Could be quite a few things. What are your system details?
Are your harddrives nearly full?
Are there a lot of programs loading at start up?

Do you have XP home, XP pro, Vista?

Not a solution but read this similar thread click here

Can you get it to start in Safe Mode?

If so, then I suggest you do this, then run System Restore and roll the computer back to a date/time before the problem started.

Repair XP by replacing corrupt files

sfc /scannow

in the run box, press enter and let system file checker find and replace missing / corrupt file in windows and explorer.This will take awhile to complete and you may be asked for the CD to be in the drive if windows is not preinstalled on the hard drive.
