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?

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there https://tinyurl.com/ycpxl
