Default xp wont boot

i think I posted in the wrong place and these are the last 3 threads of my post.
Can Anybody help

Finally got to recovery console,need to replace file
Can somebody tell me how to do this

That's a system file. You're going the long and most dangerous route.
From the start button select run. Type in just as you see it here. sfc /scannow
Yes the space is in there for a reason. But if you leave it out it doesn't work. Put your xp cd in the drive and when it opens click exit. Next click ok on the command window and go have lunch.

Thanks for the quick reply but unfortunately the machine will not boot and it only goes as far as telling me that the file is missing or corrupt.
Can I do it another way ?
