If your computer is old,, you could check your BIOS config in case your onboard battery is dead. Reset the clock to the current date and fix any settings that could be wrong. Then if you are lucky your computer will boot normaly. If you then turn it off again it will loose all its current BIOS settings. Another common malfunction is the powersupply, if your computer has some exstra hard-disks cdroms or anything that takes exstra power, you could try to unplug that an see if it is able to boot without it.

He said he doesn't have a Windows disc dude, your answer fails.
You'll need to take it to a computer repair shop of some sort and have them reinstall your operating system. This will erase all your data, but you can pay to have your data backed up. It's expensive, but it works.

I am in agreement with Oni_Kami. If you don't have a Windows XP boot disc you will need to get your nearest computer service/repair shop to reinstall the Operating System. You will lose everything on the hard drive, however you can pay extra to have the majority of your data safely backed up.
I had the same issue when my Windows 7 laptop failed to get past its usual boot stage. There was nothing wrong with my BIOS settings.
