Possible that you need to re-install windows XP or just use a repairal tool.

If you have your Windows XP cd, try booting from the cd and press R at the first menu to go to recovery console.

Once you get to the command prompt, run chkdsk /r to run a full chkdsk on the drive.

It sounds like you may have a startup appliction that is preventing Windows from gainging exclusive access to the drive.

i think windows cannot do scandisk for some reason, not that it cannot boot. so no need to format it.

what's the exact message windows gave u?
