Restart the computer and keep tapping F2 function key on Dell logo. Under Boot option ensure boot list option set to LEGACY. You can change the boot order and press F10 to save the setting and choose Exit.

Just use recovery console of windows xp bootable media and use the following command.
chkdsk (to check the volume).
It happens due to improper shutdown methods which has caused the system volume to corrupt the MBR.

I can help, Leave everything to me!!!!
Im asuming its doing what is called, " The windows boot loop" or as we call it at work anyways.
Dels are known for this.
let me guess, it starts up normally, gets to the windows startup but asks you to pick between 4 different start up options like safe mode.
Do you have your original CD that came with it, or at least a windows XP CD?
You will need one.
What you do is,
1st: Bot from CD. Start the machine with the Winxp CD in the drive, hit F12 for boot options, or whatever key function it is. Do this as soon as you turn it on,
2: select " Boot from CD" and press any key when it askes if you want to boot from CD.
3: It will load like your doing a fresh install of windows. Thats alright, its normal and no it wont re-install windows at this point.
4: Once it loads, it will have some options. Press " R" for repair.
It will go out and to the command prompt after about 5 seconds.
5: Once at the command prompt, type in exactly ( CHKDSK C: /P ) Dont include the ( ) . Then press "Enter key "
6: after it runs the disk check, normally about 3 to 5 minutes, It will finish and go back to C:/
Just type ( EXIT ), Enter key, and let it reboot.
you can remove the disk now or later, shouldnt matter, It will go to the options screen like before, but just let it default to the normal startup, or hit enter.
Windows should now load fine and you shouldnt get that message at startup anymore.
WHY THIS HAPPENED?, you may be asking.
For some reason, certain Dell Hardware and software conflict, usually when you have installed some new program, or for just no reason.
Your Boot Up files get corrupt or cleared and windows needs those to start.
What you did was re-installed those windows files.
Now copy and paste into a word document and print it out in case it happens again. Not likley but it could.
This works with any computer experienceing this issue, usually, unless there is something worse going on.
You can help others now that you know how and become a hero, make sure to charge them $10 though for your time:)
Let me know if this doesnt work and we can try something else.

The BIOS setup password is stored in NVRAM and can only be accessed with that password. On the bottom of the laptop there is a Service Tag number. Dell support site can use that number to generate a master password for you. http://support.dell.com/support/index.aspx?c=us&cs=19&l=en&s=dhs&~ck=mn If you need further help please post back.
