You can start by telling us the make/model of your computer. If it's a store bought brand (Acer, Dell, HP, etc), it should have a recovery partition that will allow you to reinstall the OS. However, reinstalling may not even be necessary. Did you google the error message?

If you need an XP disk, you can download the ISO thru the following link. Once downloaded, it will have to be burned to a CD using Imgburn or similar software. Use your product key for the repair or installation.

Windows XP SP3 (544MB) - Direct Download

Imgburn 2.5.8.0 (3.30MB) - Direct Download

And if there are files etc. that you would like to save - regardless of what you may have to do to re-enable the system…; particularly if going for a Factory reset/restore (using the recovery partition) or re-installing the OS via an XP disk - then be aware…

If you do any kind of reset/restore routine - it will erase all files on the computer in the process - including your personal files. So very wise to save them first.

Download an Ubuntu ISO save it to a hard drive, burn it to a DVD. Boot up with that DVD, and you can access the hard drive on your faulty computer, copy/save those personal/special files to an external location; typically DVD. Check the copies are accessible on at at least one other working system; then put safely to one side. You can later (if needs-be) restore them to your rebuilt/repaired etc. computer.

ubuntu.com - the ISO is a freebie download.

Note that if you do download and burn etc. an XP ISO (from the site Riider suggests) you likely will need to get the OEM version - not the retail. Most pre-installed systems come with an OEM installation - not a retail version. Thus the key you have for your installation is likely an OEM and will only work with an OEM version.
