The problem means your boot process hangs up. To proceed with the fix of this issue you must try first by running your operating system under safe mode. When running in safe mode, the operating system ignores running services and other accessories that runs in your computer during boot-up. If you are able to run your operating system in safe mode, your lucky. Inside the safe mode run the cmd.exe and type “chkdsk /f” in your command prompt to run or schedule check disk on start-up to fix errors so that you can boot on normal mode.

If the above option could not be possible, run your system repair disk by booting-up using the original windows XP installation disk then choose repair on the option when prompted. On the prompt, type “chkdsk/f” then reboots.

If still can solve by this option, re-install your operating system.

If re-installation is not the solution, your hard disk drive might be damaged.
