your windows cd is damaged, or your ram controller is faulty. gtet a new windows xp disk, or examine it for scratches, and if you feel froggy, attempt to use some sort of cd cleaner or even wax to buff out the scratches.
This is called a disk error which generally means your disk has failed. You need to get your data off it if it is not backed up. You will have to replace the disk.
A local computer shop might, just might, be able to install it into a second computer and read the data. The more you fuss with it the lower your chances of getting any data off it.
