I'm guessing this is caused by a failing hard drive or a VIRUS!

Use your Windows XP disk, boot from that, take the option to install windows, then when it says something like 'there is already a copy of windows on this partition' or whatever take the 'R' option to do a recovery.

Don't go into recovery console - it won't help you.

If a repair doesn't work then just re-install windows 'over the top' of the existing partition (don't go and format it or anything!!!!). Most things will still work

I don't get how on earth companies can get away with not providing a XP disc!!! I know why they do it, but surely if you've paid for the operating system you should get the disc too? Luckily we got an XP CD with ours, thats helped out many a time when I've been forced to fix the computer!

It certainly sounds like a re-install. However...
You say you 'normally' press run. I guess you mean 'start windows normally' which leads me to believe that this is happening a lot. I trust you only have 1 OS on there ? I would seriously enable SMART on your hard drive if available from your BIOS. Sounds to me like you may have a hard drive on its way out.
