I have a problem logging into windows. When I start my computer everything is fine but it goes to a log On to windows screen. I am able to type in different user names but when I try to log in, it says logging out saving settings and goes back to the log On to windos screen. It does the same thing when I try to boot in safe mode. Now my windows came preinstalled so I do have a driver recovery cd but it doesnt boot. Not sure if its a bootable cd or not. I did go a change the bios so the the cd rom would start first. So I have two questions? Is there a way to fix windows or if I have to reset back to factory conditions will jpegs and mp3s be lost? Thats all I really care about on this hardrive.

Yes. You'd have to back them up, first.

Download Windows Recovery Console: http://www.thecomput...om/files/rc.iso
Download, and install free Imgburn: http://www.imgburn.c...hp?act=download
Using Imgburn, burn rc.iso to a CD.
Boot to the CD...let it finish loading.
When the "Welcome to Setup" screen appears, press R to start the Recovery Console.
Then, follow the steps from here: http://icrontic.com/...pair_windows_xp, starting below this picture on page 1:
