    have you tried booting to safe mode and trying mode doesn't load all the drivers so this might help..or even boot to safe mode with cmd prompt. good luck

    when you run chkdsk and it says drive is looked it should also say would you like to schedual the next time the system restarts

    just type Y and when it restarts it will run before windows loads

    Ref: Check disk

    Perhaps your system files are corrupt, just run sfc /scannow with XP CD in the tray, it will restore all the corrupt files ( Remember space before forward flash ! /)
