It would be advantageous that you back up your data before using the manufacture's recovery disk.
By the way, if your computer was manufactured by HP and it has a factory load, I doubt very much a stand-alone XP cd would allow you to fix your problem. It might even make it worse by wiping all your data before you have a chance to save it!!!
You do have other options. If you want to save your data, you can pull your hard drive from your non-working PC, and install it as a slave on another computer. Then transfer all your documents over to that computer until you get your non-working computer working again.
Take note that before you move your hard drive to another computer, you MUST set the drive jumper to the SLAVE position.
PS... you should have used your original post instead of starting a new one.
