When did the problem start, did you make any sort of changes that may have affected this?

There might be a solution here.
If all else fails, hit the reset button.

to see if it is windows or the dvd drive, put your xp os cd in the drive( or any other bootable cd) , set the bios to boot from the cd drive and restart your pc, of course if the xp set up prog starts abort imediately.

sure any bootable cd or dvd, just abort when it starts. If it does not start, then it is the drive, or cable...etc. Do not forget the bios settingto boot from the cd drive. no os disk...any bootable cd will work
