win xp won't boot after power failure

While I was reading mail I had a power failure. I restarted the computer a while after the power was restored and while the system was booting...power failure...argh!
Now, when I turn on the system it doesn't boot up. I'm taken to an error screen that offers three different safe mode start up options etc. I tried all of the options (all five) and none of them successfully start windows.
Is there a way to get this system to boot without losing my data?
my system information is as follows:
P4 HT 3.2
Win XP SP2
2X190 Gb Maxtor SATA
