    Go to Control Panel -> System -> Advanced
    Click the bottom "Settings" button listed in "Startup and Recovery"
    Click on the "Edit" button

    Highlight all the words
    (just hold and move, your left mouse key, over them, then let go of your left mouse button)
    And then then right click on all the highlighted words, and select "copy"

    Then Close, Cancel, Cancel

    Go back to this message and select Reply

    *Note to kimsland* : lexissopro can`t get into Windows. :)

    What error do you get with the XP CD ?

    - Just to make sure your using it correctly,see HERE for how to run chkdisk /r from the Recovery Console

    - See HERE for more advanced options.

    - A Repair Install HERE

    - If nothing works,remove the Hard Drive and attach to another PC either internally,or

    via a USB Adapter ($20).Then copy off anything you need then run chkdisk on it.

    You can then either put it back in your own PC and see if anything works,

    or you can format/reinstall.
