You should be able to boot off a OEM CD to repair windows and get it back into bootable state.

Worse case scneario you will have to pull the HD to mount it in another computer to at least make the copies of the files and documents.  You may want to consider doing this anyways just to be safe.

You may have faulty hardware.
Download UBCD and run full system diagnostics, then report back for further advice.
