Can you give more details?. How this sudden shutdown happened?
Without details i can only guess but here are some basic steps. Most probably your C drive file system got corrupted due to sudden shutdown and that could be the reason for BSOD ( I saw it several times). First boot from your XP CD and open recovery console. You should first do a "CHKDSK C: /R" from there. This should probably fix any NTFS damage. Try to boot your PC after checkdisk completed.
