First off turn computer on and press whatever key for setup.in setup press key for default bios setup key yes to confirm.
this isnt absolutly necessary but a good place to start.
Reboot with operating disk in drive click F8 .in menu select boot from disk.When setup starts up select install windows not repair.in the next screen it tells u there is already a system installed . select repair that system.It takes more or less the same time to install fresh copy but leaves all other installed programs intact so as you dont have to spend hours finding and re installing them.There's nothing wrong with trying check disk,though check disk cant always repair the problems you have.hope this helps it'll certaintly get you back to your system before it crashed.

Use Knoppix to save your data if you need to, otherwise it sounds like you may need to reinstall the OS.
ftp://ftp.uni-kl.de/pub/linux/knoppix/KNOPPIX_V5.1.0CD-2006-12-30-DE.iso (to download Knoppix 5)
You could try using the recovery console, as previously mentioned as well. If you don't need to save data, just blow it all away and reinstall XP.
RESOLUTION loadTOCNode(1, 'resolution'); If it be the connector cable problem then replace the 40-wire cable with an 80-wire UDMA cable.
If it's a BIOS settings problem then load the 'Fail-Safe' default settings, and then reactivate the most frequently used options such as USB Support.
If it's a damaged file system case then:-
1.Insert the Windows XP CD-ROM into the CD-ROM drive, and then restart the computer.
Click to select any options that are required to start the computer from the CD-ROM drive if you are prompted.
2.When the "Welcome to Setup" screen appears, press R to start the Recovery Console.
3.If you have a dual-boot or multiple-boot computer, select the installation that you must access from the Recovery Console.
4.When you are prompted, type the Administrator password. If the administrator password is blank, just press ENTER.
5.At the command prompt, type chkdsk /r , and then press ENTER.
6.At the command prompt, type exit , and then press ENTER to restart your computer.
This takes a bit longer, but the system should boot back into Windows.
