Recovering Windows XP after crash

By Ken ·
My laptop runs Windows XP Home and I installed SP2 on it when it was first released. I started it off doing a defragment on my drive last night and left it. When I returned the system had restarted itself and gone into the Boot Options menu. Since then I haven't been able to load into Windows so it looks as if the FAT has been corrupted. I have tried using FIXBOOT, FIXMBR and CHKDSK in Recovery Console but still won't come back. Any assistance is appreciated.
