Do you have the Windows 2000 CD or Floppy Discs that (should have) come with the machine?

No legal way. See if you can find it, Windows 2000 has a good repair installation utility.

If not, try starting your computer into safe mode by tapping the F8 key while it is booting (for more detailed instructions, click here). Does your desktop load?
