try the following things

1: barrow the windows xp cd
2: insert the cd and turn on the laptop
3: boot from cd
4: when it sayins hit r to repair , hit r
5: select your hard drive that has the windows xp on it(if more then 1 portion is there the operating system is most commonly on the first portion)
6: follow the steps on your computer screen
7: if it ask for a administrators password try hitting enter.

(if there is a administrator password and u dont know it u could try flashing the bios. i dont know how to do this but some other users might.)

or u could

1: barrow the windows xp cd
2: insert the cd and turn on the laptop
3: boot from cd
4: format your computer deleting all portions listed
5: finish the formating process and start fresh with your new windows xp completely wiped exsept for the windows operating system and common windows options(like minesweep).

(please note that if u format u might have to go online and get your drivers for your computer.)
