I need serious help. I'm typing this from a laptop. Ok, on my computer, when I turn it on and it goes through its stuff and the login page appears, there's nothing there! It looks like the windows XP login screen, except no names to login with, and the 'shut down computer' button that is normally in the bottom left is gone too.

The only thing on it is the 'Microsoft Windows XP' logo.

I know nothing at all about computers so yeah. The OS is Windows XP Service Pack 2. That's what it says when I tried to use safe mode, anyways, which I can't use at all.

Any help? =( Also, when turning it on the first thing it shows is the Biostar logo. Don't know if that means the processor or what.

did you try a repair?

Start the operating system from the CD-ROM,

When the computer starts from the CD, the system checks your hardware

and then prompts you to select one of the following options:

To set up Windows XP now, press ENTER.

To repair a Windows XP installation using Recovery Console, press R.

To quit Setup without installing Windows XP, press F3.

Press ENTER.

Press F8 to accept the Licensing Agreement.

A box lists your current Windows XP installation, and then the system

prompts you to select one of the following options:

To repair the selected Windows XP installation, press R.

To continue installing a fresh copy of Windows XP without repairing, press ESC.

Press R to start the automatic repair process. After repairing Windows XP,

you may need to re-download all updates.
