Had a similar problem like this several times. Try choosing safe mode. Safe mode will load the required drivers. After safe mode finishes the loading process, restart your computer and choose to start windows normally. The problem you mention usually happens when the computer is turned off without using normal shut down procedures. Also happens when you have a sudden power outage.
u need to format using a windows 98 sec boot disc. place the floppy in to the comp. switch on the comp. let the disc run, making sure your bios is set to boot floppy first. when disc is finished setting type fdisk then when finished delete drive by pressing 4 .add drive when finished by pressing 1 and following the insturctions. when finished press crtl+alt+del let the comp, reboot the when the disk as finished loading type format c: press yes let it run press crtl +alt+del again then take out floppy disc and put in winpx . as this sounds like you have a virus in your registery
If you boot from the XP CD and choose the first repair option it will load to a DOS prompt. From there type "chkdsk /r" and press enter. This will run checkdisk on your hard drive and repair any problems that it finds. It will take 45 minutes or more depending on the size of your drive. Once it finishes type exit to reboot and remove the CD. Your computer should boot normally.
This happens when the computer gets full of "junk" (this happens with any computer over time) and can be remedied with a fresh windows install.
If you don't plan to reinstall windows in near future I suggest you go to Control Panel -> Add/Remove Programs and uninstall any software you don't use/need
Also tweaking the system registry migh help speed up boot time:
1. Click ‘Start’ then 'Run’
2. Type in ‘Regedit’ then click ‘Ok’
3. Navigate to ‘HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\Cur rentControlSet\Control\Session Manager\Memory Management\PrefetchParameters\ ‘
4. Right-click on “EnablePrefetcher” and set the value to ‘0′ 5. Close 'Regedit' 6. Navigate to 'Windows\Prefetch' folder (usualy drive on C:) and delete all its contents
5. Reboot. 7. Enjoy greatly improved boot time ;]
