHKDSK /P and see if you can repair the file system and make the system boot again. If that fails, boot to the Recovery Console again, run FIXBOOT If that fails, boot to the Recovery Console again, run FIXMBR
If all those attempts fail, then you can attempt a repair install of XP
