    Do you have a windows disc, If you do you can boot from the disc and choose the repair option,

    sounds like you may have to do repair install, place your XP in the CD drive and select to boot from it. Select a repair install, sounds like you have corrupted files due to file outage

    sounds like some install files have been damaged, you could put the winxp disk in and run a repair that will replace any missing files, you sure this pc is virus free, have you turned the pc off (at the wall)then start up and not just a restart (using the restart button).if that does not claer it then try the repair, hope this helps

    service pack wouldnt start, have put in t-rex which is the disc i got with the computer, fingers crossed:thumbsup:

    sounds like unmountable boot volume

    Sounds Like Dammaged Boot Sectors Too Maybe A Chkdsk Wouldent Go A Miss

    ubcd4win.com or something....u got access to a working pc with a cd burner... u need that to make the ultimate boot cd for windows...

    oh ya chkdsk defo... first thing to do.

    chkdsk /f /r... but they need to get to the comand prompt with a bootable cd first... ubcd4win is really good as it has loads of excellent recovery software too... if chkdsk does not resolve the issue.
