    Make sure that in BIOS, the CD-ROM is set as first boot device.

    Boot the computer using the XP CD. At the "Welcome To Setup" screen, press 'R' for repair. When asked which Windows installation you'd like to logon to, press '1'.
    At the prompt, type: chkdsk /r

    At finish type: exit

    Maybe this will help.

    dear firah

    first of all thanks to u .


    actually i solved that prblm myself.

    i got "kernel32.dll is not a valid image" etc...

    i used following steps to slove the problem

    1.boot through WINXP cd .

    2.go to repair mode [using "R"]

    copy kernel32.dll from "servicepackfiles" folder in "windows" folder to "c:\windows\system32 folder" [yes i overwrote it ]

    then i reboot Windows XP . Now its working fine.

    dear friend my doubt is

    1.what can happend to come this problem????????????????

    2.is there any possibility to solve this problem without boot through WINXP CD

    3 actually i had " Servicepackfiles " folder in windows XP . yes i installed service pack seperately so i got " Servicepackfiles" folder. If i didn't what can i do???

    4. is there any possibility [OS problem & software problem] to reboot windows XP frequently


    thanks

    Right-click My Computer> Properties> Advanced> Startup and Recovery> Settings.
    UNcheck: Automatically restart.

    Now, should a problem arise, an error message will be generated instead of the computer restarting.
