Re: XP won't boot
Ohh man.....you got some corrupt files there, if you put in your windows XP cd and do a repair install it should work. But if I were you, and depending on how long your windows installation has been on that pc, I'd recommend a complete reformat and start clean with a fresh install. I know it could be a pain, but it's your best bet.
When all else fails...Ham Radio!
I still have the same old HP DV9700T laptop I've had for years...still kickin'
