Poster says it's Win 7 not XP.

If your main battery is reasonably easy to remove try this:
Turn off laptop and unplug power cord. Remove battery then hold the power off button in for 20 seconds to discharge the motherboard components. It's a long shot but has worked at odd times so it's worth a try.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

If the battery is not charging anymore then take it out of the laptop permanently. The battery may be cause of power interruption due to shorts inside the battery.
Is the time and date in BiOS still set to date? If not, the BIOS battery may be dead as well.

If #6 above doesn't help then still try my #4 as it's easy to do. The reason the battery removal was mentioned (in #4) was to ensure it didn't prevent the motherboard components from discharging.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

Are we sure the OS isn't XP? OP says the laptop isn't booting, instead it's showing a corrupted error message about boot.ini. Boot.ini hasn't been used since Vista.

Either way, the solution's the same. Assuming the HDD's not dead, get an appropriate install disk for the machine's OS, boot into recovery mode, reinstall the bootloader and rebuild its config. Actual steps depend on the Windows version.
