That has nothing to do with the operating system.
Check:
Hard Drive
Memory
Anything that is connected to the motherboard.
Something is mad, and needs to be removed.

To test.
Remove everything from the board.
Leaving: Memory, Monitor

See if it will boot further than you have gotten so far.
Then add the HD, and continue till you find the item that is crashing the system.

Good Luck

Sound like a hard drive failure... Have you tried going into safe mode?

From my experience it looks like you have a problem with your power supply.
could you try another one?

Well last night I was deleting some files because I want to move this machine into a vm environment and I deleted all files that on c: that weren't in a folder.  Maybe I deleted a system file?  I wasn't aware of any system files that reside on c: that aren't in a folder.

If you deleted the files in C:\, then this is what you deleted, IF you had
Show Hidden Files and Folders on.

AUTOEXEC.BAT
boot.ini
CONFIG.SYS
hb_4.tmp
hb_8C.tmp
IO.SYS
MSDOS.SYS
NTDETECT.COM
ntldr
pagefile.sys

Try what Tony recommended and see if you can get yourself back in.
You may not be able to, it all depends on what you have deleted.

Your only other option, is to take the XP CD, and restore your system using the CD.
This will get you back up, however, you will have to reapply all your updates and SP's as well.

Good Luck
