Press F8 during startup and see if you can boot into either safemode or last known good config.

OK at least you can get that far so we come down to one of two possibilities.
hard drive developing problems or Windows itself having become corrupted.
You may benefit from running a hard drive diagnostic prog. Download this from the manufacturer of your disk. They are run from a bootable floppy or CD and can tell you if the disk has any hardware faults.

If that isn't the issue you may be left with option to do a repair install of XP. This presumes you have your XP Install CD

Check Memory with Memtest http://www.memtest.org

Check Hard Drive with Manufacturers Software

Both above run from Live CD..

While they have you testing things....test the power supply make sure that is not the problem.

Could be overheating, could be an overburdened/weak power supply. Try running a Linux Live CD like the DoD's LSP:
