Here's another couple of links to the error message:
1) Recreating your pagefile: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/topic71367.html#
2) Download a diagnostic utility from the manufacturer of your hard drive and run it to check for problems.
3) Run chkdsk again (to see if errors are being created again).
4) Run SFC.EXE /SCANNOW to see if that'll fix it. More info on this here: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/43051/how-to-use-sfcexe-to-repair-system-files/
5) If SFC.EXE doesn't fix it, then I'd try a repair of the OS.

OK, you can do step 1 by deleting the pagefile.sys file in the %SystemRoot% directory (usually C:\) - BUT DON'T DO IT YET!!!
Step 2 is a bootable utility that doesn't require Windows to run. You'll have to boot from the CD drive
Step 3 can be run in Recovery Console
Step 4 - Try typing this at the Recovery Console prompt:
Dunno if it'll work, but it's worth a shot!
Step 5 requires booting from the CD also.

Not having a pagefile.sys file may be an issue here. On my system I've moved it to my other hard drive to help speed up the system. It's also possible that it's turned off completely (not a good idea, but one that's used occasionally).
Looks like the search for the XP Home repair disks will have to go on. Sounds like the repair install is the only option right now.
BTW, what kind of laptop is it? If it's a Gateway or eMachines, any XPHome disk will work (don't use an XPPro or Media Center disk tho'! - it'll mess up your system because the product key won't work!)
