I've had that error message shortly before the Hard Drive failed.

do you have xp cd? if so try booting from cd and do a repair. or you may have a recovery cd,
and at what point do you get that message?

Have you been inside the case or moved it recently. It's possible that a cable is dislodged.

Have you recently made any changes in your bios. Make sure you do not have any disks left in your drives. Also ensure your Hard Disk is named in your boot sequence in the bios.

you have removed any floppy disks?
Check leads to mainboard & hdrive have not become loose. Can the disk be seen at start of boot sequence?
