how good of a surge protector do you have....
if its a high end one, then something must've slipped through it, however, I run without a surge protector and my computer has gone through more than a few power outages...so Im kind of mystified as to how yours would just go like this.
Did you keep your drives clean adn all that from malware, and spyware etc?
have you had any issues before with things like this, OR something similar...
this may very well be a harddrive issue, Or it may be something simpler than that,
Have you tried the repair windows option with your XP/98 disc? if not I may recommend you attempt that, as it may seem that windows is damaged somehow
