Re: Problems at startup
If you are doing a simple repair install then you will not lose all your files. The only way that will happen in reinstalling XP is if you choose the clean install and it will format the hard drive first.
Just put the cd in the drive, and restart, and it will boot, select repair XP, and you should be fine.

Time tells all, but if the moment in time passes and you miss it, then you will remember it for ever!!
