Sounds like your hard drive has crashed. You will need to replace it.
You can try to run the Check Disk Utility to see if it can repair the drive.
To run the check disk utility you will need a repair disc ora operating system disc. Put the disc in the cd drive and boot fromit. You want to get to the Dos Command Prompt (Black screen with whiteletters) and type the following command: chkdsk /r
Check disk will run well over an hour or two and you will notice thepercentages going from high to low, this is normal. Let it run tocompletion. Then reboot machine.
If check disk fails to solve your problem you might have to reinstall windows.Try doing a Repair Install that way you don't loose your data, documents,music, pictures, videos or programs.
In windows xp you get to the dos command prompt by selecting R for repair whenthe options appear.
In Vista and Windows 7 you want to get to the recoveryconsole and look down at the bottom of the window for the Dos Command.

It is predictive failure. Start backing up your files and replace drive. You can also run chkdsk c: /f/r to fix errors on the drive from the command prompt. C being the drive letter or whatever your is.
