A recent hardware or software may be the cause. Maybe after installing windows updates.
Hold the F8 or F12 key when you boot up your PC, you'll be prompted with menu just select the one saying "Last Known Good Configuration".

Will not boot


If you dont have the option to run:
"Windows XP Recovery Console"
You probably have to install windows on a second PHYSICAL drive, Disconnect the failing one first!
Reconnect the failing drive in slave mode.
1. Start/Run "cmd.exe"
2. execute "chkdsk /F /R /X D:"
3. Shutdown
4. Swap drives.
5. Start system (while praying :) )

Power windows don't work


This could be several things: lets start with the basics, check for a blown fuse or failed wire (this would especially hold true if they failed at the same time. Could also be control switch (does the passenger switch operate its window?) if this is the case the master switch has either failed or failed wiring. Lastly there are the window motors, these too may have failed. If it sounds as if the windows are trying to operate but unable to move; the mechanics of the windows may be coroded, overly dirty or in need of lubrication (WD40)
I hope this may have helped,
