alrite well now i cant even get my computer to load windows, first it says to select an operating system:

windows xp professional (bootscreen)
windows xp professional

so i click on the regular one, w/o bootscreen, and it goes to the startup page where the green status bar goes across the bottom, then it just goes to the blue screen. This is the message on top of the screen:

stop: c0000218 {Registry file failure}
The registry connot load the hive (file):
\SystemRoot\System32\Config\Software
or its log or alternate.
It is corrupt, absent, or not writeable.

no i know i probably have to reformat everything and wipe it out, i tried to boot it off my XP installation disk, but i get the same thing.

my major problem is that i need to get onto my harddrive, i have to print out a 7 page report for one of my classes, i understand if i reformat i will lose this and i can not afford to because it took lots of effort and the due date is soon. I have the XP disk so i can use that, is there anyway i can get my comptuer to load windows, so at the least i can print it and retype it from a copy.

Hello jrobie79,
I think you should post this issue here. This is an OS problem, not a networking issue, so a user in that forum will be better suited to solving your problem.
