boot into the bios or if bios support diagnostics boot into that (typically F1 of F10 on power up) If that is not an option boot off the CD recovery disk and run diagnostics on the HD. Let me know we can take it from there.
You could have a Boot Sector Virus. you would need to run anti-virus software to try and remove this issue. I would recommend Avast or AVG. I have attached a link of website that microsoft recommends. http://support.microsoft.com/kb/49500/EN-US/
Do you have a windows XP cd?
If so you can try booting from the cd and running recovery console.
from recovery console type chkdsk -r
This should repair any bad sectors on your drive, allowing the drive to boot
(this scan may take some time)
installing windows 95 on your pc would require you to have a bootable disk (either a floppy or cd) insert your bootable disk and go to bios settings --> once you start your desktop pc, press Del key then go to Boot menu and select your frist boot to floppy or cd (wherever your bootable disk is) then exit and save changes. once your pc boots from the bootable disk goto C: then make a directory (let's say Win95) --> C:\md win95 then press enter then goto that directory which you've just created ---> C;\cd win95 then press enter then copy your windows 95 disk on this directory once you finished copy, run setup be sure to remove your bootable disk the next time your pc restarts or change the boot sequence (again in Bios settings) to your harddrive as first boot hope this helps
