It sounds like you have some or the files used to start up your computer are corrupted.
The following procedure is not for beginners. If you are unsure about your ability to complete this task then bring it to a professional who can.
You are going to need your Windows CD to attempt this procedure.
First insert the windows XP or Vista Disk. Start up the computer. The computer should ask if you want to boot from the CD/DVD.
*Skip to the next paragraph if it says boot from CD/DVD.
If it does not then restart the PC and press F2 (or possibly another button. It should say press a button to enter setup on the first screen when the computer starts). Next there should be an option for boot. In the boot menu you should move your CD drive higher on the list than your Hard drive. Sometimes it may say press "a button" for boot sequence at startup. Compaq computers do that. Restart and then press enter when the pc asks to boot from the CD/DVD.
The setup should load and then you want to press R for Repair. It should then ask you to choose an installation. Normally there is only one choice. (C:\Windows). press the number beside your copy of windows, usually 1. Then you'll need to type the administrator password from the pc. Unfortunately if you do not know your administrator password you will not be able to continue from here (Remember to try a blank password).
*If you have forgotten your admin password you could download and burn a OPHcrack to a disk and it would find your admin password if you inserted it into the PC at startup just like the windows disc.
Next you should type the following command without the quotes: "chkdsk /r" the disk should check for and try and repair errors. When it completes you should run "fixboot" and "fixmbr" repair the startup process of the computer.
If this does not work and XP still wont start. I would recommend downloading Knoppix and burning it to a CD. It will boot the same as a the windows setup disk and you can recover the files from your hard drive with it. Attach an external drive and right click on the properties of the drive that appears, click on device and uncheck read only. Then double click the drive to mount it. The drives of your old computer should be called something like hda1 and maybe hda2. Open them and copy the data from the drive to the one that appeared when you plugged it in.
After copying the data you can reinstall windows and copy the data back.
I hope this helps you,
