    Try running CheckDisk from the Recovery Console:
    • Boot from your Windows XP Setup CD (or download a free bootable Recovery
    • Disc from HERE)
    • Select the first R prompt, to log into the Recovery Console
    • Press 1 then Enter
    • Type: chkdsk C: /r then press enter (note: 1 space after C: )
    • Allow CheckDisk to complete

    STOP: 0x00000024 description: Damage in the NTFS file system
    If the above (CheckDisk) does not fix the fault)
    You could try a Repair install of Windows XP: Please choose your OS version
