Unfortunately that means either your windows installation is corrupt\015\012and needs to be reinstalled or the hard drive has failed and needs to\015\012be replaced. If you do not have a windows xp disc you will need a\015\012technician to do this as you will not be able to without the disc. If\015\012you do have a disc however follow these steps.
\015\012
\015\012First insert the windows XP disc into the drive
\015\012Then when the machine says press any key to boot from CD press enter
\015\012Wait for the windows setup to load completely
\015\012Then highlight the windows XP partition it should be labeled windows XP
\015\012Then hit R on the keyboard
\015\012This will start a repair installation of windows
\015\012If it does not show the windows xp partition try installing to unpartitioned space
\015\012
\015\012If the windows disc cannot find the hard drive or the repair does not\015\012completely unfortunately it means that the hard drive has failed and\015\012needs to be replaced.
