Sounds, like ur boot.ini is corrupted.
Set ur BIOS to boot from CD first.
Insert the XP Setup CD.
When the text-based part of Setup begins, follow the prompts; choose the repair or recover option by pressing R. If you have a dual-boot or multiple-boot system, choose the installation that you need to access from the Recovery Console. When prompted, type the Administrator password.
At the prompt type: bootcfg /rebuild . Press Enter.
Reboot.

;) Sorry for not following your instructions. I accidentally press Enter and it formats the computer. I have no problem with formating the computer except for one thing, the monitor is not clear after it boots up. There are lines showing horizontaly and it's also shaking. :tazz:
