Its best to get the windows reloaded into the computer to solve the issues your having. This can be done at almost any computer repair shop or company that does such things. or if you get your hands on another cd.

My xps i don't come on when you boot up the CD light comes on for a second and then all I get is a black screen


When you boot up hold down the F8 button on your keyboard until you see start up options then click on start up repair
  • Startup Repair is a Windows recovery tool that can fix certain problems, such as missing or damaged system files, that might prevent Windows from starting. Startup Repair is located on the System Recovery Options menu, which is on the Windows Vista installation disc. If your computer has preinstalled recovery options, it might also be stored on your computer's hard disk. For more information, see Startup Repair: frequently asked questions and What are the system recovery options in Windows Vista? If your computer does not include Startup Repair, your computer manufacturer might have customized or replaced the tool. Check the information that came with your computer or go to the manufacturer's website.
  • Change restart settings in safe mode. If your computer is stuck in a loop where Windows fails, attempts to restart, and then fails again repeatedly, restart your computer in safe mode and select the Disable automatic restart on system failure checkbox. For more information, see Advanced startup options (including safe mode).
  • Reinstall. If no other options have solved the problem, and you are sure that your computer's hardware is functioning normally, you might need to reinstall Windows. A custom (clean) installation of Windows will permanently delete all of the files on your computer and reinstall Windows, so only use this option if all other recovery options have been unsuccessful. After the installation, you will need to reinstall your programs and restore your files from backup copies. For more information, see Installing and reinstalling Windows‌.

Startup repair won't run


"Unmountable boot volume" this problem is your hard disk partition which is failure to recognize & identify the operating system running on the hard disk. Reformat your hard disk and put another operating system to run again your computer.

Windows wx start up failure


The shut down caused a system glitch. You will need to run a system repair with your recovery or operating system disc. Rare, but occasionally, the hard drive crashes under these circumstances and will need to be replaced. Usually if this happens, the hard drive was on it's way out anyway, and would have crashed eventually.
