You will probably at least need some sort of boot CD that has chkdsk on it, which will let you run a chkdsk to attempt to fix the problem. Or you could reinstall the OS if you had your hands on a copy of an Operating System of your choice. It could be as bad as the hard drive is dead though.

Yes you need bootable winxp disk or recovery disk.
Then boot your computer with that disk.
For that first put that disk in your cd or dvd rom.
Then when you power up the computer press F1 or F2 or "del' key then you can enter in bios.
Then go to boot option then set first boot device as your cd or dvd rom then save settings and exit.
Then it boot with disk.
then follow the procedure then choose "r" for recovery console then type in prompt "chkdsk /r"
Then press "y"
then it fix error on harddisk.
Thats it.
Let me know if you need more assistance.
Thanks.

Program


Fix-It Utilities is a program by Avanquest that is marketed as an all-around computer protection and enhancement tool.
Fix-It Utilities scans your computer for potential problems and fixes them automatically. Additionally, it monitors your computer in real time to alert you about hardware and software issues before they can cripple your computer.
If you are looking for a utility to handle your computer maintenance for you, Fix-It Utilities is one program that you might consider selecting.

Double-click the downloaded program file if you purchased the digital version of Fix-It Utilities directly from Avanquest.
If you purchased the boxed retail edition, insert the installation disc and allow a moment for the Fix-It Utilities installation program to load.
Click "Next" when the Fix-It Utilities Installation Wizard appears.
Read the terms of the Avanquest license agreement carefully before continuing.
If you are willing to abide by the terms, click the "Accept" button to continue.
Enter the name that you would like to register Fix-It Utilities under, and then type your 24-character product key exactly as it is shown in the product packaging or the email sent by Avanquest when you purchased Fix-It Utilities online.
Click "Next."
Select the radio button labeled "Complete" to install all of the features of Fix-It Utilities, and then click "Next" twice.
The installation utility begins copying the files for Fix-It Utilities to the hard drive.
When this process is complete, the installation utility displays a screen with four check boxes.
Use the four check boxes on the screen to indicate whether you would like Fix-It Utilities to check for and install updates automatically, whether you would like the program to make snapshots of your system for recovery in the event of a problem, whether you would like the program to monitor your computer for malware and viruses and whether you would like the program to scan your email.
Click "Next," and then click "OK" and "Finish."
Fix-It Utilities is installed.
If you used the check box to configure Fix-It Utilities to check for updates automatically, the program begins scanning the Internet for updates immediately.
