Are you in Safe Mode now?

Click Start then Run...type sfc /scannow (Note the space between sfc and /) and press "Enter". You will be asked for your installation cd, so have it handy. Wait for the scan to finish (this might take up to an hour). When it's finished, click Start then Run...type chkdsk /r (Again...note the space) and reboot when prompted (type Y and press Enter). This will run on boot-up so restart will take a while...be patient.

Let me know if the first one starts.

The beauty of the repair is that it only replaces system files. Your data and settings will be ok.

You shouldn't get anything about a partition though. First blue screen, press "Enter". Second blue screen, press "F8". Third blue screen, press "R". We don't want Recovery Console...DON'T press "R" in the first blue screen.

no..i must pick a partitioned spot. I assume since when i put xp on here I didnt fill up the entire space there are two choices a partition with the currect xp on there and the unpartitioned.. I assume pressing enter on the xp partition is fine...i just am overly cautious.

Unless it asks you to delete a partition or warns you about losing all your data, you'll be ok.
