Boot from the Windows XP cd then go into recovery console and run SFC.

^^^That would be a way to accomplish sfc, but I would actually suggest doing a repair on the OS if you can't get into windows directly.

Have you tried Safe Mode, VGA Mode?

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.
