I would generally agree

I would generally agree with Kees, but if you have XP install media, I'd at least attempt reinstalling the OS first. It will probably fail, but you might get lucky and all you have is a severely corrupted OS. If it fails, which it's likely to do, then you are most likely looking at a bad HDD. So you'll need to replace that before you can go any further.
