Hwo to Fix XP Won't Boot Issue

1XP won't boot! What should I do?

My windows XP won't start. I shutted down the computer yesterday, today when I started it it will run till the windows boot screen, when the bar reaches the end the screen will stay black and nothings happens.
I tried to boot in safe mode but after loading the drivers it just stays there as well and wont go on with the boot. Is there a way to run a repair or a scandisk to try and solve the problem without reinstaling windows?
Really appreciate any help.
Thank you in advance
