Check the Event Viewer logs (Start...Control Panel...Administrative Tools...Event Viewer) for any errors.
But, in all fairness, the repair install will probably be the way to go anyway. It'll cure most of what ails XP, but will save your settings and programs. And, you'll be that much further down the troubleshooting trail if it doesn't fix the problem.
Oh, and don't forget to visit Windows Update immediately after the repair install - sometimes repair = overwrite more recent Windows Updates in favor of the version on your CD.
