Testimonial: "Helpful advice, quite thorough but not sufficient as the problem is not yet resolved. Perhaps I need to better explain to the Guru and will do that."
You have no choice either you should reinstall your system, you should provide windows CD/DVD installation and boot your system using this disk.
However; you should backup your important files be cause most likely the all files will be removed during the installation process.

SOURCE: not starting up
use the recovery CD to start, maybe it can fix the issue as well.
WARNING: Do NOT allow it to replace the information without backing up, it could set it to factory 'zero'

Well this means one of important files needed to start Windows is corrupted (it's a registry file).
I'd recommend repairing Windows installation. If you have Windows XP and also the Original Windows CD follow: this guide.
