Tips for a great answer:
Place the Windows XP Professional installation CD into your computer's disc drive and restart your computer.
Press any key on your keyboard when you see the message "Press any key to boot from CD..." appear on the screen.
Press the "Enter" key and then press the "F8" key.
Select your Windows XP installation and then press the "R" key. The repair installation process begins, and takes about 30 to 45 minutes to finish. Once the process has finished, you can use the computer again.
