What are the details of the computer please. Branded if so make and model pls.
Do you have the XP installation CD (do not worry not going to suggest a reinstall)
If branded and one not provided with machine, then it will not be needed if there is a recovery partition on the hard drive.

Go back to Run. Type "Cmd" when that opens after the C:\ and whatever else is there type "cd\"
You will now have just a C:\> type as below. ie: sfc /scannow

Re: Dell Inspiron 1300 XP help

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

At the command prompt, type sfc /scannow and follow the prompts.

Hi and welcome to Geeks to Go! :)

Please begin your own topic, rather than adding to another user's post. While your situations may be similar, they are not identical, and the differences in your system can cause problems when trying to apply a separate fix.

Please post a new topic in the appropriate forum.
