Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life. You never know when one will leave you.

Hmm aparently Windows got corrupted badly (The only solution that comes to my mind is to boot your comp with the WINXP installation CD (hopefully you have it), and start the recovery console to then go into ms dos and type C:\chkdsk /r
then wait for the whole process to end (takes about 30 mins depending on your comp's specs) then restart and see if you can now boot normally or get in at least in Safe Mode.

The FDC failure is a symptom - not a fix. For some reason your system won't recognize the floppy drive - but the floppy isn't essential at this point. The issue is that the system won't boot.
We can troubleshoot this and start trying to figure out what's causing it - but that'll take time and effort on your part. First we'll need to know the answers to a few questions:
1) What make and model of computer is it?
2) Do you have the recovery/restore/reinstallation CD/DVD's for it?
3) Do you have access to a computer that you can download and burn files to a CD/DVD?

look inside your computer and identify the motherboard
how old is it?
we might need to go into bios and check some stuff
whoever built that computer should have given you the windows xp cd
