"i'm srry i don't think it has to do with any driver or hardware problems... maybe a virus but i can't scan if i can't start the computer :("

Slave your HD to another HD/comp ( no need to bolt it in, just cable it & leave it outside the case ) & copy your stuff ( don't forget your emails & address book ) onto the other HD or other media.
You may have a choice of jumper settings on the master HD, such as master with slave or ms.

Now run your virus scans.

If you do have a friend with a comp, you can use an adaptor that enables you to slave it & connect to a PC.
Your computer shop should carry. Very cheap.

Another possible.

Boot off of a clean Windows XP cd ( your bios has to be set to boot from cd rom 1st ) choose Install ( Not > To Repair a Windows XP installation using Recovery Console, press R ) at the first prompt.
It will then search for a previous copy of Windows.
When it finds your copy, it will stop at the next prompt and ask if you want to do a repair. Hit R at this screen.
If it does'nt mention a repair > DO NOT continue.
It will then copy a lot of files and appear to be doing a reinstall ( But its not. All your programs and data are safe, all you will lose, are your Windows updates )
This will allow you to add accounts to the system that will be administrator accounts, it will also fix most problems in XP.

Any error messages you ever get, put the EXACT message into google. Hit the Pause button on the keyboard to hold the message on the screen.

You may be infected.
