Default Everything going WRONG!! Cant even run windows repair

Ok, first it started with windows media player, everytime I plugged something in or unpluged something from the usb ports, it would say, "Windows media player has stopped working" So than I figured, ok, system restore will fix it. But before I did that, I wanted to check something online, and I try and connect to the internet, and sprint gives me the error #633, modem is already in use or not configured, yet it works fine on the computer I am typing on now. So than I try system restore. That fails, twice on 2 different restore points. So now I am trying to run windows repair, and it cant find my partitions when I boot from the disk, to run windows repair on!! I cant do anything. Think its a virus?

Oh, that would suck, but it boots up fine. I was planning on buy an additional harddrive soon.

Hang on a min, are you saying that the computer boots ok but if you try to boot with the XP disc to do a format it doesnt detect any drives.
