You most likely will not be able to reinstall windows. It seems that there is a harddisk faliure, it happens. If you can however, be sure not to stress the system.
Good luck.

Download and burn to CD your hard drive diagnostics/repair DOS version. Seagate has Seatools, WD has Lifeguard, etc. It will be on the Support Downloads webpage for your model HD.

You can also try the Surface Scan and File System check on PW CD.
