At start up tap..f8..into safe mode..select command prompt..type..scanreg/restore

Please re-verify, are you running XP or Win9X ?? If it's XP and are unable to get into Windows, do a "repair" installation using the XP cd-rom.

You need to set the cd-rom drive as the first boot device in the BIOS in order to boot to the XP disc.
