Re: logon

Can you describe the issue ion more detail?
Do you see a startup screen with the Windows Logo? Does the logon screen come up? Does the computer get out of the BIOS startup?

Go into your BIOS
Set the 1st Boot device preference to CD
Insert your windows XP disk
Boot from CD
Run XP Repair

You do this at your own risk. I am in no way accountable for damage to your computer.

Give me a message if you need further assistance
