Question about Computers & Internet

What is going on?
Part of the process that Windows needs to fire up has been corrupted. This prevents you using safe mode also. Generally only a repair or full install will fix it but first try a disc check
boot from any xp cd and select R at the first options screen.
select C drive by entering the number shown (1?)
hit enter when asked for admin password
type chkdsk /r (space between k and /r) and hit enter
let it do its thing - it may take some time.
