    Pls describe your problem clearly

    Can you boot in Safe Mode? If so do a CHKDSK on your HDD.

    Do you have your Windows XP installer?

    You may have to go to the Recovery Console and do the repairs there.

    How to Enter Windows XP Recovery Console

    at the CMD prompt type

    CHKDSK C: /P

    if you have drive D: type

    CHKDSK D: /P

    an so on...

    to end the session type

    EXIT
