There's several things that could be causing this - the most common being that the Boot Sector on your drive cannot locate NTLDR.
I'd suggest first running a free, bootable diagnostic from the hard drive manufacturer's website.
If the drive tests good, then I'd suggest booting from your XP installation CD an entering the Recovery Console: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/tutorials/how-to-install-the-windows-xp-recovery-console/
Once in there, type each of the following commands exactly as they appear, and press Enter after each one. Answer Y and press Enter for the prompts that appear.
