If you're concerned about losing your data - you should back it up immediately. If the hard drive is dying, you may not even have time to run the tests before it dies - so backing up is the first priortity.
After that, I'd suggest running a bootable hard drive diagnostic available for free from the manufacturer of your hard drive. If the test passes, then I'd suggest using the XP Recovery Console to repair your MBR and boot sector using the fixmbr and fixboot commands. Our tutorial is located here: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/tutorials/how-to-install-the-windows-xp-recovery-console/
As an aside, if this behavior started when you moved the computer, I'd carefully check all of the connections inside the case (unplug the computer and ground yourself on the metal chassis before going into the case).
